I hope you don't mind my asking this, but I've been looking for different types of TCP/IP protocol samples. I search in internet (,, …) but these samples are not completely for my study.

For example, in RTP protocol, I need all type of video (H263, H264, …) and voices (G711, G729, …) that can be sent over RTP. Does a software exist to simulate packets of these protocol and capture them with wireshark?

Hello, I guess the general answer will be no, that software does not exist or it may not be open source, but you may take a look to scapy in python and create your own packets, tools...etc.

When I need application level test data, I usually configure systems to generate the traffic. So for instance when I need SIP/RTP, I build a VM with an open source PBX and use a SoftPhone client to connect. It might be some overkill, but at least it will be data that resembles real-life data.
