Hi guy,

You should glance at the Honeyd web site :

Honeyd, from Niels Provos, is a free powerfull solution to create a safe
playground for a fan club of nmap end users.

It will use nmap (and xprobe !) files to simulate a stack IP.

For example, if you want that looks like being a playstation 2,
that's okay u'll need 2 or 3 lines to add in the configuration file. Oh
now you want to add a Windows XP box, just ask Honeyd !

Just try and it'll give you ideas to easily play with random networks.

Have fun,
