    Hi Mr. Y,

    * Subscribers receive real-time rules updates as they are available – get more subscription highlights here
    * Registered users can access rule updates 5 days after release to subscription users.
    * Unregistered users receive a static ruleset at the time of each major Snort Release

    Become an unregistered user and get the download you are entitled to, i.e. the static rule set or the community rule set from:
    http://www.snort.org/pub-bin/downloads.cgi

    Note: The Community Rulesets contain rules submitted by members of the open source community. While these rules are available as is, the VRT performs basic tests to ensure that new rules will not break Snort. These rules are distributed under the GPL and are freely available to all open source Snort users.

    Snort subscription referrers to companies that need high-end security for their data.
    And the price is too small for gateways of corporate networks.
    Home user does not EVER need to subscribe.

    I wouldnt even pay that to SNORT class A each month. :D

    Use Kaspersky and Online Armor. Once a year payment of i believe $40 each and i would strongly debate giving you better protection that this guff.

    Forget Snort on its own and get Sunbelt Kerio firewall, which has snort IDS built in? ;)

    Sunbelt Kerio firewall has a very small subset of Snort rules. But it is enough for client pcs.
