IP protocols logger

writes information about incoming ICMP messages, TCP connections and UDP datagrams to syslog.

It is highly configurable and has a built-in DNS cache.

Please note that upstream is rather inactive lately (no release since 2001), and that there are some rather nasty bugs.

An incomplete list of the bugs includes:

  - random packets don't get logged sometimes
  - stops logging at all after some weeks
  - ipv6 never got implemented
  - documentation is out of sync.

Trying to fix these bugs is not easy. Please do not expect the Debian maintainer to do this, but patches are appreciated.

Please consider using a fully-grown intrusion detection system (like snort) instead of ippl.
