Tested Versions

  • 7.2.0 64bit
  • 6.0.7 64bit

This was tested on a minimal installation w/o desktop packages.


Install dependencies:

apt-get install git libsmi2ldbl smistrip libxslt1-dev python-dev libevent-dev

Debian 6 specific

apt-get install python-pip
pip install argparse

The package snmp-mibs-downloader is non-free so we have to install the package manually. All dependencies are covered by installing smistrip. Get the package from here:

wget $package_url
dpkg -i $package_name

Alternatively, add “non-free” to the /etc/apt/sources.list

deb squeeze main non-free

And do an

apt-get update

followed by

apt-get install snmp-mibs-downloader

The stable version of Conpot can be downloaded from PyPI:

pip install conpot

The development version can be cloned from github - but we need a modified modbus-tk first.

cd /opt
git clone
cd modbus-tk
python install
cd ..
git clone
cd conpot
python install
