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.
