Bug#457384: ITP: netsend -- a speedy filetransfer and network diagnostic program
I have already completed packaging of current SVN revision 203. It is
lintian and linda clean and builds under Etch and Sid (through
pbuilder). I will upload it to http://mentors.debian.net as soon as I
get the ITP bug# for the changelog file.

Netsend transmits and receives files. It is highly configurable and
offers the transport protocols TCP, DCCP, UDP, UDPLITE and SCTP using
either IPv4 or IPv6 on the network layer. The cluster protocol TIPC
is also supported.
The user is able to tweak various options of the Linux network stack
to gain maximum performance. While this is not needed for trivial
filetransfer, it is valuable for network protocol performance testing.
