Hello,
 
I guessing from your message that you would like to specify a certain
NIC to place your sensor on. You can use the –W switch to list your
installed interfaces and the –I switch to tell Snort which interface to
read from.

\Device\Packet_NdisWanIp" problem
 

hello,

I cannot get started with Snort!  I am on a Windows2000.
There are no messages from the beast:

C:\Program Files\Sourcefire\Snort-1.8.2>snort -v
Log directory = log
        --== Initializing Snort ==--
Initializing Network Interface \
Checking PID path...
PID stat checked out ok, PID set to C:\Program
Files\Sourcefire\Snort-1.8.2     
Writing PID file to "C:\Program Files\Sourcefire\Snort-1.8.2"  
Decoding Ethernet on interface \Device\Packet_NdisWanIp     
... 
and then nothing!

I wonder where is this interface information coming from: " interface
\Device\Packet_NdisWanIp " ?
I am at the same time running successfuly Ethereal from the same box --
however I
have the choice of 2 interfaces there:
-- if I choose \Device\Packet_NdisWanIp     I get nothing, as with snort
-- if I choose \Device\Packet_{452B97B2-...} Ethereal runs OK.

Is there any way of configuring this? I don't see anything in
snort.conf.
