I want to debug a network program when it encounters problems
(timeouted connections, delays, etc). So I need to be able to
configure an interface with things like "drop 50 % of packets directed
to port 80".
On FreeBSD, there is dummynet
(http://info.iet.unipi.it/~luigi/ip_dummynet/) which seems to do
everything I want but does not appear to be available on NetBSD.
On Linux, there is the "random" plugin of Netfilter
less featureful but probably sufficient for me.
Any NetBSD solution?
