'Packit' is a network auditing tool that can customize, inject, monitor, and manipulate IP traffic. By letting you define (spoof) nearly all TCP, UDP, ICMP, IP, ARP, RARP, and Ethernet header options, Packit is useful in testing firewalls, intrusion detection systems, port scanning, simulating network traffic, and general TCP/IP auditing. It is also an excellent tool for learning TCP/IP.
