Fine, what are we waiting for? Lets go ahead and create our own packet. Lets create a TCP/IP packet.

>>> i=IP() #create IP packet
>>> i.dst="" #destination =
>>> i.src="" #source =
>>> i.ttl=128 #time to live = 128
>>> #show the created packet
###[ IP ]###
version= 4
ihl= None
tos= 0x0
len= None
id= 1
frag= 0
ttl= 128
proto= ip
chksum= None
>>> t=TCP() #create TCP packet
>>> send(i/t) #send the packets, '/' is used as a separator
