[Snort-users] update via oinkmaster

Well, for HTTP updates I am using a proxy, and we authorized only snort.org domains :)

But it seems we are redirected to differents places, that's because you are using Amazon's cloud probably :) So my updates are blocked :(

Since we are using a whitelist I want to be sure It will only be on amazon and not somewhere else ... because it won't work on our side...

I have to open my proxy's whitelist ... another weeks of authorization here ;)

Thanks a lot

Updating sigs is easy, generate your oinkcode, and place your oinkcode into your oinkmaster.conf, and go..  However, it should /never/ go to sourceforge.  Our rules are hosted on Amazon's S3 cloud. 

The only thing we have on sourceforge is for FreeBSD's port structure.  That's why I asked you if you were running FreeBSD.

What whitelist are you referring to?

I think we are just basically confused. 

Please explain what you are trying to do, the command you are running, the .conf file that you are using, and the output from the command.
