    a raw socket allows instead of the operating system deciding and managing tcp, udp, icmp or other protocols, you will manage them yourself. this means you have a lot more power and can use the protocol directly and do many more things (including evil ones ; ) ) a sample program is ping which needs to take direct advantage of creating and sending icmp packets to work. it uses a raw socket for this.

    good tutorial: http://fsix.net/files/raw_socket.txt

    Thanks alot, I've been looking for a good tutorial on the subject.

    But what about the Data Link, does the raw socket control this layer as well, or is it just riding it?

    If so, how can I control this layer?


    Thanks again.
