"echoping" is a small program to test (approximatively) performances of a remote host by sending it TCP "echo" (or other protocol) packets.
To install it, see the INSTALL file. Or type "./configure && make && sudo make install" if you're in a hurry :-) Several operating systems have echoping already packaged (Debian, FreeBSD, NetBSD). Download, if you wish. (Or you may prefer access the latest developments via CVS: the module is named "SRC".) You may be interested in SourceForge's page about echoping, with the bug reports, etc.
To use it, simply type:
Here are some key features of "echoping":
Supports IPv6 as well as IPv4,
Supports IDN (Unicode domain names like caf?.gennic.net),
uses the protocols echo, discard, chargen or HTTP,
can use cryptographic connections with HTTP,
uses UDP instead of TCP for the protocols which accept it (like echo),
can repeat the test and display various measures about it,
can use T/TCP on systems which support it.
