    Here it is ~ 1 week later - are you still around?

    I've been playing around with a utility tonight that may interest you: hping2.

    What if you could encapsulate data from a file in udp packets? You may be able to redirect the data you need to a specified file, then send the contents of the file to remote host's udp port 9999 using hping2.

    Hi anomie,

    Thanks for your response.

    I have played with hping in the past.

    Perhaps your right, it could be used for this purpose.

    As you know, I basically wanted to generate constant broadcast traffic (for my lab environment)

    On windows (cygwin) I use:
    nc -u 192.168.1.255 9999 < /dev/random


    I'll check out hping now and see if it's up to the job.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
