if you are only interested in creating network packets
which could rais an alert then maybe you should take
a look at fpg (false-positive-generator) which is part
of FLoP:


This little program will try to create a network
packet based on snort rules. Currently not all options
are useable, especially pcre, byte_test and byte_jump
do not work.

But note: To create TCP alerts you have to disable the
stream4 preprocessor. Otherwise all packets get discarded
because they are not part of an established session. But
of course ICMP, IP and UDP should still generate alerts.

Best regards
