A-B TCP Protocol Message Simulator for testing

I have a client working in mixed Allen Bradley and Omni environments who would like to have software that meets these requirements:

* runs on Win/XP on a laptop
* generates "master" polling messages on Ethernet preferably (essentially simulating existence of A-B PLC)
* is easy to setup for a testing scenario in-office and in the field
* preferably can generate other protocol messages as well

As an example, he often uses mdbus ( software to setup his laptop to poll an Omni Flow Computer via Modbus/TCP. Thus he can test communication and programming configurations. He'd like to be able to "simulate" the existence of an A-B PLC on the network as well.

Any recommendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance....

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but check this thread.
