hi experts,

I'm looking for a web based or console based tool to test a ipsec site tunnel. The end hosts are both Linux servers.

I once used a Linux console based based tool where one hosts listens and the other hosts sends a test file. Unfortunately I have forgotten the command and procedure.

thanks in advance

Hi,

the most versatile tool for such purposes is most probably netcat:
http://manpages.unixforum.co.uk/man-pages/linux/suse-linux-10.1/1/netcat-man-page.html

Just issue on the "listening" side:

nc -l -p nnnnn

with nnnnn being an arbitrary port number,

and on the sending side try someting like

cat /some/file | nc receiving_host nnnnn

with receiving host being the host name of the listening host and nnnnn being the port number of the listening port.
