Tried getting fwknop 1.9.12 server working via .deb install on Ubuntu 8.04, but couldn't. It installed, but I couldn't get it to open the port. My current theory as to why is there is some kind of conflict involving libpcap0.7 (.deb dependency) and libpcap0.8 (which was already installed).

So I switched to building the server from source. That went fine. All 303 tests passed.

Over on the 1.9.12 client, also running on an Ubuntu 8.04 vm, which I installed via .deb, after building the server from source I was now able to access the desired port if I sent my request to a specific server port. But when I tried to send the packet to a random server port, but I got the following error message:

client command:
fwknop -A tcp/22 -a --rand-port -D

error message:
Cannot use --Server-port and --rand-port at the same time at /usr/bin/fwknop line 977.

So I switched to building the client from source. Retried the client command; got the same error message.

Any idea what's wrong?
