Run Snort like:  

	snort -W  

see the list of Windows interfaces:  

-*> Snort! <*-
Version 1.8.7beta5-ODBC-MySQL-WIN32 (Build 130)
By Martin Roesch (roesch at ...1935..., www.snort.org)
1.7-WIN32 Port By Michael Davis (mike at ...92...,
1.8-WIN32 Port By Chris Reid (chris.reid at ...3029...)
          (based on code from 1.7 port)

Interface       Device          Description
1 \Device\Packet_{9AC501B5-EBBF-4B2E-918F-9E3C8F93480F} (FE575 Ethernet
2 \Device\Packet_NdisWanIp (NdisWan Adapter)

Then launch Snort using '-i n' where 'n' is the interface you want Snort to

Hello snort users,

I've just started using snort and find this application really amazing.

At this time I have 3 network cards on my Windows system, however I'd like
to monitor traffic only using one of them.

How can I specify names for network cards under windows ./snort -i ???

I've seen how it's done under *nix systems but couldn't find much about

thanks for any input.
