You can use packet crafting tools such as hping or nemesis to create 
your own packets for NIDS testing. Nessus is a vulnerability scanner 
that is also useful for testing NIDS. For complete control over the 
packets use hping or nemesis, for automated testing of known 
vulnerabilities (and thus snort signatures) you can use Nessus.
