Thank you James. It worked. But I have a question based on the output that I get for pulledpork (see output below).

Question : There is no output generated for creation of stub files, so does it mean that the current stub files doesn't require any changes? The timestamp when the stub files were created was 30 Aug 2013. No changes thereafter? How often are so_rules updated?

>From your conf file:

You specified a directory, and the app requires a filename...try /etc/snort/rules/snort.rules
