For those using Snort on windows platforms, how do you
specify the interface on which to sniff packets?

With Snort on windows, you can use the -W command line
option to query the list of interfaces and then there are
options for starting Snort.

Using -i with the interface number (index) from the -W output

-i <num>

OR using -i with the device name

-i \Device\NPF_<uuid>


No -i on command line and let Snort select the first interface
that WinPcap finds.
