You’d think for all the esoteric network tools I have blundered through over the past year or so, I would have a better grasp of some fundamentals.
I don’t. 🙄
That’s sendip, which I like for being easy to figure out, giving plenty of information, and looking good in a screenshot. 😳
It does look good though. It spills the contents of the packet to the screen, including whatever piggybacked data you specified, and gives you a report of the transaction. Clean, neat and talkative.
What you do with that … I really don’t know for sure. It must be a science thing. 😯
Of course, without the flag for verbosity, sendip is meek as a kitten. So you have the option, if you prefer the strong, silent type.
sendip is in AUR and Debian, and strikes me as a useful tool to keep around. Even if I don’t know what it does. But when has that ever stopped me?! 😀
