Net::ARP can be used to create and send ARP packets and to get the mac address
of an ethernet interface or IP address.
Net::Analysis is a suite of modules that parse tcpdump files,
reconstruct TCP sessions from the packets, and provide a very
lightweight framework for writing protocol anaylsers.
Net::DLookup performs domain lookups for 2-letter and 3-letter top level
domains. It also verifies the validity of domain names by checking
punctuation, length, metacharacters, etc..
Net::Write provides a portable interface to open a network interface, and be
able to write raw data directly to the network.
The net-ping library provides a ping interface for Ruby. It includes separate
TCP, HTTP, LDAP, ICMP, UDP, WMI (for Windows) and external ping classes.
Net::Server is an extensible, generic Perl server engine. Net::Server combines
the good properties from Net::Daemon (0.34), NetServer::Generic (1.03), and
Net::FTPServer (1.0), and also from various concepts in the Apache Webserver.
Net::Server attempts to be a generic server as in Net::Daemon and
NetServer::Generic. It includes with it the ability to run as an inetd process
(Net::Server::INET), a single connection server (Net::Server or
Net::Server::Single), a forking server (Net::Server::Fork), or as a preforking
server (Net::Server::PreFork). In all but the inetd type, the server provides
the ability to connect to one or to multiple server ports.
Net_Sieve is a PEAR class which handles talking to timsieved.
Provides an API to talk to the timsieved server that comes with Cyrus
IMAPd. Can be used to install, remove, mark active, etc. SIEVE scripts.
Growl is a MACOSX application that listen to notifications sent by
applications and displays them on the desktop using different display
styles. Net_Growl offers the possibility to send notifications to Growl
from your PHP application through network communication using UDP.
The PEAR::Net_Ident implements Identification Protocol according
to RFC 1413.
The Identification Protocol (a.k.a., "ident", a.k.a., "the Ident
Protocol") provides a means to determine the identity of a user
of a particular TCP connection. Given a TCP port number pair, it
returns a character string which identifies the owner of that
connection on the server's system.
This package validates and cleanly formats Media Access Control (MAC)
addresses. The Net_MAC class can also import a list of MAC address
vendors and store them in a database which the class can then use to
identify vendors of any MAC address.
