NAME

NetPacket::IGMP - Assemble and disassemble IGMP (Internet Group Mangement Protocol) packets.

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 1.4.1

SYNOPSIS



  use NetPacket::IGMP;

  $igmp_obj = NetPacket::IGMP->decode($raw_pkt);
  $igmp_pkt = NetPacket::IGMP->encode(params...);   # Not implemented
  $igmp_data = NetPacket::IGMP::strip($raw_pkt);



DESCRIPTION

NetPacket::IGMP provides a set of routines for assembling and disassembling packets using IGMP (Internet Group Mangement Protocol).

    Methods

NetPacket::IGMP->decode([RAW PACKET]) Decode the raw packet data given and return an object containing instance data. This method will quite happily decode garbage input. It is the responsibility of the programmer to ensure valid packet data is passed to this method.
NetPacket::IGMP->encode(param => value) Return an IGMP packet encoded with the instance data specified. Not implemented.

    Functions

NetPacket::IGMP::strip([RAW PACKET]) Return the encapsulated data (or payload) contained in the IGMP packet. This function returns undef as there is no encapsulated data in an IGMP packet.

    Instance data

The instance data for the NetPacket::IGMP object consists of the following fields.
version The IGMP version of this packet.
type The message type for this packet.
len The length (including length of header) in bytes for this packet.
subtype The message subtype for this packet.
cksum The checksum for this packet.
group_addr The group address specified in this packet.
data The encapsulated data (payload) for this packet.

    Exports

default none
exportable IGMP_VERSION_RFC998 IGMP_VERSION_RFC1112 IGMP_HOST_MQUERY IGMP_HOST_MREPORT IGMP_IP_NO_HOSTS IGMP_IP_ALL_HOSTS IGMP_IP_ALL_ROUTERS
tags The following tags group together related exportable items.
:strip Import the strip function igmp_strip.
:versions IGMP_VERSION_RFC998 IGMP_VERSION_RFC1112
:msgtypes IGMP_HOST_MQUERY IGMP_HOST_MREPORT
:group_addrs IGMP_IP_NO_HOSTS IGMP_IP_ALL_HOSTS IGMP_IP_ALL_ROUTERS
:ALL All the above exportable items.

EXAMPLE

The following script dumps UDP frames by IP address and UDP port to standard output.



  #!/usr/bin/perl -w

  use strict;
  use Net::PcapUtils;
  use NetPacket::Ethernet qw(:strip);
  use NetPacket::IP;
  use NetPacket::IGMP;

  sub process_pkt {
      my($arg, $hdr, $pkt) = @_;

      my $ip_obj = NetPacket::IP->decode(eth_strip($pkt));
      my $igmp_obj = NetPacket::IGMP->decode($ip_obj->{data});

      print("$ip_obj->{src_ip} -> $ip_obj->{dest_ip} ",
            "$igmp_obj->{type}/$igmp_obj->{subtype} ",
            "$igmp_obj->{group_addr}\n");
  }

  Net::PcapUtils::loop(\&process_pkt, FILTER => igmp);



TODO

Implement encode() function
