Projects / Rogue Detect

Rogue Detect

Rogue Detect sends DHCPDISCOVER packets to the network and listens for DHCP servers to respond. It can run continuously as a daemon, or do a single probe and quit. It's written in Perl and can be easily extended to take any action you can think of in response to an unknown DHCP server (send pages, disable them, etc).

Recent releases

    Release Notes: This release fixes a serious logic issue which resulted in roguedetect having trouble detecting two DHCP offers which were within 1/10th of a second of each other.

      Release Notes: This release separates out all of the configuration options from the Perl script and puts them into roguedetect.cfg. This should make it easier for users to upgrade in the future and maintain their installation without having to reconfigure constantly. This release also adds automatic detection of your local hardware addresses, making it easier to move between boxes.

        •  25 Mar 2004 07:06
