Creates virtual hosts on a network

'Honeyd' is a small daemon that creates virtual hosts on a network. The hosts can be configured to run arbitrary services, and their TCP personality can be adapted so that they appear to be running certain versions of operating systems. 'Honeyd' lets a single host claim multiple addresses on a LAN for network simulation. Users can ping and/or traceroute the virtual machines. Any type of service on the virtual machine can be simulated or proxied to another machine according to a simple configuration file.
