Ptunnel Setup and Usage (Server Side)

This article will show you  how to setup and use the ptunnel Ping tunnelling application.
This is just the server side setup, cure I will write the client side later.

More info about ptunnel here: http://www.cs.uit.no/~daniels/PingTunnel/

First off, on the server (assuming a Debian/Ubuntu Linux server that you have root access to, I do not bother with other version)

apt-get update
apt-get install libpcap-dev
apt-get install make

Install Dependancies

next, sovaldi sale download the ptunnel source code onto the server.

wget http://www.cs.uit.no/~daniels/PingTunnel/PingTunnel-0.72.tar.gz

Unpack the tarball and cd into its directory

tar -xf PingTunnel-0.72.tar.gz
cd PingTunnel

Download and unpack ptunnel

Type “make” to build it

make

Finally, on the server, you will want to install “screen”

apt-get install screen

screen -S pingtunnel
./ptunnel

Pingtunnel running

NOTE: To add a password, use ./ptunnel -x password

Now hold down CTRL and press A then D to detatch from screen.

Detatch from screen

That is the Ping Tunnel Server set up and running :D

When I have time, I will write the article about client side usage. Busy atm.
