[Snort-users] Forcing an interface into promis mode at bootup

This is from a prior post a while back...


All I have (personally) is a line in /etc/rc.d/rc.local that says:

/sbin/ifconfig eth1 up promisc

considering eth1 as the 'snorting' card.

I know this is more of a Linux question, but my application is on my Linux
box running snort as a NIDS.  How do you configure an interface (eth0) to be
in proisc mode during the execution of the network script at bootup.  I have
set the eth0 to be a black interface and would like it to be in promisc mode
on boot so that I don't have to shell in and type the command every time it
reboots.  Thanks in advance.
