Password dictionary attack tool for SMB

The tool is designed as a password dictionary attack tool that targets windows authentication via the SMB protocol. It is really a wrapper script around the 'smbclient' binary, and as a result is dependent on it for its execution.

Firmware for Atmel at76c50x wireless networking chips.

The drivers for these chips in the Linux 2.6.x kernel do not include the firmware; this firmware needs to be loaded by the host on most cards using these chips. This package provides the firmware images which should be automatically loaded as needed by the hotplug system. It also provides a small loader utility which can be used to accomplish the same thing when hotplug is not in use.


Cisco 7200/3600/3725/3745/2600/1700 Router Emulator

Dynamips emulates Cisco 7200/3600/3725/3745/2600/1700 Routers on a traditional PC. You can use dynamips to create labs. It uses IOS Images (which are not part of this package). Of course, this emulator cannot replace a real router. . It is simply a complementary tool to real labs for administrators of Cisco networks or people wanting to pass their CCNA/CCNP/CCIE exams. For a Command Line Interface for dynamips see dynagen or gns3 package.


Common files for IBM 3270 emulators and pr3287

3270-common contains files referenced in other 3270 packages


IBM 3287 printer emulation for telnet sessions to IBM mainframes

pr3287 opens a telnet connection to an IBM mainframe host and emulates an IBM 3287 printer. . pr3278 implements RFCs 2355 (TN3270E), 1576 (TN3270), and 1646 (LU name selection).


X11 program for telnet sessions to IBM mainframes

x3270 opens a telnet connection to an IBM mainframe host in an X11 window. It can also connect to an IBM AS/400 as a 5250 terminal using the AS/400's 3270 emulation. The window created by x3270 can use its own font for displaying characters, so it is a fairly accurate representation of an IBM 3278 or 3279. . x3270 is similar to tn3270(1) and c3270(1) except that it is X-based, not curses-based. . x3270 implements RFCs 2355 (TN3270E), 1576 (TN3270), and 1646 (LU name selection), and supports IND$FILE file transfer. . You will need to install x3270-fonts locally, or on your font-server - they are required.


Program for scripted telnet sessions to IBM mainframes

s3270 opens a telnet connection to an IBM mainframe host, then allows a script to control the host login session. . s3270 implements RFCs 2355 (TN3270E), 1576 (TN3270), and 1646 (LU name selection), and supports IND$FILE file transfer.


Curses program for telnet sessions to IBM mainframes

c3270 opens a telnet connection to an IBM mainframe host in an Xterm window or Virtual Console. It can also connect to an IBM AS/400 as a 5250 terminal using the AS/400's 3270 emulation. . c3270 is similar to tn3270(1), and x3270(1) except that it is curses-based, not X-based. . c3270 implements RFCs 2355 (TN3270E), 1576 (TN3270), and 1646 (LU name selection), and supports IND$FILE file transfer.


Internetwork Routing Protocol Attack Suite

This package contains a collection of programs used for advanced network operations, testing, and debugging. . CDP and the route injectors can be useful in a production network. Several other tools are useful for security and firewall testing. Finally some tools such as netenum are useful for general admin scripting. . Like all powerful tools, it could cause great damage, so be careful. . * cdp - Cisco discovery protocol packet sender * igrp - IGRP route injector * ass - Autonomous system scanner * irdp - IRDP sender * irdpresponder - IRDP responder * itrace - ICMP based traceroute * tctrace - TCP SYN based traceroute * protos - ICMP based port scanner * netmask - Asks for netmask via ICMP * file2cable - Dumps any binary file direct to ethernet * dfkaa - Troubleshoot devices formerly known as Ascend (Pipeline, etc) * netenum - Ping scanner designed for shell scripts * hsrp - HSRP failover tester * icmp_redirect - ICMP redirection system * timestamp - ICMP timestamp requester * dhcpx - DHCP server "exerciser"

Firmware for Marvell's libertas wireless chip series (dummy package)

This package is an empty package that pulls in the firmware-libertas package. It can be safely removed from your system.


Network performance benchmark

Netperf is a benchmark that can be used to measure the performance of many different types of networking. It provides tests for both unidirecitonal throughput, and end-to-end latency. The environments currently measureable by netperf include: * TCP and UDP via BSD Sockets * DLPI * Unix Domain Sockets * IPv6


web server security scanner

Nikto is a pluggable web server and CGI scanner written in Perl, using rfp's LibWhisker to perform fast security or informational checks. . Features: - Easily updatable CSV-format checks database - Output reports in plain text or HTML - Available HTTP versions automatic switching - Generic as well as specific server software checks - SSL support (through libnet-ssleay-perl) - Proxy support (with authentication) - Cookies support


New test TCP program

This program is a much more convenient version of the ttcp program. It uses inetd (or simulates its behaviour) to start off the remote side program which will send/receive data. Both sides measure the time and number of bytes transfered. The local side will print the measures. The format of the output can be specified on the commandline.


console Twitter client

An interactive console text-based command-line Twitter client written in Perl. . This is a fork of ttytter.

install and manage Management Information Base (MIB) files

This package ships the IETF RFCs containing MIB files and a script which extracts them to be used by Simple Network Management libraries. The script can be used to update some MIBs to the latest version or to download extra vendor MIBs. . These MIBs can be useful for programs like wireshark or snmpget to enable them to translating the received information into human readable text.


console Twitter client

A client for the microblogging service Twitter. The difference with other clients is that this is a 100% text-based command line, yet fully functional application. . In interactive mode, it is a fully interactive client with asynchronous background updates and commands. It supports ANSI colour, hashtags and Twitter Search. . From the command line, use it to update your Twitter in shell scripts, from cron, and so on. TTYtter is extensible and you can run it in daemon mode to make your own Twitter bot.
