user@machine:~$ ./pads -h pads - Passive Asset Detection System v1.2 - 06/17/05 Matt Shelton <email@example.com> Usage: -c <file> : Read configuration from <file>. -d <file> : Dump banner packets to a libpcap formatted file. -D : Run PADS in the background (daemon mode). -g <group> : Drop privileges to this group. -h : Help -i <interface> : Listen on <interface>. The lowest number interface will be used if an interface isn't specified. -n <network> : Reads in a comma seperated list of networks to be monitored. ex. -n "192.168.0.0/24,10.0.0.0/16" -p <file> : PID file used with daemon mode. -r <file> : Read packets from a libpcap formatted file. -u <user> : Drop privileges to this user. -v : Verbose -V : Version -w <file> : Dump data into file other than assets.csv. Additional arguments will be processed as a libpcap filter. For example, the following command will not only use interface hme1 but will also only search for assets on port 22: pads -i hme1 port 22
