PiPG - Raspberry Pi Network Packet Generator

Welcome to PiPG

PiPG is a powerful and yet simple Raspberry Pi Network Packet Generator. With PiPG you can now fabricate custom network packets and send via any Network Interface. Supports all kinds of standard Network Ports (Linux Kernel driver generated) such as Physical Network Interface ports, and an array of virtual ports such as loopback, tun/tap, bridge, etc. PiPG is a part of The TOFFEE Project research.

Download PiPG (complete MicroSD Image):

indispensable tool for:

  • Network Debugging, Testing and Performance analysis

  • Network Software Development
  • Compliance Testing
  • Ethical Hackers

you can generate the following test traffic:

  • L2-Bridging/Slow protocols: STP, LACP, OAM, LLDP, EAP, etc
  • Routing protocols: RIPv1, RIPv2, IGMPv1, IGMPv2, OSPF, IS-IS, EIGRP, HSRP, VRRP, etc
  • Proprietary protocols: CISCO, etc
  • Generic: IPv4 TCP/UDP, etc
  • Malformed random packets

Installation and Setup:

The download PiPG tar-ball is a complete ready-to-use disk image of Raspberry Pi OS in which PiPG is pre-installed. You can download the binary (the install image above), un-tar it and install on a microSD card which is around larger than or equal to 16GB capacity. Since I built this PiPG image on a 8GB microSD card. You can follow the standard official Raspberry Pi guide for general Raspberry Pi OS image install steps: Installing operating system images

Buy in Amazon:

PiPG UI: You can access the PiPG UI via browser as shown below.
The default username is: root and the password is: welcome
The default Raspberry Pi OS login username and password is: pi and the password is: raspberry
URL: http://localhost

For installation, setup and overall usage, kindly watch my Youtube video below:

Dedicated Raspberry Pi Network Console Port:

You can optionally have a dedicated Network Console port for your Raspberry Pi PiPG device. So that you can remotely access the PiPG web UI and configure the same, while sending the generated packets via other dedicated test/alternate ports. To learn more about the same, kindly watch my detailed Youtube video below:

Here are some of the screenshots of the PiPG-v1.0.26:

DIY TOFFEE WAN Optimization Device with Intel Celeron Mini PC ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is a step-by-step DIY to build your own Intel based Mini PC WAN Optimization Device with TOFFEE. I chose this below Intel Celeron Mini PC since it is fan-less aluminium case and as well it has 2 dedicated inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports. You can use one for LAN Network and one for WAN Network.

Why TOFFEE is forked from TrafficSqueezer ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TrafficSqueezer is an open-source WAN Optimization project. TrafficSqueezer is mainly a research project which is started around mid-2006. It is initially started as a research (or prototype) code even before it is officially registered in Sourceforge.net. But this code is just primitive user-space raw socket modules. This is later refined and a pre-alpha version is created. Followed by which Alpha release. This prototype code is moved from user-space to Linux Kernel (Kernel Space) and then the journey begin in terms of making a serious WAN Optimization solution. Once the pre-beta and beta releases are complete the mainstream series is started.

Replacing in Lab Intel Core i7 5820K Desktop PC with Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
As a research experiment I replaced my Intel Core i7 5820K desktop PC with my Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC as my everyday desktop system. This is an attempt to reduce my overall monthly power consumption. As well an attempt to do feasibility tests and research to know how far Mini PC will dominate the market in future and to study the real potential of Mini PCs.

Introducing TrueBench - a high resolution CPU benchmarking system ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TrueBench is an unique open-source benchmarking system in which the core system performance and efficiency parameters are measured at extreme high resolution in the order of several million/billion µ-seconds for a given specific task. TrueBench is a part of The TOFFEE Project research. With TrueBench Raspberry Pi 3, Raspberry Pi 2B, Raspberry Pi 2 and other embedded SoC devices are benchmarked and you can do a comparative analysis with standard mainstream x86 devices.

Live demo - Data Transfer - High bandwidth to Low bandwidth ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
I always wanted to do some real experiments and research on packet flow patterns from High-bandwidth to Low-bandwidth networks via networking devices. This is something can be analyzed via capturing Network stack buffer data and other parameters, bench-marking, and so on. But eventually the data-transfer nature and other aspects is often contaminated due to the underlying OS and the way Network stack is implemented. So to understand the nature of packet flow from Higher to Lower bandwidth and vice-versa such as Lower to higher bandwidth, I thought I experiment with various tools and things which physically we can observe this phenomena.

Here is my first software development update of TOFFEE-Butterscotch. In my first TOFFEE-Butterscotch news update I have introduced about TOFFEE-Butterscotch research, project specifications, use-cases, etc. Introducing TOFFEE-Butterscotch Alerts: These are simple packet counters which corresponds to the filter type. For example if the incoming TCP-SYN packets are blocked then its corresponding alert counter will increment whenever such a packet arrives and gets filtered (dropped).
