    Default BackTrack 4 R2 - Ferret Not Installed

    Can someone please check to see if ferret is installed on a fresh install of BackTrack 4 R2 please.

    I had to apt-get to install. Thanks.

    try using locate and or find.
    See their respective man pages for usage.

    Thanks but I know how to use find. My question was based on the fact that I couldn't find it and that ferret was in the menu. Then when ran from the menu it showed me the following:

    Code:
    [0] /pentest/sniffers/hamster/ferret
    -- FERRET 1.2.0 - 2008 (c) Errata Security
    -- build = Mar 11 2009 17:41:22 (32-bits)
    -- libpcap version 1.0.0
    Usage:
     ferret -i <num>                 (where <num> is an interface to monitor)
     ferret -r <file1> <file2> ...   (where <files> contain captured packets)
     ferret -h                                               (for more help)
    root@bt:/pentest/sniffers/hamster# ferret -i wlan0
    The program 'ferret' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:
    apt-get install ferret
    bash: ferret: command not found
    root@bt:/pentest/sniffers/hamster#
    This lead me to think that maybe something wasn't packaged correctly in BT4 R2. It seemed easier to ask a simple question than do a full reinstall to answer my question but apparently that's what I should have done.

    Ok I can confirm this now.
    Code:
    root@bt:~# cd /pentest/sniffers/hamster/       
    root@bt:/pentest/sniffers/hamster# ls
    favicon.ico  ferret  hamster  hamster.css  hamster.js
    root@bt:/pentest/sniffers/hamster# ./ferret
    The program 'ferret' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:
    apt-get install ferret
    -bash: ferret: command not found
    root@bt:/pentest/sniffers/hamster# apt-get install ferret
