3. Installing

The first thing you need to do is install the programs and documentation:

  1. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and documentation.

  2. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the source code directory by typing `make clean'. To also remove the files that configure created (so you can compile the package for a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'. There is also a `make maintainer-clean' target, but that is intended mainly for the package's developers. If you use it, you may have to get all sorts of other programs in order to regenerate files that came with the distribution.

The next step is to copy the file `impost.conf', located in the source directory, to `.impostrc' in the home directory belonging to the user who will be using Impost.

You will also need to copy the file `impost.shellcodes' to a safe location. After doing so, modify the `.impostrc' file and make sure that you put the correct pathname for `impost.shellcodes'.

If you don't have the priveledges to install impost, that's okay. Just copy the binary file `src/impost' to your home directory and follow the steps in the above two paragraphs.
