Use Snort -W to get a list of adapters. Say you only have one adapter,
so it should show your adapter in location 1. CD to your snort folder
and type Snort -v -i1 and that will allow snort to sniff on adapter 1.
After doing this you should see all kinds of traffic in the command
window, if not go to your browser and generate some traffic.
Let me know how things go.

Subject: ERROR: OpenPcap
I am trying to install snort from your documentation. Upon testing to
make sure it is working I get an error.
The test I am running is
Snort -c C:\snort\Snort.conf -l C:\Program Files\Apache
where is x = 1
The snort -v -x1 works fine as far as I can tell.
The error I get on the fist is as fallows
C:\Snort\Snort -c C:\snort\Snort.conf -l C:\Program Files\Apache
log directory = C:\Program
Initializing Network Interface \
ERROR: OpenPcap() FSM compilation failed:
PCAP command: Files\Apache Group\Apache\htdocs\logs -i2
Fatal Error, quitting..
Thanks for your help in this.
