      In the title and tags should be Nemesis rather than Nemisis.

      I’ve used Nemesis in the past, while teaching an IDS class. It’s a pretty good tool for creating arbitrary packets. I usually set up whatever header and payload the students need to detect, then just run it in a shell loop so it sends the same packets over and over. Works like a charm, and it’s pretty simple to get going.
