I’m not sure what your problem is, but upgrading Snort won’t have any effect on the way PP processes the rules. 


There is a lot of information out there from multiple people having the same problem.


Try the link below and I’m confident the answer is in there somewhere.




Best regards,

I am getting the following error when I am trying to update my rule-set using pulled pork

Checking latest MD5 for snortrules-snapshot-2956.tar.gz....
    Error 500 when fetching http://www.snort.org/reg-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2956.tar.gz.md5 at /usr/local/bin/pulledpork.pl <http://pulledpork.pl>  line 463
    main::md5file('*oinkcode', 'snortrules-snapshot-2956.tar.gz', '/tmp/', 'http://www.snort.org/reg-rules/') called at /usr/local/bin/pulledpork.pl <http://pulledpork.pl>  line 1847

I am a registered user. Some one in the mailing list told me to upgrade my snort. But even after up-garding my snort to version, I am still getting the same error.
