NAME

Net::Packet::TCP - Transmission Control Protocol layer 4 object

SYNOPSIS

   use Net::Packet::Consts qw(:tcp);
   require Net::Packet::TCP;

   # Build a layer
   my $layer = Net::Packet::TCP->new(
      dst     => 22,
      options => "\x02\x04\x05\xb4", # MSS=1460
   );
   $layer->pack;

   print 'RAW: '.unpack('H*', $layer->raw)."\n";

   # Read a raw layer
   my $layer = Net::Packet::TCP->new(raw => $raw);

   print $layer->print."\n";
   print 'PAYLOAD: '.unpack('H*', $layer->payload)."\n"
      if $layer->payload;

DESCRIPTION

This modules implements the encoding and decoding of the TCP layer.

RFC: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc793.txt

See also Net::Packet::Layer and Net::Packet::Layer4 for other attributes and methods.

ATTRIBUTES

src
dst

Source and destination ports.

flags

TCP flags, see CONSTANTS.

win

The window size.

seq
ack

Sequence and acknowledgment numbers.

off

The size in number of words of the TCP header.

x2

Reserved field.

checksum

The TCP header checksum.

urp

Urgent pointer.

options

TCP options, as a hexadecimal string.

METHODS

new

Object constructor. You can pass attributes that will overwrite default ones. Default values:

src: getRandomHighPort()

dst: 0

seq: getRandom32bitsInt()

ack: 0

x2: 0

checksum: 0

urp: 0

options: ""

recv

Will search for a matching replies in framesSorted or frames from a Net::Packet::Dump object.

pack

Packs all attributes into a raw format, in order to inject to network. Returns 1 on success, undef otherwise.

unpack

Unpacks raw data from network and stores attributes into the object. Returns 1 on success, undef otherwise.

getHeaderLength

Returns the header length in bytes, not including TCP options.

getOptionsLength

Returns options length in bytes.

haveFlagFin
haveFlagSyn
haveFlagRst
haveFlagPsh
haveFlagAck
haveFlagUrg
haveFlagEce
haveFlagCwr

Returns 1 if the specified TCP flag is set in flags attribute, 0 otherwise.
