Sends custom packets and displays target replies
'Hping' sends custom ICMP/UDP/TCP packets and displays target replies. It handles fragmentation and arbitrary packet body and size, and can be used to transfer files under supported protocols. With 'Hping', you can test firewall rules, perform [spoofed] port scanning, test net performance using different protocols, packet size, TOS (type of service), and fragmentation, do path MTU discovery, tranfer files (even between really Fascist firewall rules), perform traceroute-like actions under different protocols, fingerprint remote OSs, and audit a TCP/IP stack.
