Network Protocol Development Tools and Techniques for FreeBSD

(Please note one-week delay from our regular meeting date.

*Our Topic:*

While computers have gotten faster and more powerful the tools we use to 
develop network protocols, such as TCP, UDP, IPv4 and IPv6 have not. 
Most network protocols are developed, in C, in the kernel, and require a 
lot of work to test. Over the past year or so I have been working with 
virtual machines, a couple of pieces of open source software, and begun 
developing a library for use in protocol testing. This talk will cover 
three topics:

   1. Developing and testing kernel code with Virtual Machines
   2. Finding good tests for networking code
   3. Packet Construction Set (PCS) a new library for writing protocol

The talk will be webcast at rtsp:// 
<rtsp://>and recorded. It will be made 
available afterwards at http://www.freebsd.org/~julian/BAFUG/talks/
