Firewall testing tool - name forgotten ...

I'm looking for a firewall testing tool that runs under FreeBSD (among 
others) and consists of a packet sender on one system, and a packet 
listener on another system. The firewall is in between. The sender 
generates traffic and the listener sees what goes through the firewall. 
Then a summary of the firewall rules can be made.

I'm almost sure I read about the tool in one of R. Bejtlichs "Tao of 
Network Security Monitoring" of "Extrusion detection" books, but I've gone 
through them almost page by page and I can't find the reference anymore.

Anyone remembers the name of the tool? I would like to try it on a new 
production firewall. Has anyone already tried it? 

Greetings, Petr Kazil
