    PacketSquare (CapEdit) is a free and open-source pcap-based network protocol testing tool.[1] It is used for testing network devices, including intrusion prevention systems, firewalls, routers, network switches.

    Currently PacketSquare runs on Linux. It uses the GTK+ widget toolkit to implement its user interface, and is written in C. It is released under the terms of the GNU General Public License v3.

    Functionality[edit]

    PacketSquare works by editing protocol fields of the saved packet capture file and replaying. In addition to editing and replaying it supports many features for extrapolation of captured traffic.

    History[edit]

    PacketSquare is an open source community started in April 2010 by Vijay Mohan, Sushant Gupta and Anant Dixit for developing computer network testing tools.[2] The Community is currently working on CapEdit, used for testing wide range of network security and monitoring products.
