NAME
iptest - automatically generate a packets to test IP functionality
SYNOPSIS
iptest [ -1234567 ] [ -d <device> ] [ -g <gateway> ] [ -m <MTU> ] [ -p <pointtest> ] [ -s <source> ] <destination>
DESCRIPTION
iptest ...
OPTIONS
-1 Run IP test group #1. This group of tests generates packets with the IP header fields set to invalid values given other packet characteristics. The point tests are: 1 (ip_hl < ip_len), 2 (ip_hl > ip_len), 3 (ip_v < 4), 4 (ip_v > 4), 5 (ip_len < packetsize, long packets), 6 (ip_len > packet size, short packets), 7 (Zero length fragments), 8 (packet > 64k after reassembly), 9 (IP offset with MSB set), 10 (ttl variations). -2 Run IP test group #2. This group of tests generates packets with the IP options constructed with invalid values given other packet characteristics. The point tests are: 1 (option length > packet length), 2 (option length = 0). -3 Run IP test group #3. This group of tests generates packets with the ICMP header fields set to non-standard values. The point tests are: 1 (ICMP types 0-31 & 255), 2 (type 3 & code 0 - 31), 3 (type 4 & code 0, 127, 128, 255), 4 (type 5 & code 0, 127, 128, 255), 5 (types 8-10,13-18 with codes 0, 127, 128 and 255), 6 (type 12 & code 0, 127, 128, 129, 255) and 7 (type 3 & codes 9-10, 13-14 and 17-18 - shortened packets). -4 Run IP test group #4. This group of tests generates packets with the UDP header fields set to non-standard values. The point tests are: 1 (UDP length > packet size), 2 (UDP length < packetsize), 3 (sport = 0, 1, 32767, 32768, 65535), 4 (dport = 0, 1, 32767, 32768, 65535) and 5 (sizeof(struct ip) <= MTU <= sizeof(struct udphdr) + sizeof(struct ip)). -5 Run IP test group #5. This group of tests generates packets with the TCP header fields set to non-standard values. The point tests are: 1 (TCP flags variations, all combinations), 2 (seq = 0, 0x7fffffff, 0x8000000, 0xa0000000, 0xffffffff), 3 (ack = 0, 0x7fffffff, 0x8000000, 0xa0000000, 0xffffffff), 4 (SYN packet with window of 0, 32768, 65535), 5 (set urgent pointer to 1, 0x7fff, 0x8000, 0xffff), 6 (data offset), 7 (sport = 0, 1, 32767, 32768, 65535) and 8 (dport = 0, 1, 32767, 32768, 65535). -6 Run IP test group #6. This test generates a large number of fragments in an attempt to exhaust the network buffers used for holding packets for later reassembly. WARNING: this may crash or cause serious performance degradation to the target host. -7 Run IP test group #7. This test generates 1024 random IP pack- ets with only the IP version, checksum, length and IP offset field correct. -d <interface> Set the interface name to be the name supplied. -g <gateway> Specify the hostname of the gateway through which to route pack- ets. This is required whenever the destination host isn't directly attached to the same network as the host from which you're sending. -m <MTU> Specify the MTU to be used when sending out packets. This option allows you to set a fake MTU, allowing the simulation of network interfaces with small MTU's without setting them so. -p <test> Run a...

DIAGNOSTICS
Only one of the numeric test options may be given when iptest is run. Needs to be run as root.
