[Snort-users] new to snort - question on networking setup

I am new to snort and would consider myself a novice in Linux so please
pardon the newbie question.


I am currently running Debian and installed Snort and Acidlab via
dselect.  Configured eth1 as the interface I use to install packages,
and also access the box.  I would like to use eth0 as the snort
interface, in fact that is what I setup when I installed everything via


The question is, how do I setup eth0 in my /etc/network/interfaces
section to make sure eth0 is working correctly.


Below is the output of the file


# The first network card - this entry was created during the Debian

Auto eth1

Iface eth1 inet dhcp


# eth0 - used for snort

Don't know what to put here, maybe the same as eth1 ?
