Hi Morgan,

Thanks for the URL. I followed the steps on "Snort 1.8.7 for Windows NT 
Server / 2000 / XP using Apache Webserver and Snortsnarf "

When I was at "Testing Snort" section,

f:\snort>snort -W

Interface 		Device 		Description

f:\snort\snort -v i1
Initializing Network Interface
ERROR: OpenPcap() device open:
         Error opening adapter: The system cannot find the file 

Fatal Error, Quitting..

Im using "Intel 82558-based Integrated Ethernet with Wake On LAN"
