As I told you I am very much new to Linux and I don't know much about Linux and HoneyD. I read details about honeyd.
We have Centos 5.0 images in our lab and I am running it on Virtual PC.
I have no idea about these questions which you asked.
Which kernel version?
- Which installation instructions? (locations)
- Which Honeyd version and from where?
- What errors? (Post exact error messages)
What I will do is I will follow readme file of the link which KNUDFL mentioned and if i have problem i will ask you guys. Please I have 2 months for this project and I have to do it. I will be really greatful if you guys guide me. Feel free to suggest.
My project details are
.-Investigate honeypot software (Honeyd)
.-create and implement scripts for emulating wide variety of servers, hosts and hardware.
.-develop logging software which records the IP addresses of attackers.
.-develop reporting software for informing system administrators of attacks.
Please comment what are the views on this project.
I am willing to learn and trying to install honeyd but uptill now no success. Just need support and guidance. Thanks in advance.
cd honeyd/ && autoreconf -vfi && ./configure && make ; su ; make install
The above is all it takes.
The honeyd/ folder is inside the honeyd-read-only/ in /home/<name>/
You will of course first have to install the prerequisites :
1) su ,
2) yum install subversion libpcap-devel libevent-devel libdnet-devel
I couldnt find read only file in honeyd folder.
These are the only files I can see in honeyd folder
And can you confirm pre-requisite means
These Library files I have to Install?
I am doing my work on VMWare with Centos 5 images. Can you please guide me as a beginer. I know I sound frustrating and annoying but I am new to this and I hope these forum users can guide me with this installation.
Thanks a lot in advance. I am really sorry to sound annoying but I hope you understand my situation.
Thanks for your help . Today I followed step by step which you told and saw something happening. But at the end this message came.. Can you please help what is this
configure: error : dnet-config not found
I entered my admin password and it comes out to command prompt. Let me tell you also Honeyd folder is created automatically on my Virtual Desktop on which I am running centos.
Can you please guide me how to install arpd in it? and how can test honeyd?
Thanks for your help, now i feel something is going on and sorry for replying late as I was busy with my other assignments and test.
