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.
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
PPC, 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

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!
