nuttcp is based on nttcp, which in turn was an enhancement by someone
at Silicon Graphics (SGI) on the original ttcp, which was written by
Mike Muuss at BRL sometime before December 1984, to compare the perfor-
mance of TCP stacks by U.C. Berkeley and BBN to help DARPA decide which
version to place in the first BSD Unix release. nuttcp has several
useful features beyond those of the basic ttcp/nttcp, such as a server
mode, rate limiting, multiple parallel streams, and timer based usage.
More recent changes include IPv6 support, IPv4 multicast, and the abil-
ity to set the maximum segment size or TOS/DSCP bits.

I'll be maintain that port, if you don't mind.
Patch attached with submission follows:
Fix category (new ports should be change-requests) (via the GNATS Auto
I'll take it.
please rework this port and use only one version, you can create a
-devel port for the beta version.

nuttcp is a network performance measurement tool intended for use
by network and system managers. Its most basic usage is to determine
the raw TCP (or UDP) network layer throughput by transferring memory
buffers from a source system across an interconnecting network to
a destination system, either transferring data for a specified time
interval, or alternatively transferring a specified number of bytes.
nuttcp is based on nttcp, but have several useful features such
as a server mode, rate limiting, multiple parallel streams, and
timer based usage.
