  • Hello. I just installed packETH and I am just wondering whether it is possible to send a simple IP package with it, without entering the MAC adress. So, if I just want to send a package in an IP network - is that possible with packETH? I tried to, but any time I leave out the MAC adress field, packETH refuses to send anything, it wants to have the MAC adress!

    hi Ewgenij,

    no it is not possible with packETH. Because it uses the raw socket mode the whole packet has to be constructed including the L2 fields (MAC addresses).
