The perl script in this directory should work on any platform that supports Perl. It does need one additional Perl module called Net::RawIP; this is used to both sniff the unreachables off the wire and create the BCC copies. To do this, take the following steps as root/Administrator on the system that will be running dibs.pl: perl -MCPAN -eshell If you've never used CPAN before, you'll be asked: "Are you ready for manual configuration?" Here you can either answer the individual prompts, or simply answer "no" which causes the CPAN module to work with defaults. When you get a "cpan>" prompt back, run: install Net::RawIP This should download, compile, and install the Net::RawIP module on your system. If there are no errors, you should be able to run dibs.pl now as root/Administrator: perl dibs.pl 188.8.131.52 I have found that on some platforms, Net::RawIP-0.1 does _not_ compile; it fails with the following errors: RawIP.xs: In function `ip_opts_creat': RawIP.xs:444: error: label at end of compound statement RawIP.xs: In function `tcp_opts_creat': RawIP.xs:543: error: label at end of compound statement I have a patch that fixes this at http://www.stearns.org/patches/Net-RawIP-0.1-default-label-patch . I have an RPM with this patch applied at http://www.stearns.org/perl/ Sorry about the headache; I'm hoping the author of the package uploads a new version at some point. Compatibility notes: The script works on: - Redhat Linux - Fedora Core Linux It is believed to have problems on: - Mac OS/X (incomplete ethernet support in Perl) Unknown: - Windows with Activestate Perl - Windows with Cygwin To be fixed: At the moment, the script has a hardcoded interface of "eth0". If you need to change this, please edit the script - I'll do a command line parameter for this soon.
