I don't define my ids ports in my interfaces file at all, just my
access interface. I just bring up my IDS interfaces as needed in my
snort start up script with ifconfig eth1 up promisc.
This is the way I do it on all my debian based snort boxes. Eth0 is my
access port and up to 3 nic cards are brought up manually as needed.
There may be a better way but it's the way it do it, at leaswt until I
can find a better way. My interfaces file looks like this on all my
iface lo inet loopback
auto eth0 inet static
