View Full Version : [ubuntu] Compiling Net::Packet to test for vulnerabilitites

February 3rd, 2010, 08:30 PM
I have been attempting to compile the Net::Packet perl modules to use to create crafted packets to test for vulnerabilities and have not been able to get one of the dependencies compiled libdnet under Ubuntu 9.10. I was wondering if anyone has had success with compiling it.

Not being a programmer has not helped me either.

Thanks and regards.

I use cpan to install perl modules, Have a look here (http://www.livejournal.com/doc/server/lj.install.perl_setup.modules.html) scroll down to Using cpan.

Cpan should be installed by default.

Yep tried that before posting. All my efforts have ended in failure to get Net::Packet working mostly due to it not being able to find Libdnet. the perl install of Net::Libdnet fails as it can not find the libdnet library.

Thanks for your reply.....

Really frustrated

Have a look at SevenMachines' post in this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=8769070), it may help solve the problem.
