ACL support


I may have posted this query before on other forum but havent recd any reply..... so i am rephrasing it and posing it to all.....

I'm trying to simulate Firewalk (if anyone has used it it would be gr8 help), which uses libpcap, libnet & libdnet.....

For those who dont know, Firewalk is a tool built to enumerate the access control list of the target gateway,

I'm working on simple system which is in a network using RedHat 9.....

When i try to run Firewalk on this system it gives foll o/p:

Firewalk 5.0 [gateway ACL scanner]
fw_init_network(): route_get()
Total packets sent:                0
Total packet errors:               0
Total packets caught               0
Total packets caught of interest   0
Total ports scanned                0
Total ports open:                  0
Total ports unknown:               0
When i went thru release notes of RedHat 9 it states that it doesn't provide ACL support but provides the packages attr & acl for ACL testing....

Someone suggested I use Fedora Core 3....

I'm very confused as to what to use..... and what is the right thing to do?

Please help as it's very urgent...... Thanks

You're mixing two different types of ACLs (Acces Control Lists)

-) Firewalk deals with network scanning (ACL on firewall)

-) attr & acl deal with file system permissions and ACLs
