It's on my list and I'm not happy with the current status. Actually my 
time is very limited, but I'm most interested to get this back on track.

I do not have much experience with sending raw Ethernet packets on 
Linux, but I know how to do this on Windows (using the WinPCap lib). It 
shouldn't be too difficult to create a new Ethernet driver for Nut/OS to 
be used with the Linux emulation.

I'll try to help.
