Hi everybody,

      The first beta release of NetKitServer is up and running.
NetKitServer is a tcp server for creating and managing a virtual net, 
based on uml hosts, running on our remote box.
   You can reach the server with a telnet to port 1975 of 
   With the "help" command you will get a list of all the supported 
   Basically, you can create virtual hosts, collision domains, attach
interfaces to the hosts, start virtual hosts and execute commands on
   Your telnet program has to send commands line-by-line, otherwise
you will have an error for each char you type.
Here is a list of commands that you can send to the server

-newvh "hostname" ["mem"]       insert a new vhost on the db with mem
                                 memory (mem can be one of 8,16,32,64)
-delvh "hostname"               delete a not running vhost
-startvh "hostname"             start a not running vhost
-stopvh "hostname"              stop a running vhost
-newcd	"colldom"               insert and create a new collision domain
-delcd "colldom"                delete a collision domain only if it

-newif "hostname" "colldom"     insert a new interface on the hostname

-exec "hostname" "cmd"          exec the command cmd on hostname
-sendchars "hostname" "chars"   send chars on hostname shells (you can
