Hping 2

A network security testing utility
hping is a command-line oriented TCP/IP packet assembler / analyzer. The interface is inspired to the ping(8) unix command, but hping isn't only able to send ICMP echo requests. It supports TCP, UDP, ICMP and RAW-IP protocols, has a traceroute mode, the ability to send files between a covered channel, and many other features. 

While hping was mainly used as a security tool in the past, it can be used in many ways by people that don't care about security to test networks and hosts.

Get Hping and take it for a test drive to see what it's all about!

Main features:

  • Firewall testing
  • Advanced port scanning
  • Network testing, using different protocols, TOS, fragmentation
  • Manual path MTU discovery
  • Advanced traceroute, under all the supported protocols
  • Remote OS fingerprinting
  • Remote uptime guessing
  • TCP/IP stacks auditing
  • hping can also be useful to students that are learning TCP/IP.
