[Honeywall] Honeywall - Snort Rules Update Problem

It appears as if the option to update the Snort rules is not working
correctly from within the Honeywall web management interface.  After I
click "Update Rules Now", I perform a tail on /var/log/hwruleupdate and
receive the following response:
Downloading file from
/usr/bin/oinkmaster.pl: Error: could not download from
Output from wget follows:

Connecting to www.snort.org||:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
18:39:30 ERROR 404: Not Found.

Oink, oink. Exiting.../

If I manually enter this link into firefox and replace the
snortrules-snapshot-2.6.tar.gz with snortrules-snapshot-2.8.tar.gz, it
initiates a file transfer.  Thus, what can I do to correct this in the
honeywall?  Can I safely update the url parameter to download the 2.8
rule set instead?  If so, where is this configuration information held? 
Or do I need to ugrade Snort first?
