I'm going to have a go at porting perl5 tonight - I'll let everyone know
how it goes.
One thing bothers me. I can run SATAN locally to test my own network,
but I have no capability to run it remotely. The only other network
that I have sufficient access to is not very well connected (all access
to the Internet is via a 9600bps SLIP link on a proxy gateway - the
gateway doesn't have the resources to run it, and it'd be painfully slow
besides). I don't know how effective this tool will be running "on the
inside". The only other options I have for running it personally are on
systems with sysadmins that I do not fully trust.
I'd like to enlist the help of someone to probe my site - but for
obvious reasons, it must be someone trustworthy.
What's a sysadmin to do? :)
