in reply to network flooder

I just want to point out a few other tools for network diagnosis, of which I hope that they are less harmful if accidentally mis-used:
  • iperf for TCP performance testing
  • netcat, the swiss army knife of network connections
  • nmap for port scanning

I have yet to find a legitimate use for a network flooder, except defense testing.

    "I have yet to find a legitimate use for a network flooder"

    Unless the desired effect was to be almost killed by a neighbour, in which case, mission accomplished :P

      the whole point is illegitimate use :-) .... like what would james bond use if he had to take out osama's network?

        If Bond was being played by Sir Roger Moore no doubt all he'd need would be a raised eyebrow, a safari suit and some double entendre.
