Quick Examples

Note on Plaforms

All of the following examples will work on Linux systems running the LANforge software with the LANforge kernel and a sufficient license. If you are running another Linux kernel, you will not be able to exactly duplicate some of the examples, but there are usually work-arounds available to assist you. Please contact us at support@candelatech.com if you have any questions.

If you are using the Windows version of LANforge, you will have to modify ports using the Windows utilities.
