In today’s Environment network are increasing day by day to maintain the situations is complex because an administrator couldn’t be find the bugs of bugs primitive kind of tools. To handle this type of situations proposed a new technology called automatic test packet generation (ATPG) is a systematic approach for testing and debugging networks like LAN & WAN and it reads the router configuration and generates the independent device model. It generates minimum test packets and examines every protocol in network. These test packets are flow in sequence and find out the failures of a localized separated mechanism. ATPG can detected both incorrect firewall rule and perform problem. ATPG have static checking or fault localization.
