In the /etc/sysconfig/snort file. To my knowledge the DAQ can not use a
bridge interface, just binding the two together. That’s how afpacket is
working for me anyway. It just errors out when trying to use pfring.

#### General Configuration
# Inline? Set to 1 if yes: Else, set to 0

# What interface should snort listen on?  [Pick only 1 of the next 3!]
# This is -i {interface} on the command line
# This is the snort.conf config interface: {interface} directive
