Scapy Python Example

In this example we understand how to use scapy and python to create a TCP syn packet. The code is named TCP Syn sender and can be used in scenarios where you need to send a TCP Syn packet programatically.

The tool is part of our Python Scapy Network Programming and Automation Course on Udemy. Take the course to get detailed video explanation of the code and execution.

The screenshot of the code is shown below.

The code explanation is provided below.

1. The first line of code imports scapy into the Python file.
2. The second line takes the destination IP address from the user as an input.
3. The third line takes the port number as the input. The port number refers to the destination port number to which the packet has to be send.
4. The fourth line creates a TCP packet.
5. The fifth line assigns the flag in the packer as ‘S’ This signifies a TCP Syn packet.
6. The sixth line assigns the destination port number with the port number recieved from the user in code line 3.
7. The seventh line creates an IP header.
8. The eighth line creates an IP header object.
9. The ninth line associates the destination IP address with the IP address recieved from the user in code line 2.
10.The tenth line associates the source address with, which is the sender PC IP address.
11. The eleventh line sends the packet on the network.
