Help capture SSH Honeypot details and valid username and passwords used


Using this post, , I have setup a SSH Honeypot with Kippo.
If you want, you can forward traffic from your own servers to mine and see the results of the SSH capture @

Use this in your IPTables to forward your own port 22 traffic to mine @ IP

Change ethernet device to match yours.

Remember to save your iptables for after reboot. iptables-save
Also, you better set this: sysctl net.ipv4.ip_forward=1 OR echo “1” > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

You can achive the same forwarding results by using
redir ( )
socat ( )
without making use of ip_forward, NAT and masquerading.
