+ ===What's Hping?===
- Also *do not submit copyrighted work without permission!*.
+ hping is a free packet generator and analyzer for the [TCP/IP] protocol. Hping is one of the de-facto tools for security auditing and testing of firewalls and networks, and was used to exploit the [Idle Scan] scanning technique now implemented in the [Nmap] port scanner. The new version of hping, hping3, is scriptable using the [Tcl] language and implements an engine for string based, human readable description of TCP/IP packets, so that the programmer can write scripts related to low level TCP/IP packet manipulation and analysis in a very short time.
+ Like most tools used in computer security, hping is useful to security experts, but there are a lot of applications related to network testing and system administration.
+ For more information see the [what's hping] page.

-   Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
-   of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
-  The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other
-  functional and useful document "free" in the sense of freedom: to
-  assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it,
-  with or without modifying it, either commercially or noncommercially.
-  Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way
-  to get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible
-  for modifications made by others.
-  This License is a kind of "copyleft", which means that derivative
-  works of the document must themselves be free in the same sense.  It
-  complements the GNU General Public License, which is a copyleft
-  license designed for free software.
-  We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals for free
-  software, because free software needs free documentation: a free
-  program should come with manuals providing the same freedoms that the
-  software does.  But this License is not limited to software manuals;
-  it can be used for any textual work, regardless of subject matter or
-  whether it is published as a printed book.  We recommend this License
-  principally for works whose purpose is instruction or reference.
-  This License applies to any manual or other work, in any medium, that
-  contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it can be
-  distributed under the terms of this License.  Such a notice grants a
-  world-wide, royalty-free license, unlimited in duration, to use that
-  work under the conditions stated herein.  The "Document", below,
-  refers to any such manual or work.  Any member of the public is a
-  licensee, and is addressed as "you".  You accept the license if you
-  copy, modify or distribute the work in a way requiring permission
-  under copyright law.
-  A "Modified Version" of the Document means any work containing the
-  Document or a portion of it, either copied verbatim, or with
-  modifications and/or translated into another language.
-  A "Secondary Section" is a named appendix or a front-matter section of
-  the Document that deals exclusively with the relationship of the
-  publishers or authors of the Document to the Document's overall subject
-  (or to related matters) and contains nothing that could fall directly
-  within that overall subject.  (Thus, if the Document is in part a
-  textbook of mathematics, a Secondary Section may not explain any
-  mathematics.)  The relationship could be a matter of historical
-  connection with the subject or with related matters, or of legal,
-  commercial, philosophical, ethical or political position regarding
-  them.
-  The "Invariant Sections" are certain Secondary Sections whose titles
-  are designated, as being those of Invariant Sections, in the notice
-  that says that the Document is released under this License.  If a
-  section does not fit the above definition of Secondary then it is not
-  allowed to be designated as Invariant.  The Document may contain zero
-  Invariant Sections.  If the Document does not identify any Invariant
-  Sections then there are none.
-  The "Cover Texts" are certain short passages of text that are listed,
-  as Front-Cover Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the notice that says that
-  the Document is released under this License.  A Front-Cover Text may
-  be at most 5 words, and a Back-Cover Text may be at most 25 words.
-  A "Transparent" copy of the Document means a machine-readable copy,
-  represented in a format whose specification is available to the
-  general public, that is suitable for revising the document
-  straightforwardly with generic text editors or (for images composed of
-  pixels) generic paint programs or (for drawings) some widely available
-  drawing editor, and that is suitable for input to text formatters or
-  for automatic translation to a variety of formats suitable for input
-  to text formatters.  A copy made in an otherwise Transparent file
-  format whose markup, or absence of markup, has been arranged to thwart
-  or discourage subsequent modification by readers is not Transparent.
-  An image format is not Transparent if used for any substantial amount
-  of text.  A copy that is not "Transparent" is called "Opaque".
-  Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include plain
-  ASCII without markup, Texinfo input format, LaTeX input format, SGML
-  or XML using a publicly available DTD, and standard-conforming simple
-  HTML, PostScript or PDF designed for human modification.  Examples of
-  transparent image formats include PNG, XCF and JPG.  Opaque formats
-  include proprietary formats that can be read and edited only by
-  proprietary word processors, SGML or XML for which the DTD and/or
-  processing tools are not generally available, and the
-  machine-generated HTML, PostScript or PDF produced by some word
-  processors for output purposes only.
-  The "Title Page" means, for a printed book, the title page itself,
-  plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly, the material
-  this License requires to appear in the title page.  For works in
-  formats which do not have any title page as such, "Title Page" means
-  the text near the most prominent appearance of the work's title,
-  preceding the beginning of the body of the text.
-  A section "Entitled XYZ" means a named subunit of the Document whose
-  title either is precisely XYZ or contains XYZ in parentheses following
-  text that translates XYZ in another language.  (Here XYZ stands for a
-  specific section name mentioned below, such as "Acknowledgements",
-  "Dedications", "Endorsements", or "History".)  To "Preserve the Title"
-  of such a section when you modify the Document means that it remains a
-  section "Entitled XYZ" according to this definition.
-  The Document may include Warranty Disclaimers next to the notice which
-  states that this License applies to the Document.  These Warranty
-  Disclaimers are considered to be included by reference in this
-  License, but only as regards disclaiming warranties: any other
-  implication that these Warranty Disclaimers may have is void and has
-  no effect on the meaning of this License.
-  You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either
-  commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the
-  copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies
-  to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that you add no other
-  conditions whatsoever to those of this License.  You may not use
-  technical measures to obstruct or control the reading or further
-  copying of the copies you make or distribute.  However, you may accept
-  compensation in exchange for copies.  If you distribute a large enough
-  number of copies you must also follow the conditions in section 3.
-  You may also lend copies, under the same conditions stated above, and
-  you may publicly display copies.
-  If you publish printed copies (or copies in media that commonly have
-  printed covers) of the Document, numbering more than 100, and the
-  Document's license notice requires Cover Texts, you must enclose the
-  copies in covers that carry, clearly and legibly, all these Cover
-  Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front cover, and Back-Cover Texts on
-  the back cover.  Both covers must also clearly and legibly identify
-  you as the publisher of these copies.  The front cover must present
-  the full title with all words of the title equally prominent and
-  visible.  You may add other material on the covers in addition.
-  Copying with changes limited to the covers, as long as they preserve
-  the title of the Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated
-  as verbatim copying in other respects.
-  If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to fit
-  legibly, you should put the first ones listed (as many as fit
-  reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the rest onto adjacent
-  pages.
-  If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document numbering
-  more than 100, you must either include a machine-readable Transparent
-  copy along with each Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy
-  a computer-network location from which the general network-using
-  public has access to download using public-standard network protocols
-  a complete Transparent copy of the Document, free of added material.
-  If you use the latter option, you must take reasonably prudent steps,
-  when you begin distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure
-  that this Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at the stated
-  location until at least one year after the last time you distribute an
-  Opaque copy (directly or through your agents or retailers) of that
-  edition to the public.
-  It is requested, but not required, that you contact the authors of the
-  Document well before redistributing any large number of copies, to give
-  them a chance to provide you with an updated version of the Document.
-  You may copy and distribute a Modified Version of the Document under
-  the conditions of sections 2 and 3 above, provided that you release
-  the Modified Version under precisely this License, with the Modified
-  Version filling the role of the Document, thus licensing distribution
-  and modification of the Modified Version to whoever possesses a copy
-  of it.  In addition, you must do these things in the Modified Version:
-  A. Use in the Title Page (and on the covers, if any) a title distinct
-     from that of the Document, and from those of previous versions
-     (which should, if there were any, be listed in the History section
-     of the Document).  You may use the same title as a previous version
-     if the original publisher of that version gives permission.
-  B. List on the Title Page, as authors, one or more persons or entities
-     responsible for authorship of the modifications in the Modified
-     Version, together with at least five of the principal authors of the
-     Document (all of its principal authors, if it has fewer than five),
-     unless they release you from this requirement.
-  C. State on the Title page the name of the publisher of the
-     Modified Version, as the publisher.
-  D. Preserve all the copyright notices of the Document.
-  E. Add an appropriate copyright notice for your modifications
-     adjacent to the other copyright notices.
-  F. Include, immediately after the copyright notices, a license notice
-     giving the public permission to use the Modified Version under the
-     terms of this License, in the form shown in the Addendum below.
-  G. Preserve in that license notice the full lists of Invariant Sections
-     and required Cover Texts given in the Document's license notice.
-  H. Include an unaltered copy of this License.
-  I. Preserve the section Entitled "History", Preserve its Title, and add
-     to it an item stating at least the title, year, new authors, and
-     publisher of the Modified Version as given on the Title Page.  If
-     there is no section Entitled "History" in the Document, create one
-     stating the title, year, authors, and publisher of the Document as
-     given on its Title Page, then add an item describing the Modified
-     Version as stated in the previous sentence.
-  J. Preserve the network location, if any, given in the Document for
-     public access to a Transparent copy of the Document, and likewise
-     the network locations given in the Document for previous versions
-     it was based on.  These may be placed in the "History" section.
-     You may omit a network location for a work that was published at
-     least four years before the Document itself, or if the original
-     publisher of the version it refers to gives permission.
-  K. For any section Entitled "Acknowledgements" or "Dedications",
-     Preserve the Title of the section, and preserve in the section all
-     the substance and tone of each of the contributor acknowledgements
-     and/or dedications given therein.
-  L. Preserve all the Invariant Sections of the Document,
-     unaltered in their text and in their titles.  Section numbers
-     or the equivalent are not considered part of the section titles.
-  M. Delete any section Entitled "Endorsements".  Such a section
-     may not be included in the Modified Version.
-  N. Do not retitle any existing section to be Entitled "Endorsements"
-     or to conflict in title with any Invariant Section.
-  O. Preserve any Warranty Disclaimers.
-  If the Modified Version includes new front-matter sections or
-  appendices that qualify as Secondary Sections and contain no material
-  copied from the Document, you may at your option designate some or all
-  of these sections as invariant.  To do this, add their titles to the
-  list of Invariant Sections in the Modified Version's license notice.
-  These titles must be distinct from any other section titles.
-  You may add a section Entitled "Endorsements", provided it contains
-  nothing but endorsements of your Modified Version by various
-  parties--for example, statements of peer review or that the text has
-  been approved by an organization as the authoritative definition of a
-  standard.
-  You may add a passage of up to five words as a Front-Cover Text, and a
-  passage of up to 25 words as a Back-Cover Text, to the end of the list
-  of Cover Texts in the Modified Version.  Only one passage of
-  Front-Cover Text and one of Back-Cover Text may be added by (or
-  through arrangements made by) any one entity.  If the Document already
-  includes a cover text for the same cover, previously added by you or
-  by arrangement made by the same entity you are acting on behalf of,
-  you may not add another; but you may replace the old one, on explicit
-  permission from the previous publisher that added the old one.
-  The author(s) and publisher(s) of the Document do not by this License
-  give permission to use their names for publicity for or to assert or
-  imply endorsement of any Modified Version.
-  You may combine the Document with other documents released under this
-  License, under the terms defined in section 4 above for modified
-  versions, provided that you include in the combination all of the
-  Invariant Sections of all of the original documents, unmodified, and
-  list them all as Invariant Sections of your combined work in its
-  license notice, and that you preserve all their Warranty Disclaimers.
-  The combined work need only contain one copy of this License, and
-  multiple identical Invariant Sections may be replaced with a single
-  copy.  If there are multiple Invariant Sections with the same name but
-  different contents, make the title of each such section unique by
-  adding at the end of it, in parentheses, the name of the original
-  author or publisher of that section if known, or else a unique number.
-  Make the same adjustment to the section titles in the list of
-  Invariant Sections in the license notice of the combined work.
-  In the combination, you must combine any sections Entitled "History"
-  in the various original documents, forming one section Entitled
-  "History"; likewise combine any sections Entitled "Acknowledgements",
-  and any sections Entitled "Dedications".  You must delete all sections
-  Entitled "Endorsements".
-  You may make a collection consisting of the Document and other documents
-  released under this License, and replace the individual copies of this
-  License in the various documents with a single copy that is included in
-  the collection, provided that you follow the rules of this License for
-  verbatim copying of each of the documents in all other respects.
-  You may extract a single document from such a collection, and distribute
-  it individually under this License, provided you insert a copy of this
-  License into the extracted document, and follow this License in all
-  other respects regarding verbatim copying of that document.
-  A compilation of the Document or its derivatives with other separate
-  and independent documents or works, in or on a volume of a storage or
-  distribution medium, is called an "aggregate" if the copyright
-  resulting from the compilation is not used to limit the legal rights
-  of the compilation's users beyond what the individual works permit.
-  When the Document is included in an aggregate, this License does not
-  apply to the other works in the aggregate which are not themselves
-  derivative works of the Document.
-  If the Cover Text requirement of section 3 is applicable to these
-  copies of the Document, then if the Document is less than one half of
-  the entire aggregate, the Document's Cover Texts may be placed on
-  covers that bracket the Document within the aggregate, or the
-  electronic equivalent of covers if the Document is in electronic form.
-  Otherwise they must appear on printed covers that bracket the whole
-  aggregate.
-  Translation is considered a kind of modification, so you may
-  distribute translations of the Document under the terms of section 4.
-  Replacing Invariant Sections with translations requires special
-  permission from their copyright holders, but you may include
-  translations of some or all Invariant Sections in addition to the
-  original versions of these Invariant Sections.  You may include a
-  translation of this License, and all the license notices in the
-  Document, and any Warranty Disclaimers, provided that you also include
-  the original English version of this License and the original versions
-  of those notices and disclaimers.  In case of a disagreement between
-  the translation and the original version of this License or a notice
-  or disclaimer, the original version will prevail.
-  If a section in the Document is Entitled "Acknowledgements",
-  "Dedications", or "History", the requirement (section 4) to Preserve
-  its Title (section 1) will typically require changing the actual
-  title.
-  You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Document except
-  as expressly provided for under this License.  Any other attempt to
-  copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Document is void, and will
-  automatically terminate your rights under this License.  However,
-  parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this
-  License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
-  parties remain in full compliance.
-  The Free Software Foundation may publish new, revised versions
-  of the GNU Free Documentation License from time to time.  Such new
-  versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may
-  differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.  See
-  http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/.
-  Each version of the License is given a distinguishing version number.
-  If the Document specifies that a particular numbered version of this
-  License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the option of
-  following the terms and conditions either of that specified version or
-  of any later version that has been published (not as a draft) by the
-  Free Software Foundation.  If the Document does not specify a version
-  number of this License, you may choose any version ever published (not
-  as a draft) by the Free Software Foundation.
-  ADDENDUM: How to use this License for your documents
-  To use this License in a document you have written, include a copy of
-  the License in the document and put the following copyright and
-  license notices just after the title page:
-      Copyright (c)  YEAR  YOUR NAME.
-      Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document
-      under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2
-      or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation;
-      with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover Texts.
-      A copy of the license is included in the section entitled "GNU
-      Free Documentation License".
-  If you have Invariant Sections, Front-Cover Texts and Back-Cover Texts,
-  replace the "with...Texts." line with this:
-      with the Invariant Sections being LIST THEIR TITLES, with the
-      Front-Cover Texts being LIST, and with the Back-Cover Texts being LIST.
-  If you have Invariant Sections without Cover Texts, or some other
-  combination of the three, merge those two alternatives to suit the
-  situation.
-  If your document contains nontrivial examples of program code, we
-  recommend releasing these examples in parallel under your choice of
-  free software license, such as the GNU General Public License,
-  to permit their use in free software.
