could someone here who can write win32 apps, and someone else who can
write cocoa apps, please volunteer short executables that will try to
spoof a few packets through some well known server, and then report as
to whether the current computer/firewall/cablemodem/isp/core permitted
this or not? isc would be happy to host the server component of this,
as long as source code for the executables is available under a bsd
style copyright, and the executables are released without any fee.
If anyone wants this, I have a unix client and server that does the
basics of the testing Paul's suggesting. I used it to test
for spoofability from a bunch of my nodes, I don't claim it's
something you want to open up to cable users as-is. :)
The code has only been tested on FreeBSD. YMMV. BSD license.
No attempt at real accounting or security. But maybe it'll get
someone off the ground. :) If you have compilation problems,
try ripping out the ltconfig and using automake to install the
right version for your own computer (automake --add-missing).
