Description Janos Mohacsi 2004-10-25 10:50:30 UTC
Maintainer Update of net/beacon to 1.1
Unbreak fetchability with update.
    * Fix TCP connection overflow bug.
    * SysLog facility support.
    * Rework some of the HTML generation code to clean the display up a bit. 
    * Central Server changed from becaon.ncsa.uiuc.edu to beacon.dast.nlanr.net.
    * Blind Beacons now marked with white writing on blue background on 
	Beacon Info page. 
    * Added "Blind" Beacon filter for HTML output. 
		A "Blind" Beacon is one which is reporting normally to the 
		Central Beacon Server via TCP, but which only sees itself, 
		and is only seen *by* itself. These are filtered out of the 
		main HTML matrix and listed below the main table, under the 
		heading "Blind Beacons".
    * Added a hyperlink to the Beacon FAQ for IP addresses which resolve to 
    * Support for multiple NICs.
    * Automatic backgrounding of the Beacon process at startup possible
    * Specify CONTACTNAME/INFO/LOCATION on command line or in beacon.conf.
    * Fixed bug history file update.
    * Link on HTML output pages pointing Code Contributions and Patches. 
    * Getting hostname of local Beacon. Using both Sys::Hostname and 
	Net::Domain together now to make it more robust.
    * OUTPUTDIR spec for beacon.conf and command line interface
    * Various bug fixes 
    * Ability to change UID to non-privileged user
    * Link on Beacon Info page to FAQ for those running their Beacon as root
    * Burst testing -- 100 consecutive RTP packets out as fast as it can.
    * Silence testing -- During a Silence test, the Beacon stops sending 
	RTP/RTCP data to the group for three minutes, as a means of testing 
	the mutlicast leave/join mechanism as the connection is torn down 
	and then rebuilt after it times out. 

Port Changes:
    * IPv6 support honors WITH_IPv6 flags
    * IPv6 reverse lookup support
