Replays application layer packets (enclosed in either tcp or udp) from pcap files to a connection
$ go install github.com/ruel/pcaplay
pcaplay -file <pcap-file> [-port <listening-port>] [-proto tcp|udp] [-bpf <bpf-filter>] [-delay <packet-delay-ms>] [-wait <wait-flag-toggle>]
|bpf||Berkeley Packet Filter (BPF) string to isolate packets|
|delay||Delay between sent packets in milliseconds (default 100)|
|file||Location of PCAP file to replay|
|port||Layer 4 listening port (default 8484)|
|proto||Layer 4 protocol to use (default "tcp")|
|wait||Wait for first packet before starting replay (default true)|
Pcap files can be prepared and trimmed with Wireshark. In some cases, pcap files can be very large or unmanageable in such softwares and warrants on the fly (while reading) filtering. This can be achieved by using BPF or Berkley Packet Filter.
pcaplay accepts a bpf filter option to localize packets to be sent to the connection. Most common filters can be:
host 184.108.40.206- Isolates packets with the given host in either directions
port 1234- Returns packets with connections that uses given port in either directions
dst port 1234- Returns packets with a given destination port
