I downloaded and compiled honeyd. I modified the config.example file to match the ip scheme that is on my network, and made a log file to write to. If I run ps -ef | grep honeyd I get
nobody 2505   1  0  14:37 ?    00:00:00 /usr/local/bin/honeyd -f /honey/honey-1.5c/honeyd.conf -l /loghoney/log
So does thing mean honeyd is working? I read somewhere that you should be able to ping the virtual machines, and in my honey.conf file one of the addresses is, but I can't ping it. Is there a way to test honeyd?
