GTP Echo Scanner



This module sends UDP GTP (GTP-U) echo requests to the target RHOSTS and reports on which ones respond, thus identifying General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) servers. This module does not support scanning with SCTP.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/scanner/gprs/gtp_echo
msf auxiliary(gtp_echo) > show actions
msf auxiliary(gtp_echo) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(gtp_echo) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(gtp_echo) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
