At the time of writing the best choice to install dionaea on a server is to use Ubuntu 14.04 as OS and the nightly packages provided in a Personal Package Archive (PPA). Before you start you should update all packages to get the latest security fixes.
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
First of all install some tools to easily manage PPA resources.
$ sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
After the required tools have been installed you can add the PPA and update the package cache.
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:honeynet/nightly $ sudo apt-get update
If everything worked without any errors you should be able to install the dionaea package.
$ sudo apt-get install dionaea
After the installation has been completed you may want to edit the config file at
/etc/dionaea/dionaea.conf . If everything looks fine the dionaea service can bee started by using the following command.
$ sudo service dionaea start
The log files can be found in the directory
/var/log/dionaea/ and everything else captured and logged by the honeypot can be found in the directory
