Can anyone provide some packet trace for below ICMPv4 messages ?


I been searching for real packets traces on below messages for a while but couldn't find any. The current solution is to change type/code manually and fill data portion with something random data.

would appreciate if anyone has some sample packet trace and is willing to share. thanks in advance!

ICMP information request/reply
ICMP timestamp and timestamp reply
ICMP address mask request/reply
ICMP router advertisement
ICMP alternative host address
