Re: ITP: tcpspy
Besides reduced dependencies, what's the advantage of not using libpcap?
>From what I've seen tcpspy merely parses /proc/net/tcp and filters
stuff according to some rules. There are superior tools which perform
a similar task. I am not telling you not to package it, but there are better
auditing utilities which are not packaged for Debian.
