Hello Kirk,

I'll appreciate it ;) 

Goggling gives a lot of links to libpcap based port knockers, but I dislike idea always running in promiscuous mode. Also "magic packet" is a sort of overkill for me, because I need access from random locations with different OS'es preferably without any additional tools. 
If computer is untrusted, after logon I can change knock sequence without leaving any keys behind. Even if password gets compromised is not so dangerous in this scenario.

By iptables based I mean using ulog or ipq to forward packets to knock daemon, thus its undetectable from outside and can be very fast.

About a year ago I tested 5 or 6 port knockers but I didn't find any  
suitable for me. Some had terrible cpu usage on my machine, 
some not enough flexible configuration.


KH> Yes, there are.  I use one for my work servers that is iptables based.

KH> "magic packet" style that I could probably find a link for if you were
KH> interested.
