Hi Pete,

Thanks for clearing that up. I believe I'll take your initial advice and skip 
the make-install. However it's good to know I could do it that way for future 
updates.

Thanks,
Daniel

I took a quick look through the tarball and was reminded -- all of the
configuration elements are provided as samples after make-install. The
instructions say to copy the samples to their correct names and then
modify them appropriately-- so that part of it is a manual process. In
that case it should be safe to do make install and just skip those steps
since your configuration is already happy.

All that said; again -- you're really only interested in updating your
SNFServer binary. The rest isn't changed.

Best,

2016-01-04 Thread Daniel Bayerdorffer
Hi Pete,

I have a couple of questions about upgrading. We will be upgrading SNF4SA 
running on Ubuntu 14.04 with Zimbra email server.

I previously compiled the source code to install SNF4SA. Can I compile the 
latest version and run the make-install to overwrite the existing version? If 
so, do I need to re-apply our license information to the configuration files, 
etc.?

Are there any other gotcha's I should be aware of?

Thanks,
Daniel

Subject: [sniffer] New Version -- SNFMulti 3.2.0 -- Strangers

Hello Sniffer Folks,

A new version of Message Sniffer is available. The most exciting new
feature for this version is: Strangers.

The "Strangers" algorithm replaces the previous White-Guard algorithm.

Strangers prevents high-intensity pre-tested spam from poisoning IP
reputations in GBUdb and enhances SNF's sensitivity to these kinds of
attacks. Once pattern rules begin to match the pre-tested attack the IP
reputations quickly climb into the black enhancing all of SNF's learning
systems. Normal, but new, IP sources are held to low-confidence
reputations for several hours, but after that are allowed to develop
normally.

Short summary: Strangers lets SNF close the door more quickly on
pre-tested spam while enhancing SNF's learning sensitivity to those
events and without interfering with normal IP reputation processing.

Here are some links:

Thanks! and Happy Holidays!

I think that should work.
The only thing that's really different is SNFServer.
You could stop after make and then replace your SNFServer binary leaving
everything else in place.

I don't think there are any other gotchas.
