You should have mentioned the GRE tunnel capabilities of Honeyd. The
purpose is to consolidate several topographically separate networks to
a single Honeyd locations. That is how I have been running my spam
traps for months now.

You can also use it for distributed Honeyd installations where you
have more than one Honeyd host sharing the load among themselves.
