Hoping some of you gurus can help me out here... i'm trying to a little bit of study from a book i recently purchased (the unoffical guide to ethical hacking - Ankit Fadia) as i was told that this is the 'bible' for learning stuff... Now, let me be clear here, i am learning this to protect my home server rather than anything else... but back to the point, there is an example in this book that illustrates port scanning, but the example references IOSocket.pm library.. however this isn't installed on my machine nor does a search of synaptic reveal any joy... Does anyone know what perl modules (there are HEAPS of them!!) that i should install to get this library up and running??
