fping install as setuid
I am trying to configure fping with the setuid set. I am setting up ARGUS and it likes to have fping setuid set. For now I can run argus as root, just cureous how to run the setuid.
Open a terminal as root, go in the directory where fping is and type:
chmod 4664 ./fping
If you don't like CLI, you can do it very easily with Nautilus. Open Nautilus (as root), right click on the fping icon then click on the "permission" tab. Then you can just graphically click on the permission you want to give to the file. It even shows you the chmod command to pass (look how the "text view" changes when you change the permission).
