Thread: Wanted - A network delay simulator

    Wanted - A network delay simulator

    I've written an application that talks to some hardware via http. OK, so this isn't a game but what I'm after would be useful when I get around to adding network stuff to my work-in-progress one. What I'm after is some way to simulate delays on the internet. I guess I'm after some software that will delay packets and generally cause trouble so that I can see how my apps handle these issues. Has anyone used such a program ?

    Don't know of such a program, but if you download several torrents at full speed you will have packet delays for sure.

    I've been in contact with these people and have downloaded their 30 day trial software. I'll let you know if its any good. I noticed that Microsoft's XNA framework has built in support for testing network conditions. I might have a go at producing a utility that does something similar for us Delphi users

    Thanks for all your suggestions for delaying the packets. I also need a solution that will drop packets and mix up the order they arrive so I also need a more advanced solution than just a delay. Hopefully this trial application will provide what I'm after.

    TCP packets never mix up order btw.
