"From the user point of view, hping3 should be both simpler and more powerful, assuming that there will be two different classes of users. Programmers will be able to exploit the full power of a real programming language and a flexible packet construction/analysis sytem. On the other hand, it should be much easier for nondevelopers [to] run hping3 scripts developed by others than to use hping2. For example, one could develop a hping3 script to audit a firewall without doing all the common stuff by hand.
