PiPG - Raspberry Pi Network Packet Generator ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
PiPG is a powerful and yet simple Raspberry Pi Network Packet Generator. With PiPG you can now fabricate custom network packets and send via any Network Interface. Supports all kinds of standard Network Ports (Linux Kernel driver generated) such as Physical Network Interface ports, and an array of virtual ports such as loopback, tun/tap, bridge, etc. indispensable tool for: Network Debugging, Testing and Performance analysis Network Administrators Students Network R&D Protocol Analysis and Study Network Software Development Compliance Testing Ethical Hackers you can generate the following test traffic: L2-Bridging/Slow protocols: STP, LACP, OAM, LLDP, EAP, etc Routing protocols: RIPv1, RIPv2, IGMPv1, IGMPv2, OSPF, IS-IS, EIGRP, HSRP, VRRP, etc Proprietary protocols: CISCO, etc Generic: IPv4 TCP/UDP, etc Malformed random packets

TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) deployment with web-proxy cache ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
If you want to deploy TOFFEE along with a web-proxy cache (such as Squid Proxy) you can deploy the same as shown below. TOFFEE does not cache files. TOFFEE does packet level network optimization. So if you want caching your web content you can use transparent mode web-proxy cache intercepting your WAN links. A web-proxy may reduce amount of data being processed (optimized) within these TOFFEE devices and so reduce the CPU overheads and improve its performance.

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 15-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I completed doing all the changes which are meant for the new upcoming TOFFEE-Mocha release. I have increased the resolution and the range of all factor variables. Instead 1 to 10 range now they have a range of 1 to 30. Unlike before the value 1 means it is lot more intense (or in some cases less intense) and the uppermost value 30 means lot less intense (or in some cases lot intense).

TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization software development - Update: 19-Aug-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
This is my next software development update of TOFFEE-DataCenter which I am working since past few weeks. I was very busy in implementing the core TOFFEE-DataCenter components along with prototyping, benchmarking, implementing and testing the same. However today is the first time ever I did a fresh new CLI interface for the upcoming new TOFFEE-DataCenter.

TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) optimized Satellite (inflight/marine/defense) ISP Networks ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TOFFEE Optimized Satellite ISP Network: TOFFEE/TOFFEE-DataCenter can be used to optimize Satellite Networks (Satellite based Internet Networks, VoIP, Data, private leased-links) as shown. Ground station transponders can be connected via array of TOFFEE Devices and in the remote CPE can have dedicated or inbuilt TOFFEE with which you can establish a WAN Optimized Satellite Network Tunnel as shown.
