I have two computers, one with Windows and another with FreeDOS. I want to generate UDP packets on the Windows PC and receive and view the contents of the package on a computer with FreeDOS.

Dude, firstly this sounds very much like a programming question so should really be on our sister site stackoverflow.com, secondly you've given us maybe 1-2% of the information we'd need to help you anyway. Thirdly...why? no really, why are you doing this? Is it homework or something? –  Chopper3 Oct 26 '10 at 12:11
i do not want to do that with proggraming language, i want to check whether the UDP protocol on the machine with FreeDOS –  Xaver Oct 26 '10 at 12:19
Why not just install a packet sniffer on the Windows machine and watch the outgoing packets? Or use Linux on the other machine with tcpdump or wireshark on the receiving end? –  Bart Silverstrim Oct 26 '10 at 12:21
please tell me the name of free snifer with an easy interface and with port for dos on the other machine only dos installed. –  Xaver Oct 26 '10 at 12:33
What about using a small Linux bootable disc to do this on the other machine? Part of what Chopper may have been alluding to was why the DOS requirement. There are a number of mini-distros of Linux available, or you can put wireshark on the Windows machine and watch outgoing packets. –  Bart Silverstrim Oct 26 '10 at 12:45

You can probably do everything your looking for and more using the now venerable SendIP tool.
