Well, ok, if you are not interested in using swatch you can delete all the
swatch lines in my snort.multi script.

The only thing you have to do then is to set the variable INTERFACE to hold
all your "snortable" interfaces like in

INTERFACE="eth0 eth1 eth2"

BUT: My script is not yet set up to work with different configs for each
snort instance, although I think this will be changed in a future version.

So you're still on your own if that's what you require ;(

So long,
