[Snort-users] Snort rule download fails

I am getting repeated failures when downloading the rules files from
snort.org. This is happening with oinkmaster and wget. Well I suppose that
is to be expected really as oinkmaster uses wget. Below is a sample of part
of an 'oinkmaster' log. Does anyone know what I can do to solve this? This
happens with 2.7 and 2.8.

regards Brian
