There are many different types of honeypots and these different types are explained very well in the book Virtual Honeypots which I highly recommend you read if you are serious about deploying a honeypot. This series of articles will focus on honeypots using an application called honeyd. There are a number of honeypot solutions out there but I tutoriak feel like honeyd is a great fit because it can be relatively simple or you can start tweaking it to get a more full featured product.
For this tutorial I will be using one Windows machine and one Linux machine, Backtrack distribution to be exact.
Backtrack will be the machine that is running honeyd. Honeyd is available for Windows but I highly recommend that you use honeyd on Linux.
Sorry for the Linux rant, below is basic diagram of my setup. This will also work for any Debian based Linux system.
To install on other distributions such as Gentoo, Fedora, Slackware, etc I would check their documentation on how to install packages. A honeyd configuration file is the heart of your honeypot. The configuration file tells honeyd what operating system to emulate, what ports to open, what services should tutoroal ran, etc. Below is my config file.
Within Backtrack you can use Kate or nano text editors to create this file. In Backtrack Kate is under the Utilities menu.

This is emulated via network stack fingerprints. These are common ports that are open on a windows system. This will be needed if you run your honeypot via dhcp. Finally the dhcp honyd tells the windows template to acquire an IP address from dhcp.
Now that we have our honeyd. This allow for more verbose output so that we can troubleshoot as needed. Running in this mode will also show the IP that was given to our honeypot via dhcp.
Below is the type of output hondyd should see after running the honeyd command. In this verbose output we see that dhcp gave our honeypot the address of You should see output on the terminal similar to below.
