Once again i'd reccomend Kismet as it can capture the ip address and you can compare it to the mac address(which will never change unless you change it with a tool like macchanger) however as long as you stay connected your IP address will not change unless you disconnect and then reconnect.

Actually, ISPs over the world has a regular process of harvesting and re-issuing public IP (WAN) addresses contiunually each and every day. My private IP (LAN) never changes as you mentioned. I'm concerned about my Public IP address only and want to log it in my Puppy distro.

Last question: Your feelings about the usefulness of NMAP and ZENMAP? neither of which is included in PUPs.

Thanks in advance.

@gcmartin

My bad I missed the "public IP" part there I thought u said private IP, I gotta read over posts more carefully. NMAP can technically be used to monitor your public ip but I wouldn't recommend it, if you want to monitor your public IP for changes I would recommend using IP Monitor. And I believe The only reason I never posted a pet of nmap was that someone else beat me to it I believe it may have been ttuuxxx but it was part of another thread and not in it's own.

Edit: found the thread I was thinking of, it was ettercap he posted not nmap so if anyone wants it posted let me know.

App still doesn't launch from menu or console:

Code:
# wireshark
wireshark: error while loading shared libraries: libgcrypt.so.11: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
#


After installing pet and reboot.

Wow can't believe Wary is missing all these dependencies, sorry I don't use Wary so I was unaware of all the missing files, I've had to compile dependencies for people using Wary and Quirky for other programs I made into pets too, will put together a new pet for libgcrypt.

Edit: Added libgcrypt pet in first post.

Looks like there's more than a couple missing from 5.1.1.56!

Righto Dpup that sounds like a good plan.

@ stiginge

Ok so i've come to a conclusion that my Wireshark pet will not work for Wary users and Quirky users most likely at all due to different versions of GLIBC being installed, being that wireshark is compiled on lupu with GLIBC-2.11 it will not work on Wary at all even if all the other dependencies are found and installed, sorry but you are gonna have to get someone to compile Wireshark in Wary, I tried to compile it in Wary but was getting too many errors and gave up after half an hour.

I used
Code:
./configure CFLAGS="-mtune=generic -fomit-frame-pointer" CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}" --prefix=/usr
and it configured fine however when I tried running the make file was when I was running into problems, kept giving me different errors, I tried modifying the makefile to no avail, as I said it would probably take someone who is used to compiling in Wary to do it as I am not very familiar with how Wary works or the different dependencies it requires as I've always stayed away from it.

I would be interested in a link.

How difficult would you think it would be to have a tray item which show Internet Up or down and maybe show Public IP?

For most of us (certainly ALL of us here on the forum), I would have thought that in 20 years someone else (other than us) would have seen a need for this.

Thanks in advance
Edited:
To my knowledge PC usage, for many/most of us, today, centers around a LAN/WAN. And, for years, I am not aware of single desktop tool/tray tool that presents what I would refer to as "intelligent" network awareness. This would have been applicable even on dial-up systems with/without LANs.

Even if there are reasons why we may NOT want general users to see the information, I am not aware of one an administrator would use as a single step to know where you are in the network.

A tray icon would make sense, as it would be ever present. And, I think a well defined tray tool, when mouse overed, could show current/last known IP and tell whether it is up/down.
for example, a color coded tray icon when mouse over could show the following without running involved scripts:
Code:
eth0 192.168.1.12 up
internet 123.431.12.56 down
This is the kind of information we administrators need as a starting point when we address problems. And, this would be done without typing any commands. And, it would also be useful when working with users remotely.
As simple as this seems, there must be a reason it hasn't been address this way.

Just a thought from someone lacking development skills, yet, trying to be helpful.

I don't know why there isn't such a tray tool available however you could request it as a feature for 5.3 or see if someone else would be up to it, as it is I just don't have to time to take on any projects from scratch right now as I explained to you earlier, however I will post up the IP Monitor tool for you, I just have to get it packaged.

Updated wireshark to 1.6.0 in first post. Maybe hopefully this will fix issues people were having with 1.4.6
