I have set up /etc/oinkmaster.conf with http://dl.snort.org/reg-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2.8.tar.gz.When running:

oinkmaster.pl -o /etc/snort/rules

I get:

Don't know how I managed to complicate that, but you were right. Thanks.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
