Ward

ward is a very nice, light, and fast wardialer written in C for UNIX systems, with the peculiarity of working over PSTN, ISDN, and GSM networks. Written by Marco "Raptor" Ivaldi ([email protected]), an actual OSSTMM contributor who is well known in the international underground scene, ward is a "classic" wardialer tool: It scans a list of phone numbers, hunting for modems answering on the other end, thus providing a nicely formatted output of the scan results. ward can generate a list of phone numbers from a user-supplied mask, in both incremental or random order (which can be extremely useful in some cases!).

ward is one of the fastest PBX scanners you will ever find, and it has been tested on Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Mac OS X, and Windows/cygwin. Do the tuning for your system and compile with: gcc ward.c -o ward -lm. Since ward is so well written and light, we'll list its usage and its few, but useful, parameters here. You can see ward at work in Figure 6-3. Usage:

./ward [ [-g file] [-n nummask] ] [-r] (generation mode) ./ward [-s file] [-t timeout] [-d dev] (scanning mode)

Parameters in generation mode:

-g : generate numbers list and save it to file -n : number mask to be used in generation mode -r : toggle random mode ON
