Installation
TOFFEE-Mocha contains two parts namely web-based GUI and the custom Linux Kernel which contains TOFFEE-Mocha within it. So here are the step by step instructions you can follow to install the same.
Step 1: Install the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Desktop (64-bit) on a fresh system.
Step 2: Before installing TOFFEE-Mocha GUI you have to install all the prerequisite dependencies. As a part of dependencies TOFFEE-Mocha needs MySQL (now MariaDB, PHP, and other applications). So make sure device is connected to internet. The script below will install everything and configures MySQL TOFFEE-Mocha GUI database and tables for you. So enter into the .../gui folder, then execute the script as shown below:

kiran@ubuntu-16:~/TOFFEE-Mocha-1.0.14-1-x86_64/gui$ ls
db_scripts.sql  etc  html  make_clean  make_clean.php  make_db_upgrade  make_install  make_install_deps  make_install.php  toffeemochad
kiran@ubuntu-16:~/TOFFEE-Mocha-1.0.14-1-x86_64/gui$
kiran@ubuntu-16:~/TOFFEE-Mocha-1.0.14-1-x86_64/gui$ sudo ./make_install_deps

After sometime it will install MySQL server and prompts the default password for the user root. Kindly enter the password "welcome" when it prompts for MySQL root password as shown below:
MySQL server defaut password

Step 3: Now you need to install the GUI web-pages in Apache web-root (such as in /var/www/html/toffee_mocha) and install the TOFFEE-Mocha Daemon. The script below does all these jobs:

kiran@ubuntu-16:~/TOFFEE-Mocha-1.0.14-1-x86_64/gui$ sudo ./make_install
Failed to stop toffeemochad.service: Unit toffeemochad.service not loaded.
Failed to stop toffeemochad.service: Unit toffeemochad.service not loaded.
Installing TOFFEE-Mocha GUI in (/var/www/html/toffee_mocha) Apache default webroot folder ...
cp: target '/var/www/html/toffee_mocha/.' is not a directory
Done !
Setting Appropriate Permissions in (/var/www/html/toffee_mocha) Apache default webroot folder ...
chmod: cannot access '/var/www/html/toffee_mocha/*': No such file or directory
Done !
kiran@ubuntu-16:~/TOFFEE-Mocha-1.0.14-1-x86_64/gui$

NOTE: Ignore any warnings and in few cases even any errors displayed.

Step 4: TOFFEE-Mocha Linux-Kernel Installation:
kindly install the following ".deb" binary files as shown below:

kiran@ubuntu-16:~/TOFFEE-Mocha-1.0.14-1-x86_64$ sudo dpkg -i linux-image-4.5.0-toffee-mocha-1.0.14_22-jun-2016_amd64.deb 
linux-headers-4.5.0-toffee-mocha-1.0.14_22-jun-2016_amd64.deb

Once it is done, you can reboot the system, boot in the new TOFFEE-Mocha Kernel and can configure and use the same.
NOTE: Ignore any warnings.

Configuration
Once you are done with Installation, you can restart the system and configure the same as shown below.
Now you can access the TOFFEE-Mocha GUI via your browser as shown below. The default username is: root and the password is: welcome

URL: http://localhost/toffee_mocha
TOFFEE_Mocha login

Once you login you will get this first HOME page. Since it is not yet configured and not yet active, there are no graphs populated in the home page.

Select your LAN Port.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since TOFFEE-Mocha device is a WAN emulator device you can configure any port as LAN port and WAN port. Swapping LAN and WAN ports in your deployment will not cause any issues.
TOFFEE_Mocha wizard LAN port

Select your WAN Port. As suggested in the note above, you can configure any port as WAN port.
TOFFEE_Mocha wizard WAN port

Now your TOFFEE-Mocha basic setup is over. Now you should get the confirmation page as shown below.
TOFFEE_Mocha wizard finish

Optionally you can now check various tabs under the Settings tab. For example the + Ports tab shows the status of various network ports and its corresponding Direction (such as LAN and WAN) and other generic port related information. Sometimes you can directly set port direction via this page, but it is highly recommended to use the TOFFEE-Mocha Wizard.

NOTE: TOFFEE-Mocha works within Linux based Layer-2 bridging module. And hence once TOFFEE-Mocha is configured via Wizard you should able to see the bridging port name as "toffee" as shown below. This bridging interface is created by the user-space TOFFEE-Mocha daemon automatically so that the Kernel-space TOFFEE-Mocha hooks, intercepts and optimizes the packets passing through standard Linux kernel bridge.
TOFFEE_Mocha ports

You can now view and confirm your settings via + Big Picture. Big Picture is a neat graphical illustration of your overall TOFFEE-Mocha settings. You can view any time as a reference and even print and file it as a record if you are a Network Admin.

Packet Delay Feature: As the name says you can add constant or dynamic packet delay on each packet passing through TOFFEE-Mocha. This will simulate slow speed WAN links. This will limit the rate of packets there by indirectly controlling the rate of bits-per-second data transmission. As one can understand this gives more finer and precise control over packets than the standard Linux QoS tc scripts. You can add inter-packet milliseconds and microseconds constant delay. As well you can add per-packet dynamic delay based on the size of the packet (i.e delay proportional to number of bytes per packets). Dynamic delay rate can be controlled by the dynamic delay factor variable. Dynamic delay is a unique feature through which you can simulate a kind of burst type traffic and so latency associated with the same. In any case you can use combination of both dynamic and constant delay parameters. The overall delay of the packet will be the total delay set by all these settings.

Packet Drop Feature: As the name says you can randomly drop few packets passing through TOFFEE-Mocha. This will simulate real worst-case WAN network scenarios such as mobile internet (3G/4G networks), Satellite Networks, inflight WiFi, marine internet, etc. You can control the packet drop rate with the random packet drop factor variable as shown below. The value 1 denotes 1 in every 10 random number range. And 2 denotes 1 in every 20 and so on. So higher the drop factor lesser is the probability of packets getting randomly dropped.

NOTE: Packets dropped this way will reflect in the TOFFEE-Mocha stats. You can see the bytes and packets received vs transmitted in the stats. As well the overall stats reports in the first TOFFEE-Mocha home page.

Once your complete setup is done, you can now monitor the TOFFEE-Mocha run-time live performance stats as show below:

VPN Network Optimization via TOFFEE WAN Optimization ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
VPN Networks may degrade network performance due to various packet processing overheads such as encryption and by adding extra network protocol header(s) (such as IPv4/IPv6, IPSec, etc). This may inflate near MTU sized packets and causes excessive packet fragmentation. Here are the few examples of packet processing involved in a VPN (or a VPN like) Tunnel. With TOFFEE you can optimize these packets even before they get processed on to a VPN device. TOFFEE optimizes packet contents (application payload and transport headers) so that these TOFFEE optimized packets when they get processed by VPN devices (or VPN software stack) they may never need further packet fragmentation. Here is a deployment scenario of TOFFEE with VPN devices.

Building my own CDN - choosing a web-hosting to deploy my CDN - Update: 28-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
The TOFFEE Project website is hosted on Inmotion Hosting. And so I am looking for alternate hosting provider to build my first CDN node. My plan is to make multiple sub-domains of my website such as cdn1.the-toffee-project.org, cdn2.the-toffee-project.org and point each of this corresponding subdomain(s) to various alternative web hosting servers geographically spread across the world. Sometimes choosing the same vendor for multiple CDN nodes may result multiple servers existing in the data-center. And this becomes an issue if there is some catastrophic network disaster.

Multi-dimensional (Multi-universe) Internet Technology - A Proposal ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Currently what we have is a single homogeneous (sort of) WWW Internet. Which we can consider as a single-dimensional network. What I propose is that we can create complete independent multiple Internets with each Internet having its own IP-address space, Domain namespace and an authority to manage Domain names. And these networks/Internets can be entirely IPv4 only based or IPv6 only based.

Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is a complete log of my lab battery purchase, service record which I maintain in Google drive. These I use for my home (or my family generic use) as well as a part of my home lab. I maintain a detailed log this way to monitor the failure rate of these batteries. This will allow me to select a specific brand/model which has higher success rate and to monitor any premature failure/expiry. The service log helps me to monitor and schedule the next service routine so that I can maintain these batteries in tip-top condition.

There are various techniques with which one can optimize their WAN Network Data. Any long distance communication can be considered as WAN Network. A decade ago any network connecting two countries, considered as a WAN network, and a network within a city as MAN and soon. But these days in general any long distance communication is considered as WAN Network. Such as your Mobile communication networks, Satellite networks, Space Networks (Deep space networks), Trans-Atlantic cable networks, etc.

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 18-June-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
In the previous update (17-Jun-2016) I discussed about the upcoming new Random Packet drop feature along with other completed features. Now I completed the entire TOFFEE-Mocha Random packet drop feature. I completed all the kernel components and the UI support of the same. And to make GUI settings more organized I split the earlier Basic-Settings page into two separate pages namely: Packet Drop and Packet Delay. So this way it is simple to understand settings according to their functionality.
