Trouble installing sniffit


(OS) RH 7.3
I compile this program and do ./ configure then make and it says it compiled succesfully but I can't get it to run?

Youve probably given up on installing sniffit now but in case any one stumbles upon this question as I have then heres you answer.
Sniffit does not need to be compiled with 'make install'. Executing 'make' is enough to generate the file you can run called 'sniffit'. You can run it by typing './sniffit' in the directory you compiled it in with whatever options you wish included in the README.

Enjoy.

Hmm. Thats alright, some newbie might stumble upon the same problem and now find the solution. Had any luck with dsniff? No matter what combination or variation of packages/sources I install there are always errors.
