I got a new firewall for the holidays and now I'm getting steady stream of alerts from peers connecting to my Bitnode.
I wanted to check what IPs were actually making successful transactions vs just scanning my bitnodes for vulnerabilies. Thoughts on the best way to do that?
I'm currently brute force looking at IPs:
grep -n "receive version message" /tmp/hardware-bitcoind-stdout-* > /tmp/bitcoin-transfer-ip-1016am.log
Using pscp to copy the file back (from WINDOWS)
# pscp "bitnodes@<BITNODESIP>:/tmp/bitcoin-transfer-ip-1016am.log" "C:\Users\<PATHNAME>\."
The opening the file via WORDPAD and saving it as a .CSV. I then use Excel magic to get a list of peer IPs.
Any thoughts on how best audit attacks on our Bitnodes vs ones making successful Blockchain transactions?
(Thanks for the help and HAPPY NEW YEAR!)
