In the machine I use for sniffinf, there are 7 interfaces. I would like to know whether I can create a short-name for each of those, so that when I want to capture on a specific interface I can select it through short name?

Thanks, Ram.

Go to preferences, capture and press the Edit button for Interfaces. Now add a comment to each device you have. This will show up before the device name in the capture options dialog.
