[Snort-users] Snort with two sniffing interfaces

Either run two instances:

/snort/snort -D -N -i eth0 -c /snort/conf/snort.conf

/snort/snort -D -N -i eth1 -c /snort/conf/snort.conf

 or bond the interfaces:

/snort/snort -D -N -i bond0 -c /snort/conf/snort.conf

Personally I run two instances because I have two logically different environments I am sniffing and want/need to run two different configs; if I didn't have this need I would probably go the bonded route.

So, if you want to use snort to sniff on two interfaces, how do you use the same config file? Is that possible?  Or should I just bond them and make snort listen on the bonded interface?

When I try it like this, I get errors b/c of the .so rules.

/snort/snort -D -N -i eth0 -i eth1 -c /snort/conf/snort.conf
