OK, as far as I understand and read on variuos sites this can be done
only by downloading the correct (184.108.40.206) rules ?

I am registered, no subscription. Now I see on
https://www.snort.org/snort-rules/ that registered Users do not have

As far as I understand right now: SO files updates will be done by a
rules update. But because I am only a registered user and have no
subscription the new rules are not available, yet.
So for the next days I will loose snort_dynamicrules (max. 30 days) ?
Workaround is to comment out
#dynamicdetection directory /usr/local/snort/lib/snort_dynamicrules
until rules are available
Is this understanding correct ? Perhaps we should buy a subscription
