How would the spoofing program, or its user, be able to tell if it was successful? Unless I'm very confused, the definition of spoofing is that the return packets aren't going to come back to you. I can imagine a packet format where the real source address was in the data, but with no authentication this would itself be subject to abuse. You'd need a little protocol: Volunteer Server real-source-->server <--back to real source with ip to fake, cookie fake-source-->server with cookie <--back to real source with result as a courtesy Doing this from behind a NAT would be difficult. -- Barney Wolff http://www.databus.com/bwresume.pdf I'm available by contract or FT, in the NYC metro area or via the 'Net.
