Re: [NSE] isakmp aggressive mode and version detection

Hi David,

Thanks for testing. 

I'm sorry that I didn't include instructions for the script and files. I've tried to follow the convention currently 
used for file locations, which means that the script assumes that the files 'ike.lua' and 'ike-fingerprints.lua' are 
placed in 'nmap/nselib/' and 'nmap/nselib/data/', respectively. I think the error you are seeing is a consequence of 
'ike-fingerprints.lua' not being found and loaded correctly. 

In my testing I've used the following syntax:

# nmap --script=ike-version -p500 -sUV --version-intensity=0 -dd TARGET

The script uses the same port as the an isakmp service is listening on (UDP port 500) for socket:bind, so running a 
isakmp service on localhost could be causing some issues ? This can be changed in line 332 in 'ike.lua'.

Does this help ?

- Jesper

I've debugged and enhanced this script, so it should be more robust and

I'm getting this error against a dummy Ncat listener:
$ sudo ncat -l --udp 500 -k --sh-exec "cat > /dev/null"
$ sudo ./nmap -p 500 -sU localhost --script=ike-version -d

I seem to get the same error when I try to install an IKE listener to
test against. I tried the Debian packages strongswan-ikev1 (pluto) and
strongswan-ikev2 (charon), and netstat says they are listening on port
500, but I get the same error as above. What do you recommend testing
