    When you fire off snort, use the flag -i to select the device name. You can also go into your snort.conf and search for the string 'database'. It will give you a few 'suggestions' for options, usually to a mysql database. You could then use something like stunnel to send the encrypted database entries to a central mysql server.

    There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.

    In addition, if you have not done so already, unbind the IP stack from the "sniffing" adaptor to prevent the box from being detected on your network. The only interface that should have an IP on an IDS box is the management interface.

    I dont know what OS you are running, but if in linux(particularly red hat 7+) the document at the following link should be very helpful. Even if not running redhat, you can probably still get a lot of info from it.
