Re: [vox-tech] network blinken lights experiment

thanks for the ideas--

i found a simple way to do it using ngrep and awk!

ngrep -q -D | awk -f netled.awk > /dev/ttyS0

netled.awk consists of

/:80/ { print 0 }
/:21/ { print 1 }
/:25/ { print 2 }
/:995/ { print 3 }
/:22/ { print 4 }
/192\.168\.10\.60/ {print 5}

seems to work.. however, ngrep doesn't always report the packets as soon as
they occur....need to figure out how to make it more responsive..

here is a quick picture of it in action:
