files encapsulated under supported protocols. Using hping2
you are able to perform at least the following stuff:

- Test firewall rules

- Test net performance using different protocols,
packet size, TOS (type of service) and fragmentation.
- Path MTU discovery
- Transferring files between even really fascist firewall
- Traceroute-like under different protocols.
- Firewalk-like usage.
- Remote OS fingerprinting.
- TCP/IP stack auditing.
- A lot of others.

It is also a good didactic tool to learn TCP/IP. hping2 is
developed and maintained by antirez@invece.org and is
licensed under GPL version 2.
