xufengnju has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello PerlMonks,

I have a linux server in by-pass mode, sitting in-parallel with a switch, that is, it can receive packets that should goes to other hosts. I want to get the packets and process them with perl. After processing, I want to send some specific packet to the original clients such as reset. The question is, how can I make it to fake packets in perl, I mean, I want to send packets using source ip and source mac not belonging to me. Are there some modules ready? Thank you in advance.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.
