Why not generate packet using libpcap  based C code ?

You can get examples all over … and it should not take more then 15 minutes to code it …


 If you need a few packets ( for different packet formats  this might be longer and you should go ahead and sniff real traffic ).

Nothing beats a "real" trace of course but text2pcap is an option, how to do it depends on the protocol layers and what type of traces you do have available.

You'll have to hand craft your protocol part which may not be so easy and may not prove that your dissector is correct.

I am presently working on wireshark for past few days.  I tried to include a protocol in asn.1 format. Could any one of you, help me by saying how to generate the test packet to test it.
