I'm trying to learn spoofing techniques and i'm trying to determine the MAC address of the host. I've got an understanding for networks etc etc. Now when i ping the host i run tcpdump + Wireshark with it only shows the MAC address of my access point (Which is understandable). But how do i determine a MAC address when i'm behind a gateway?
Yeah i can understand the NAT being the problem as it does hide the actually IP address behind a gateway address. Well thanks anyways :-D.
I shall do tht when i get paid next :-D. I do know networks and crap. But it makes me think why there're so many new spoofing programs out there when a LAN behind a NAT is standard nowadays. Interesting stuff tho :-D
Didnt think it was tht long ago tht they introduce NAT into routers. Yea i can understand tht i.e having a gateway address then having other computers on the LAN connected to tht gateway. Jus imagine what would happen if tht wasn't introduce.lol. I wouldn't be able to send this msg as we wud be fighting for our ip address.lol. Hence IPv6 will sort out the problem but IPv4 will still be going :-D. Thanks streaker69 it's good tht people know their stuff
Interesting stuff firewalls are :-D, i have such an interest in firewalls and security in general. I going to uni next year to study computer science and i'm hoping by the age of 30 i get the chance to work within the computer security sector. I'm only 21 and i'm studying C and ASM in my own time aswell as linux systems.I'm into the whole computer security business as i love to learn it not thinking HA i can cripple a web server but more in the lines of i know how to cripple a web server and i know how to secure it. Hence me trying to learn as much as i can.
