I am new to linux kernel development. so if any mistakes you find, pls
frgive it and correct me.
I wanted to send raw packets through ethernet, from kernel level.
So i use PF_PACKET family. & SOCK_RAW.And i used sock_create()
function to create socket.
But I found that when i create socket with
sock_create(PF_PACKET,SOCK_RAW,.....) the program always fails in
bind. (when i do sock->ops->bind(.....))
why is it so ? but when I use PF_INET & SOCK_PACKET to create socket.
bind happens successfully.
Can any one help me to come out of this issue?? OR direct me to create
raw packets and send from kernel??
thanks in advance
