The best place to get help or report a bug is the Tcpreplay-Users
Please do not email the author directly as it prevents others from
learning from your questions.
One of the most frustrating things for any developer trying to help
a user with a problem is not enough information. Please be sure to
include at minimum the following information, however any additional
information you feel may be helpful will be appreciated.
- Version information (output of -V)
- Command line used (options and arguments)
- Platform (Red Hat Linux 9 on Intel, Solaris 7 on SPARC, etc)
- Error message (if available) and/or description of problem
- If possible, attach the pcap file used (compressed with bzip2 or gzip
- The core dump or backtrace if available
Let us know! Many of the features exist today because users like you
asked for them. To make a feature request, email the tcpreplay-users
mailing list (see above).
I'm always willing to include new features or bug fixes submitted
by users. You may email me directly or the tcpreplay-users mailing
list. Please do not use the Patch Tracker on the tcpreplay
SourceForge web site. But before you start working on adding a feature
or fixing a bug in tcpreplay, please make sure you checkout the latest
source code from the Subversion repository. Patches against released
versions are almost surely not going to apply cleanly if at all.
Please note that while I'm always interested in patches, I may rewrite
some or all of your submission to maintain a consistent coding style.
- Be aware that submitting a patch, you are assigning your copyright
to me. If this is not acceptable to you, then do not send
me the patch! I have people assign their copyright to me to help prevent
licensing issues that may crop up in the future.
- Please provide a description of what your patch does!
- Comment your code! I won't use code I can't understand.
- Make sure you are patching a branch that is still being maintained.
Generally that means that most recent stable and development branches
(2.0 and 3.0 at the time of this writing).
- Make sure you are patching against the most recent release for that
- Please submit your patch in the unified diff format so I can
better understand what you're changing.
- Please provide any relevant personal information you'd like listed
in the CREDITS file.
