Guessnet takes in input a list of candidate network profiles, each of which includes a test description; then it runs all the tests in parallel and prints the name of the profile whose test was the first one to succeed.
Available tests are: * ARP probes to check for known hosts in the network * link beat check, to check if the interface is connected to anything * PPPOE check to see if there is a concentrator accessible via PPPOE * Checks provided by custom arbitrary scripts.
Guessnet can be used in either native mode or "ifupdown mode". In the latter case guessnet integrates nicely with ifupdown as a "mapping script".
guessnet for Debian ------------------- * Small list of wishes that, if fulfilled, could help making ifupdown plus guessnet a more useful combination: - #76142, #92993, #96265, #129003, #164823, #171981, would help in having an interesting default for when no test succeeds, especially when I'll have implemented DHCP scans - #204641 would help in having an even more interes more»
guessnet README Sections: NOTES INTRODUCING MARKETING TRIGGERING BUILDING MAINTAINING TODO DONE LINKS NEWS ==== Last updated 27 Oct 2005 INTRODUCING =========== The guessnet program tries to guess the current network location by performing tests such as making DHCP and ARP requests.

README file for the guessnet examples ===================================== I've tried to reimplement using guessnet the other network detection tools found in Debian. Here are the results: * laptop-netconf guessnet was derived from laptop-netconf and should fully implement the latter's features. * divine and intuitively Implementing all their features is not yet possible becau more»
