Re: Clarification required in the iperf_self application

Hi Udita,

I use this app with Xen to test the mirage tcp/ip stack.  I haven't tried it with tun/tap on unix, though your steps seem right and it should have worked.  I'll look into it and let you know.

Hello All,

I am trying to make the iperf_self application run which is present in the mirage-skeleton. I have used the 4.00.1+mirage-unix version.

I tried to run the app using the commands:

mirari configure --unix iperf_self.conf
mirari build --unix iperf_self.conf
sudo ./mir-iperf_self

Before executing these commands, I also used the ocaml-tuntap to create the tap interfaces and then assigned IP addresses to the 2 interfaces:

sudo ./tunctl.native add tap1
sudo ./tunctl.native add tap2
sudo ifconfig tap1 netmask
sudo ifconfig tap2 netmask

I saw that only the iperf server was being set up on a tap interface, but not the iperf client. I then modified the code iperf_self.ml a little; now both the server and the client are being set up on two different tap interfaces.

After the iperf client is set up, the function "iperfclient" is called in the code. The "iperfclient" function then makes use of the pcb.connect function as follows:

lwt conn = Net.Tcp.Pcb.connect tt ~dest_ip:ip ~dest_port:port in

However, I do not see the SYN messages being transmitted to the server from the client (using tcpdump on the interfaces).

Could anyone please point out if I have missed anything here? Or is there something else that has to be done too?

Many Thanks,
