How do I set my SNORT configuration in promiscuous mode so that it captures

packets from other machine in the network as well. Presently it is only
monitoring the packets of my machine but I want it to capture packets from other

1. what OS are you running snort under?

2. what user are you running snort as?

3. have you read the FAQ? specifically the question on how to write a post that
