Packet Generator for Windows.

Sun Feb 28, 2010 4:51 pm

Hello:

What packet generator would you recommend for windows or linux?

I have downloaded nemesis, but it doesnt work with the lastest wincap library, so i cant sniff with wireshark. Anyone knows a good PG?

It depends on what kind of traffic you want to generate. If you would like to just send some custom packets, I would recommend Scapy.

The usage page of the documentation describes best, what you can do with it. It works basically on windows too, but there are some problems with wifi interfaces at the moment. That's why I would recommend to run it on Linux. Scapy has also support for Cisco protocols like CDP, OSPF, DTP and EIGRP for example, but they are not part of the official release until now. You'll have to download those extensions from the ticket system.

Best Regards,

Jochen

ipref has a front end (jpref) and I think scapy has one on linux, I know there was some packet crafting program that does what scapy can that had a gui, thought it was scapy but I do not remember.

Getting a lift into this topic, it's not possible to generate packets at Linux kernel level?

I will try it as soon as possible :D

Thanks!

I recently released Ostinato - an open-source, cross-platform packet/traffic generator and analyzer with a friendly GUI
