    Thanks for the heads-up, this looks like a useful project. I’ve recently been experimenting with 8.2 then adding the Quagga port. I’ve also used it to build and run the Dyanamips/Dynagen router emulator, it’s possible to connect the two together on one system.

    There are some extremely networking features hidden in FreeBSD, It’s unfortunate they don’t get more publicity.
