NAME

       ettercap-pkexec - graphical pkexec-based launcher for ettercap

       This  launcher  depends  on  policykit-1  and  the  menu packages, and basically wraps the
       ettercap binary command
       with       a       pkexec       action       script       usually        defined        on
       /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.pkexec.ettercap.policy,
       allowing  users  to  directly  call  ettercap  from the desktop or menu launcher with root
       privileges.
       The commands available are exactly the same as the ettercap man page.

       Please refer to man ettercap for the list of available parameters.
       (don't forget to change "ettercap" to "ettercap-pkexec" as caller program).

       example:

       ettercap-pkexec -G will start ettercap with root privileges and the GTK2 interface.

BUGS

       Our software never has bugs.
       It just develops random features.   ;)

       KNOWN-BUGS

       -  ettercap  doesn't handle fragmented packets... only the first segment will be displayed
       by the sniffer. However all the fragments are correctly forwarded.

PHILOLOGICAL HISTORY

       "Even if blessed with a feeble intelligence, they are cruel and  smart..."   this  is  the
       description of Ettercap, a monster of the RPG Advanced Dungeons & Dragon.

       The  name  "ettercap"  was  chosen because it has an assonance with "ethercap" which means
       "ethernet capture" (what ettercap actually does) and also because  such  monsters  have  a
       powerful poison... and you know, arp poisoning... ;)

The Lord Of The (Token)Ring

       (the fellowship of the packet)

       "One Ring to link them all, One Ring to ping them,
        one Ring to bring them all and in the darkness sniff them."

Last words

       "Programming  today  is  a  race  between  software engineers striving to build bigger and
       better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better  idiots.
       So far, the Universe is winning." - Rich Cook
