arpwatch 2.1

Announcements of packages that are now released.

Postby tom » Tue Jan 06, 2004 8:29 pm

I compiled and packaged arpwatch 2.1 for Freesco 03x

I haven't submitted it to Freescosoft.com until it's tested more. Please post any comments or feedback.

pkg -i <a href='ftp://toms.homelinux.org/packages/03x/arpwatch_2.1_tom' target='_blank'>ftp://toms.homelinux.org/packages/03x/arpwatch_2.1_tom</a>

arpwatch cannot prevent arp poisoning but is intended to let you keep track of which IP is tied to what MAC address and will let you know if or when this changes.

Look in:

/var/messages (system log)

and:

/pkg/usr/local/arpwatch/arp.dat

for this information

The text version of the man page is in:

/pkg/usr/local/arpwatch/arp.txt

By default I set arpwatch to listen on eth1 but that can be changed in rc_arpwatch.

have fun,

Tom

wow! at last. I was looking for this module for a long time. My messages in thiss forum about ARP Spoofing were completely ignored. What is the status of this module? I mean is it still in development? I'll try it today evening...

Does this package watch the arp all the time,
or only when called on ?

gonza,

Since I made this package after your post, I guess you can't say that your post was completely ignored. I haven't had very much feedback on this package so pm me if you see anything that should be changed.

Thasaidon,

This package runs all the time and writes info/warnings to the system log.

Sorry, My DynDNS wasn't up to date. You should be able to access it in a minute or so.

It doesn't really "poll" anything. It listens for arp packets on whatever interface you specify.

<a href='http://olympus.het.brown.edu/cgi-bin/man2html?arpwatch+8' target='_blank'>Here's</a> the manpage for arpwatch.

Thasaidon,

You're very welcome. I hope you can make use of this package.

Since this is only an announcement section, lets help Howler keep the forums organized and direct any other questions/comments about this package to the "Third party package support" section. (or PM me)

The package IS still available but I'm having trouble with my FTP lately. PM me if you're still having trouble and want me to E-Mail it to you. Hopefully, I'll get this problem resolved soon.

Thanks Tom, got it running already. BTW, is it possible to configure it to watch 2 or more networks?

I think this thread is long enough for an announcement. Please start a new thread in 3rd party package support if needed.
I will close this one for now.
