I have created a patch for NetPIPE version 3.6.2 that makes it
work with IPv6. If you're unfamiliar with NetPIPE then jump
to here: http://www.scl.ameslab.gov/netpipe/
In short NetPIPE is a cool tool for generating packets and
stressing/testing networks. I suggest reading the papers they
have on their web site.
I've submitted this patch to the nice folks at ameslab as
well, and will be using it in my own work on locking down the
IPv6 code in FreeBSD.
Apply the patch like this:
patch -p0 < ~/netpipe.patch
This will generate the program NPtcp6 which must be run as a
client> ./NPtcp6 -h <client IPv6/name>
You can specify IPv6 style addresses such as ::1 etc. for
the -h argument. I have not tested the gethostbyname2() call
yet as I'm trapped behind a NAT at the moment. It ought to
Bugs with the IPv6 version of this code should be sent to me,
and not to the nice folks at ameslab who wrote the original.
