Bug#457384: ITP: netsend -- a speedy filetransfer and network diagnostic program

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

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.


* Package name : netsend
* License : GPL
* URL : http://netsend.berlios.de/
* SVN : http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/netsend/trunk

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.
