Topic: New OpenWRT package: etherpuppet
I would like to share with you my packaging for EtherPuppet,
EtherPuppet is a small program for Linux that will create a virtual interface (TUN/TAP) on one machine from the ethernet interface of another machine through a TCP connection. Everything seen by the real interface will be seen by the virtual one. Everything sent to the virtual interface will be emitted by the real one.
I find it very handy for one-off troubleshooting packet sniffing sessions, when setting up a monitor port on a switch is too much hassle, or even impossible.
I have tested the built package on Attitude Adjustment (trunk) running on a DIR-825-B2 router (as puppet) and Ubuntu 10.10 X64 (as master) and it works wonderfully well.
I have opened an enhancement ticket (#8913) in Trac which has the Makefile.
Hope you like it, hope that it will be included in OpenWRT :-)
