Hi Falco, I did that.

Was a while since I attempted this tutorial, from first seeing it.

But this is the error I get when I updated the various development languages:

[root@server1 portsentry_beta]# make linux
cc -O -Wall -DLINUX -DSUPPORT_STEALTH -o ./portsentry ./portsentry.c \
./portsentry_io.c ./portsentry_util.c
./portsentry.c: In function `Usage':
./portsentry.c:1584: error: missing terminating " character
./portsentry.c:1585: error: `sourceforget' undeclared (first use in this function)
./portsentry.c:1585: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
./portsentry.c:1585: error: for each function it appears in.)
./portsentry.c:1585: error: syntax error before "dot"
./portsentry.c:1585: error: stray '\' in program
./portsentry.c:1585: error: missing terminating " character
make: *** [linux] Error 1
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Lightbulb Solved!

Actually its some problem with the code.

Not sure why they didnt sort this out, or havent yet, but this is the offending line in 'portsentry.c' file:

printf ("Copyright 1997-2003 Craig H. Rowland <craigrowland at users dot

sourceforget dot net>\n");
Just this is on 2 lines, you cant have this in c programming so, I just removed the line and it works now, not sure why they havent picked up on this yet but hey!

Might try and find a contact and ask them to do this to allow other users who dont know C very well to work with this.
