Anyone else having problems logging into Apple services? Eg iCloud, iBooks Store, iTunes, etc.
At the Sign In dialog box, I enter my Apple ID and Password, and click Sign In. It comes back with "There was an error connecting to the Apple ID server" in red.
I've turned off IPS and Web Filter to no avail.
I've put iCloud.com and apple.com in the Web Filter Whitelist anyway, but it makes no difference.
is the SSL browser indicator for https://www.icloud.com green or red? There have been MITM issues with SSL decryption by Shield that could cause this problem.
do you have any log items in the kernel log / system log / Snort log that matches these events?
It's green. I can access iCloud through the web no problems. It's applications like iBooks, iTunes, Photos, etc that say they can't access the Apple servers. I've turned off IPS, but still nothing. Do I have to press 'Save & Apply' after doing this? If I do it seems to turn it back on.
SSL indicator for https://www.icloud.com is green for me too, and I'm having similar issues in that iTunes for Windows 10 can't access the iTunes Store or program updates. But the store is accessible from iOS devices and app updates seem to run okay.

Do I just put 116:58:1 in the Exclude Rules tab and press Save & Apply?
From other replies here, I think 2017005 is the number to try within the Exclude Rules tab, assuming Suricata rule IDs match Snort rule IDs..
Can anyone confirm?
