@Joe: 2961 ruleset is available only for subscribed user and not for registered user. Is it mandatory to have a matching version of snort.conf file and rule set i.e. if I want to download 2960 rule-set I must have a 2960 version snort.conf file ?

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.

Subject: [Snort-users] Error 500 during update of rule-set using pulled-pork

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

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.
