I've considered setting up a honeypot but not before I learn alot more than
what I know now. It's a tremendous responsibility considering if not setup
properly could backfire. 

For now, though, what I plan on doing is punching a hole through the
firewall to a common port like portmapper (111) then placing something on
it that'll allow the port to appear open like running nc -l -p 111 -v along
with snort and seeing what I capture.

Join the Navy; sail to far-off exotic lands, meet 
exciting interesting people, and kill them.
