I could not find any rules for 2972 from the snort site. Our snort is running 2.9.7.2. The URL we use are
<a href="Http://www.snort.org/reg-rules(sub-rules)/snortrules-snapshot-2972.tar.gz/" target="_blank">
Http://www.snort.org/reg-rules(sub-rules)/snortrules-snapshot-2972.tar.gz/.</a>..<br>

Thanks,<br>
