Description : make a customized traffic over network
Network program written by William Richard Stevens and used in exemples in his
book called "TCP/IP Illustrated - Volume I".
It can be used both as a client and as a server and can send both TCP and UDP
packets. It works in 4 modes:
- client: establishes a tcp connection to server's echo service.
- server: runs a service on local socket (IP:Port). The server will copy data
received from the client to STDOUT and copy data input from STDIN to
- source client: writes "x" buffers of "y" bytes of data to the discard
service on server.
- source server: discards any data received on a especific port.
