mz - a fast versatile packet generator
is a free fast traffic generator written in C which allows you
to send nearly every possible and impossible packet. Mausezahn's MOPS
subsystem (Mausezahn's Own Packet System) supports an interactive mode with a
Cisco-style command line interface (CLI). In order to activate this
interactive mode, execute Mausezahn using the -x
followed by an arbitrary TCP port number, such as
# mz -x 99
in which case you can connect to Mausezahn via
$ telnet 127.0.0.1 99
If no port number is specified, Mausezahn uses the default port number 25542
(which is the date of towel day followed by the answer to the universe and
everything; however, you don't need to understand this in order to continue).
Login credentials as well as other MOPS-related parameters can be specified in
the Mausezahn configuration file mz.cfg
located in etc/mausezahn.
Currently, user-specific configuration files are not supported.
If no configuration file is present Mausezahn assumes the following default
enable password: mops
Currently only login credentials can be configured within the configuration
file. Here is an example content of /etc/mausezahn/mz.cfg
user = herbert
password = moTTe
enable = T0p5ecreT
Additional configuration options will be officially supported with the next
