> When I manually initiate the monitor (eth1) interface using 'ifconfig
> eth1 up promisc' it shows UP but then goes through the dhcp broadcast
> and NetworkManager wipes out /etc/resolv.conf and the primary
> interface (eth0) loses its default gateway, so I altogether lose
> network connectivity to this box. The eth1 interface then shows a
> 169.254.xx.xx address. Of course, I would prefer no address for the
> snort. I would appreciate any pointers in getting the eth1 monitoring
> interface to come up without destroying the primary network
> parameters. Thanks in advance.
