LANforge-FIRE Cookbook

The LANforge-FIRE Cookbook provides a set of high-level examples of how to setup useful test scenarios in LANforge-FIRE for traffic generation. Each example intends to give the reader a brief introduction to the test scenario and a set of step-by-step instructions on how to use the LANforge-GUI to configure the test.

All of the following examples will work on Linux systems running the LANforge software with the LANforge kernel and a sufficient license. If you are running another Linux kernel, you will not be able to exactly duplicate some of the examples, but there are usually work-arounds available to assist you. Please contact us at support@candelatech.com if you have any questions.

If you are using the Windows version of LANforge, you will have to modify ports using the Windows utilities.
