SYNOPSIS

vde_over_ns [-D] [-c server_address] [-s vde_plug] [-i ip.to.bi.nd] domain.name

DESCRIPTION

A vde_over_ns allows to connect two remote vde_switches through steganographic NS query/response datagrams. e.g.:

dpipe vde_plug /tmp/s1 = vde_over_ns tun.mydomain.vde

binds to udp port 53 and listen for incoming steganographic NS queries (server mode). All the traffic to/from stdout/stdin is redirected to the client via ns responses.

creates a wire between two vde_switches (with sockets /tmp/s1 and /tmp/s2 respectively). This cable looses 10% of the packets in each direction.

The same vde_over_dns server can be created using:

vde_over_ns -s /tmp/s1 tun.mydomain.vde

The syntax is almost identical for the client mode, except that to have a vde_over_ns client connect to that server, the -c server option must be specified.

OPTIONS

-s vdeplug
  If specified, the vde_over_ns will connect to the local vde socket vdeplug instead pf stdin/stdout, using the libvdeplug library.
-D Detach console and send the process to background.
-b ip.to.bind
  The NS server will bind only to the specified ip, instead of any ip. Only valid in server mode (without -c)
-c server_addr
  If specified, client mode is enabled. Vde_over_ns will try to send NS requests to server_addr. If not specified, server mode is enabled by default.

NOTICE

Virtual Distributed Ethernet is not related in any way with www.vde.com ("Verband der Elektrotechnik, Elektronik und Informationstechnik" i.e. the German "Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies").
