*nod*nod* Another worthwhile indicator if you are running a subnet in the
'real world' is if you see a sequence of connect attempts to invalid
addresses. A relatively straightforward way to spot this is to configure
your access router to syslog to a machine in your DMZ and to log all
packets that do/don't conform to certain rules.
Is there a program out there which will masquerade as the usual suspects
while collecting data about the intruder?
