You should take a look at SING. SING is written by the same author - Andreas
Alfredo Omella and has better functionality.

I would also recommend you reading my paper "ICMP Usage In Scanning"
available from
www.sys-security.com, to understand the various tweaks and tricks with ICMP.

If packet shaping is your business, than have a look a Max vision's web

Dearest compadres, again.

Has anyone ever heard of a tool named "ICMPpush"? or something similar?
which works a s an ICMP-specific packet builder for various ICMP types.
It is my understanding (or lack thereof) that on dummy terms or other
hosts which may (firewall or otherwise) prevent normal ICMP traffic, may
indeed allow other types through for various "are you alive?" purposes.

correct me, please! if I am wrong.
