Hping 2 and Windows XP SP2 fixed

We are happy to announce that Hping 2 works with Windows XP again!
It is available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/sectools

For those who might not know, hping 2 is a packet crafting tool created
by Salvatore Sanfilippo and ported to Windows by Rob Turpin.  The unix
version is available at http://www.hping.org. When Microsoft removed raw
socket support in SP2, hping and a number of other programs broke.  This
causes problems in situations where Windows is the only thing available.

So we decided to fix the problem. For this, we would like to thank Fyoder
and the Nmap developers because they had already overcome the biggest
hurdles and we were able to work with their code and make it work within
Hping 2.

The Sourceforge site is where you can download the package, source,
report bugs or post questions in the forums.  You can also contact us,
