You don't specify, but I'm guessing you're running some flavor of unix.

What you're instructing Snort to do on your command line is to open an
interface named "any", and it can't find it.  Normally in unix interface
names look something like "le0" or "hme0" ( I run Solaris. ).  Find out
what the interface you wish to monitor is called and substitute its name
for "any" in your command line.
