    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.


    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.


    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.
