  2. [Please note that licensing, compiling, usage and other documentation can be
  3. found in the docs subdirectory.]
  4. If you have a question or think you are experiancing a bug, it is important
  5. that you provide enough information for us to help you. Failure to provide
  6. enough information will likely cause your email to be ignored or get an
  7. annoyed reply from the author.
  8. If your problem has to do with COMPILING tcpreplay:
  9. - Version of tcpreplay you are trying to compile
  10. - Platform (Red Hat Linux 9 on x86, Solaris 7 on SPARC, OS X on PPC, etc)
  11. - ./configure arguments
  12. - Contents of config.log
  13. - Output from 'make'
  14. - Any additional information you think that would be useful.
  15. If your problem has to do with RUNNING tcpreplay or one of the sub-tools:
  16. - Version information (output of -V)
  17. - Command line used (options and arguments)
  18. - Platform (Red Hat Linux 9 on Intel, Solaris 7 on SPARC, etc)
  19. - Make & model of the network card(s) and driver(s) version
  20. - Error message (if available) and/or description of problem
  21. - If possible, attach the pcap file used (compressed with bzip2 or gzip
  22. preferred)
  23. - The core dump or backtrace if available
  24. - Detailed description of your problem or what you are trying to accomplish
  25. Note: The author of tcpreplay primarily uses OS X; hence, if you're reporting
  26. an issue on another platform, it is important that you give very detailed
  27. information as I may not be able to reproduce your issue.
  28. You are also strongly encouraged to read the extensive documentation (man
  29. pages, FAQ, documents in /docs and email list archives) BEFORE posting to the
  30. tcpreplay-users email list:
  32. Lastly, please don't email the author directly with your questions. Doing so
  33. prevents others from potentially helping you and your question/answer from
  34. showing up in the list archives.
  35. Thanks,
  36. Aaron (tcpreplay author)
