What is Scanhill

Scanhill is a Microsoft Messenger Protocol Sniffer. Currently it can only intercept Instant Text Messaging. Optionally, intercepted text messages can be stored onto an RDMBS (Only mySQL is supported for now). Given that mySQL is used, stored instant messages can be read through a browser interface that is written in PHP language. Please see the INSTALL.txt file for instructions on how to install, configure and run EnderUNIX scanhill. For licensing information see COPYTRIGHT.txt

It's been written in C language for performance reasons, proved to be running on Linux, OpenBSD and FreeBSD;


  • Print msn message to screen
