        Firewalk requires Libnet 1.1.0 to be compiled. It doesn't accept any
version greater than that. Nemesis is another tool that falls into the same
problem (it requires Libnet 1.0.2a).
        Currently there are two versions of Libnet, one hosted at
http://www.packetfactory.net/Projects/Libnet and another one hosted at
http://libnet.sourceforge.net. In this case you need to get the first one.
        Best regards,

Hi Steve;

Thanks for your advice.

I am a verrry greeeen *ix person :-(  I have installed libnet at the \root 
of SuSE linux.  However, when I am trying to install Firewalk 5.0 using 
/configure.  It reported that it could not find Libnet 1.1.0.

I realize that it is a Linux question,  I am hoping a fellow subscriber 
could shed light on it.

Firewalk would probably be a better tool to look at

hping2 is a feature rich utility.  However it is new to me.  Could you some 
please tell me which syntax(es) could I do to test our firewall externally?

I am trying to use HPING to find out the firewall which nmap and nessus
could not find.

The nmap syntax is nmap -v -sT sV -P0 -O.

Any suggestions/comments/advise are much appreciated.

Many thanks!
