I am aware of the pakistani project - and I read it before I posted here ;)
One of the things that probably confused me more than anything was their
diagrams or rather screenshots. They showed vmware settings, the same way as
I have them - first network card bridged, second bridged, third was host
only. With honeywall's automatic setup this meant that eth0 and eth1 both
were "bridges" with no IP, and a host only for remote management access ...
According to your words I simply changed the settings in vmware now, making
the second network card entry to host only (so that the inner side of the
bridge points to host only), and the third one to bridged - finally i was
able to access my remote managemt ;-)
Due to the host only address though the honeypot is not able to access the
internet currently (host only being in the 192.168.40.0/24, the host and
remote interface being in 192.168.2.0/24). Do I really have to use ICS to
allow the host only network to access the internet? Or would it be possible
to set both - eth1 of the honeywall and the honeypots themselves to bridged
You said that the IP/Subnet of the honeypots shoudl be like the same of the
network the wall is connected to - that'd mean the host I take. This would
require the honeypot being in the subnet 192.168.2.0/24 - which would not
match the "host only" anymore.
As for the malicious traffic: as soon as I have the wall running properly
i'll switch my NAT router to modem only functionality, using dial up for
access internet - that way I might be able to get some unwanted pings ... or
so I hope :)
Another stupid question: What IP do I have to set the "sebek server" to? the
IP for the remote interface (192.168.2.20)? Eth0 and eth1 do not have an IP,
yet - as far as I understood , the deamon for logging works on the wall.
Concerning the PATH issue: I am running roo-1.0.hw-189.iso. Neither roo (you
cant login with root) nor root set the PATH properly for me. I have to do it
manually so far with the export command.
thanks already in advance. I know it's some rather dull and boring questions
