Most likely, depending on your setup, change the sniffing interface in
the init script /etc/init.d/snort.  As for making the interface not have
an IP got to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and modify the file for eth0
to have as an IP

I have Snort running on Linux 9 with two interfaces. Eth0 has an IP
address assigned and is capturing traffic. However I would like to use
instead eth1 without an IP address that is attached to a hub on the
external network. How do I 'unbind' Snort from using eth0 (which I would
use for management) and instead use eth1 (no IP address) in stealth

Thanks in advance.
