While I am waiting for my new Beryl units to arrive, I was researching similar utility like Mac OS X has to simulate various network conditions for testing. I found this project dummynet. Looking at Github it seems like OpenWRT support is listed.
- Did anyone tried it?
- Do I have to manually install it from Github, or is there a package for it that I could install?
- Does it work?
- Would development consider adding this to Application settings with simple configurations like Mac OS X does above? Is it possible for me to create a UI plugin under Applications?
- Perhaps there is some other better utility like that someone can recommend?
Most of my development is networking applications. Having such an option, where I can drop the router in between and play with different network scenarios is very important. Perhaps there are others like me?
