Bug#138731: RFP: mnwclient -- Client for reporting network abuse to MyNetWatchman.com

Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2002-03-17
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : mnwclient
  Version         : 1.11
  Upstream Author : Chad Wagner <wagnerch@bellsouth.net>
* URL             : http://www.mynetwatchman.com/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : Client for reporting network abuse to MyNetWatchman.com

MyNetWatchman is a service that collects information about network
abuse.  Incidents are sorted by source IP, and when enough attacks on
several targets from one IP have been reported, the ISP responsible for
that IP is notified via e-mail.

This is the client that collects data on your firewall and forwards it
to mynetwatchman.com.

Notes to potential packagers:  The daemon is a Perl script.  It may
require either some porting or an older version of Perl (than 5.6 which
is currently in Testing).  The SysV init script included is Redhat
specific as well and will need porting or re-writing.  A man page is

Due to some kind of Perl problems, I have not been able to get it
running; it crashes with Perl giving me an error that I could probably
understand if I knew any Perl :-(.

The daemon is GPL, and the service is "free for individual use".  To be
able to use it you must first register at
"http://www.mynetwatchman.com/myNetwatchman/register.asp";.  Thus, the
Debian package should possibly go into contrib.
