Package: libnids
Version: N/A; reported 2003-05-09
Severity: wishlist

a new version, 1.17rc1, of libnids is available.

this new version would have been helpful recently as i tried to use dsniff on a 
ppp interface, but wasn't seeing anything because DLT_LINUX_SLL type wasn't 
recognized and ethernet was instead used (by default, though non-beneficially).

i patched 1.16 myself to support DLT_LINUX_SLL (before finding out about the 
new version; DOH!).

seems 1.16 is out of date with recent technology (wireless, vlan) and the 
linux kernel (ppp).


v1.17rc1 Aug 30 2002
- support for libnet-1.1 and --with-libnet=no
- added support for libpcap save files
- finally, DLT_LINUX_SLL is recognized
- removed a horrible assumption on sizeof(pointer); it could result in
  segfault in scan.c
- --enable-shared
- __i386 -> __i386__ || __i386 :(
- support for 802.1Q VLAN
- support for wireless frames (DLT_IEEE802_11)
- got rid of (obsolete) pcap_open_live_new
- bail out if link type is unknown, instead of pretendind it is ethernet
- added a working link to Ptacek-Newsham paper
- %hi -> %hu :)
- align IP header if necessary (should not be)
- improved libraries detection
- mentioned usefulness od setsockopt(...SO_RCVBUF...) on a fast network

thanks for your work on libnids.
