Packit (Packet toolkit) is a network auditing tool. Its value is derived from its ability to customize, inject, monitor, and manipulate IP traffic. By allowing you to define (spoof) nearly all TCP, UDP, ICMP, IP, ARP, RARP, and Ethernet header options, Packit can be useful in testing firewalls, intrusion detection/prevention systems, port scanning, simulating network traffic, and general TCP/IP auditing. Packit is also an excellent tool for learning TCP/IP.
Packit 1.0 requires libnet 1.1.2 or greater as well as libpcap. It has been successfully compiled and tested to run on FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, MacOS X and Linux.
Due to shifting priorities, this project is now in maintenance mode. If you find a bug, either submit a patch or email me the details. I'll do my best to put out fix in a reasonable amount of time.
