[Fwd: dtn-interest digest, Vol 1 #350 - 1 msg]

Here's an interesting message from the DTN mailing list about a DTN
implementation on LinkSys wireless routers:

Dear All,

Just to let you know that together with Felipe Gil Castineira (University
of Vigo), we've ported the DTN ref implementation on a Linksys WRT54G
loaded with openwrt.

All the gory details and the files are available from

Best wishes,

Laurent Franck

PS: I noticed that I forgot to post the modified source code. I'll do this
as soon as I got back to work on Monday.

packETH 1.3

This program looks like it might be useful for some of us in the group.
It allows you to create and send any possible packet or sequence of
packets on the ethernet.

IPv6 is now a reality!!


I think this is a significant step forward in Internet evolution. Global
Crossing has deployed IPv6 in their network with Lucent's help. I think this
will have a significant impact from a research perspective.
