./net/lft, Layer four traceroute capable of tracing protocol paths

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.73, Package name: lft-3.73, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

LFT, short for Layer Four Traceroute, is a sort of 'traceroute' that
often works much faster (than the commonly-used Van Jacobson method)
and goes through many configurations of packet-filter based firewalls.
More importantly, LFT implements numerous other features including AS
number lookups, loose source routing, netblock name lookups, et al.

Log message:
Update net/lft to 3.31.

pkgsrc changes:
- Add LICENSE (lft-license)

Upstream changes:

lft 3.31 / WhoB 3.5
----------------------
- Added #define for AI_NUMERICSERV undeclared on some platforms/versions
- No other changes

lft 3.3 / WhoB 3.5
----------------------
- Improved LFT target detection behind firewalls
- Updated LFT for newer pcap version defaults
- WhoB ignores comments [#,;] in input files
- Added LFT option -f to specify fake source address
- Applied many, many, many fixes from Juli M. of USA -- Thanks!
- Applied many, many, many fixes from Markus Gothe of Sweden -- Thanks!

lft 3.2 / WhoB 3.2
----------------------
- Added support for 802.1q tagged VLANs
- Manual page corrections (thanks to Brett)
- WhoB will use Prefix WhoIs for bulk file resolution in
  Cymru-compatible format with '-c' but Cymru will be used
  with '-C'

lft 3.1 / WhoB 3.1
----------------------
- New configure options:
  --enable-gtod Forces LFT to use gettimeofday() on each packet instead of
  using the BPF timestamp. This is critical on platforms that have enabled
  'fastts' or that do not have high-precision BPF timestamping.
  --enable-universal generates binaries including both PPC and Intel architecture
  (for users running Mac OS X/Darwin)
- Improved compatibility with NetBSD and Darwin/Mac OS X
- Added autoconf support for NetBSD
- Improved compatibility with older compilers (thanks to Sean)
- Updated autoconf bits and pieces
- By popular request, reversed the -g option of WhoB
  WhoB now uses gigo mode by default unless -g is specified which turns
  ON its parser and enables the other various options

lft 3.0
----------------------
- Completely refactored and now a workable library
- LFT has a new (-b) TCP Basic trace method that makes TCP traces NAT-friendly
- LFT has a new (-p) ICMP trace method that uses echo requests to trace paths
- Many memory issues fixed
- Cleanup of several 2.6b5-3.0b features

lft 2.6 / WhoB 2.0
----------------------
- LFT prints 'open' in the target block if the target dest port is open
- LFT indicates the reason it marked ports open/closed in verbose(2) output
- LFT prints an asterisk when it retransmits a packet after a timeout
- LFT uses Prefix WhoIs (bulk) or RISWHOIS (bulk) for netname resolution
- LFT has a new (-u) traditional UDP-based tracing feature
- LFT displays start and finish times/dates when using the (-T) option
- LFT has a new (-U) feature to display all times in UTC/GMT0
- LFT only shows time spent tracing/resolving at verbosity level 1 or higher
- LFT sets the ToS bit on outgoing IP datagrams when (-I) option is used
- LFT gets timevals from packets instead of calling gettimeofday()
- LFT won't be fooled into thinking there's a firewall on a gateway just
  because adaptive mode ups the state waiting for replies that never come
- Improved LFT performance (removed gettimeofday() on each packet)
- WhoB/library uses Prefix WhoIs to resolve OrgNames and NetNames
- WhoB/library has improved support for RIPE NCC RIS and Prefix WhoIs
- WhoB supports bulk resolution (-f option) from an input file
- WhoB also supports one-per-line output (-cf option) from a bulk input file
- WhoB will use putenv() on Solaris who is missing setenv() to set TZ
- WhoB has a new (-g) feature to take input directly from the command line
  and print output directly from Prefix WhoIs (referred to as GIGO)
- Added $DESTDIR support to Makefile (thanks Daniel)
- Fixed an off-by-one bug in LFT related to ASN display encountered when
  a trace contains one or more neglected TTLs
- Numerous platform-specific improvements
- Reconfigured autoconf and segregated ./config/
- Updated autoconf components to v2.59

lft 2.5 / WhoB 1.5
----------------------
- Inclusive of betas 2.32 to 2.4x
- Added -z option to pseudo-randomize source port
- Added behavior to automatically select the most appropriate interface
  based on routing (this was on the most wanted list)
- Improved OpenBSD compatibility (IP length nonzero)
- OpenBSD is now detected by autoconf (for configuring the above)
- Darwin is now detected by autoconf and its definition disables
  some BSD features to make it compatible with MacOS X and Darwin
- LFT now indicates it has reached the target by printing a 'T'
  character in the status display (if status is enabled)
- Cleanups were made to the verbose output levels (-VVV)
- Significantly revamped whois framework makes it easy to include
  whois functionality into other programs
- Added -C and -R and -r options to force alternate ASN sources:
    - (r)IPE RIS - special thanks to Rene Wilhelm @ RIPE NCC
    - (C)ymru
    - (R)ADB
- Default ASN source (-A) is now Prefix WhoIs (see pwhois.org)
- LFT now queries for ASNs in bulk format after completing
  a trace if pwhois (default), RIPE NCC RIS, or Cymru is selected
- Added dst/src port autoselection based on user-supplied hostname
- Vastly improved standalone whois client "whob" see whob.8 (whob manpage)
- Makefile now installs 'whob' no-frills whois client (try ./whob)
- "Smart" mode is now referred to as "Adaptive" mode (-E)

lft 2.31
--------------------
- Fixed time precision on FreeBSD 5.3 (Thanks to Kurt Jaeger)

lft 2.3:
--------------------
- added WSAIoctl() call to select proper IF on windows based on dest (thanks Graham!)
- lowered max_retries to a default of 2
- cleaned up formatting related to -S option
- cleaned up verbose output to be more friendly
- cleaned up error messages
- updated manpage
- updated spec file

Log message:
Point MAINTAINER to pkgsrc-users@NetBSD.org in the case where no
developer is officially maintaining the package.

The rationale for changing this from "tech-pkg" to \ 
"pkgsrc-users" is
that it implies that any user can try to maintain the package (by
submitting patches to the mailing list).  Since the folks most likely
to care about the package are the folks that want to use it or are
already using it, this would leverage the energy of users who aren't
developers.
