This is a good idea. I have also written a similar tool, although mine
logs all syn packets. It uses the libpcap interface. Should compile under
linux, freebsd, irix, sunos, solaris, etc. It is available at

included with the distribution).

Well, while we're on the subject..

I've written a perl script to do a similar task-- mine logs all SYN
packets (although you can exclude data destined for a particular port;
I exclude port 80 and 113 as they generate so much traffic) as well
as logging portscans.

It requires tcpdump and a little bit of hacking to get it to work
on your particular subnet, but it doesn't chew alot of CPU time --
unless, of course, someone is doing a portscan :-)

You can find it at http://www.nbs.nau.edu/~jwa/Security/synsniff.tar.gz
Comments/suggestions about how to improve it are welcome.
