Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You might want to clarify a little bit your question.
What do you want to do?

Do you want / need a traffic generator? (if this is the case, i can suggest you <a href=”http://wiki.wireshark.org/Tools#Traffic_generators”>this page</a>)

As for traffic capture, there are various ways to do so.
I tend to tell you about one of the most used, that is <a href=”http://www.wireshark.org/”>Wireshark</a>.

What is your purpose?

    Agree w/ Saturno - We need to know what you're end results are supposed to be. If you're just sending data from host-to-host to do a "packet capture", Wireshark is a great tool for you...

    in peer to peer network environment which is without any server in my topology. The existence of a "server" shouldn't matter. Your programming should mostly work the same with or without any server. You address your packets to the same addresses either way. There would likely be differences in how you configure TCP/IP on the hosts, though. You would probably be using static IP addresses rather than relying on DHCP or other means of assigning addresses,and you might use local hosts table instead of remote DNS, and you'd possibly establish direct routes rather than relying on a default gateway route, and possibly other configuration elements. But anyone needing to send/receive and capture packets in peer-to-peer should have all of the fundamental configuration knowledge before starting. The question seems rather strange, almost backwards. Some additional description of the problem environment might help us. Tom

    actually, i have to analyze the TCP and UDP packet in different environment. the environments that i had to use were server based and peer to peer.. i had to analyze this 2 different packet in both environment. i don't know how to send the packets in this both environment with use the same traffic in both environment.

    for the last result, i suppose to get the differentiation of TCP and UDP in client-server and peer-to-peer network.
