I'm looking for a free working tool to generate layer 2 Ethernet frames. It would be nice to have a tool like iperf or similar (iperf doesn't support link layer).

In this question, I can find a few tools for layer 2, but none of them seems to be working under windows (and free of course).

Update: Scapy doesn't work with Win 7 64-bit, so don't suggest it.

  • Welcome to Software Recommendations! We will need much more information to give good recommendations here – asking for "a tool like X" is never giving enough details, even if linked. You should always list your requirements explicitly. Please see How to ask for an alternative to some software and the questions linked to it for details. – Izzy Nov 21 '18 at 16:51
  • Welcome aboard. I notice that you say that you are "looking for a free working tool", but use the open-source tag. If you really just need free and don't need the source code, then the gratis tag generally attracts more answers – Mawg says reinstate Monica Nov 22 '18 at 11:43
  • I have used Scapy with Windows 7/64 & 10/64 - you do need to follow the Windows install instructions very carefully. – Steve Barnes Nov 22 '18 at 18:50
