Farsight is a Warcraft III hack that allows people on the Internet see your Local Network games.

When you first run Farsight, it will prompt you for your administrator password. This is necessary because Farsight needs root privileges to sniff Warcraft III's packets. A more detailed discussion is at the end of this file. You will have to re-enter your password if you move/copy Farsight to another filesystem.

Farsight allows you to play Warcraft III over the Internet by making your Local Network multiplayer games visible to several friends whose IP addresses you enter. Front-end written in Cocoa.

What's New

Version 0.2 changes the user interface. A combination box now stores the 20 recently-used addresses. A log window now shows the output of the farsightd background process. The address limit raised to 200. The new Preferences window allows you to select a network interface to use, for those of you with both wireless and ethernet networks.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.1 or later, Warcraft III.

As Farsight doesn't work anymore I decided to develop my own application. Check out JurCraft:

Actually it works just fine, unfortunately it was just packaged with bad permissions.
Make sure you have the correct permissions for both the GUI binary and the farsightd binary (inside the GUI package.
I have the following permissions and the app works:
-r-sr-xr-x 1 root wheel 23748 18 Jan 23:18 farsightd
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root admin 136236 18 Jan 23:18 Farsight

First, the download from this site doesn't work; Secondly the download i've found in another site, thought the image say it is 0.2, but the app indeed say it's 0.1; Anyway me and my frd have try both gui and terminal mode, having downgrade from fronze throne 0.15 back to 0.07, restart for million times, and even though the terminal report that packet have been sniffed and sent to my frd ip, and sipmly doesn't work...... :(

Using OSX 10.3, GUI crashes after inputting ip address. Open up terminal and navigate into the farsight.app folder, and look for farsightd (its somewhere in there). Launch farsightd manually. syntax is 'farsightd ', simple huh? You can input multiple ip addresses/hostnames by separating them with spaces. Works perfectly!

I'm sure it would be wonderful... if it wouldn't crash after every admin password entry..... This program gives me grey hair.

Works great!! Finally a fun game with friends without battlenet :). And the greatest is that others can play with you without this app. Only the one who creates the game needs FarSight and the ip's of the others. Mac/Win opponents, doesn't matter it just works great!!
