[Snort-users] Snort and Suse 8.2

Because of setting up Suse 8.2 for Snort I want to set one of the
ethernet-interfaces in promiscuous mode. Which is not the problem ;-)

The problem is I want to setup this ethernet-interface without an
ip-address.

Setting up with an ip-address causes snort changes var HOME_NET into $eth0_ADDRESS when I changed it to particular address ranges or even to any.

==========================================================================

Using Suse 7.2 this was very easy using /etc/rc.config:
#
IPADDR_0=""
#
NETDEV_0="eth0"
#
IFCONFIG_0="up"
#

==========================================================================

Now I have to use /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0:
BOOTPROTO='static' # dhcp or static, none (and bootp) are not
supported
BROADCAST=''
IPADDR=''
MTU=''
NETMASK=''
NETWORK=''
REMOTE_IPADDR=''
STARTMODE='onboot'
UNIQUE=unique number
WIRELESS='no'

==========================================================================


Please advise,
Xantos
