Document Actions
Rogue Detect sends DHCPDISCOVER packets to the network and listens for DHCP servers to respond. It can run continuously as a daemon, or do a single probe and quit. It's written in Perl and can be easily extended to take any action you can think of in response to an unknown DHCP server (send pages, disable them or whatever).

  • Jan 20, 2006 - I released a new version which i'm tagging 1.0 because it has been cleaned up a lot, and has been tested for quite some time on ResNet. This version includes most of the 3rd party patches that were here before, also.
