[Snort-users] Updating Rules with PulledPork and no outside connection

Attached is a log of the run. Attached is my pulledpork.conf and I'm looking
for something that is causing PulledPork to not process the opensource.gz
file in offline mode.

It appears to be a problem with PulledPork only processing the
snortrules-snapshot-2931.tar.gz  in offline mode as PulledPork processes
both files (opensource.gz and snortrules-snapshot-2931.tar.gz ) if you are
processing in online mode.

My run line includes switches: -nvT

Both files have been place in the: temp_path=

I'm assuming that PulledPork should process both files exactly as it does in
offline mode as it does in online mode, minus the file downloading, and as
long as the two files reside in the designated temp folder.

I'm not sure about checksums in offline mode as  PulledPork seems to process
the snortrules-snapshot-2931.tar.gz every time its ran in offline mode,
regardless of any checksum. I believe it does the same thing in in online
mode. The checksum only prevents PullePork  from downloading the file/s
again in online mode.

Kindest regards,
Michael...

Place the tarballs in the defined temp path that you have in your
pulledpork.conf.. You will want to tell pp not to download and not to
validate checksums...
