[Snort-users] rule download problem

What was the solution to this? I'm trying to setup Pulled Pork using the new download location and am getting the same error (501) when trying to download the tar.gz file.

Checking latest MD5....
        Fetching md5sum for: snortrules-snapshot-2853.tar.gz.md5
        most recent rules file digest: aa012e45a5756acabb0e8c31e862f336
Rules tarball download....
        Fetching rules file: snortrules-snapshot-2853.tar.gz
        Error 501 when fetching snortrules-snapshot-2853.tar.gz at ./pulledpork.pl line 261.

Do I have the right settings?

        rule_file = snortrules-snapshot-2853.tar.gz
        base_url = http://www.snort.org/sub-rules
        version = 0.4.2

I've waited the morning out to see if this would clear up, but I've been ping-ponging back and forth between 501 and 403 errors when using the Pulled Pork svn to try and download the new rules.  Below is the verbose output... any words of advice here?

The rule download location has changed, you will want to get the latest version of pulledpork from svn (0.4.2) or wait until the tarball is released shortly.

I've been using PulledPork (v 0.4.1 Stumbling Leprechaun) to get my rules, but in the last week or so it has started giving this error:
Error 403 when fetching http://www.snort.org/pub-bin/oinkmaster.cgi/snortrules-snapshot-2860_s.tar.gz.md5 at /home/xxxx/snortrules/pulledpork/pulledpork.pl<http://pulledpork.pl> line 306

It does this even if I wait several hours between attempts, so I don't think the 15 min limit is involved.

These are the applicable lines from the conf file:

My subscription is up to date--I can log in to the web site and download the rules ok.  Any ideas?
