WAN with a latency?

 

There is a simple and free WAN simulator that Tara consulting have open sourced. This is how to use it for a quick and dirty 300ms delay simulation (in my case simulating India to the UK).

Software home page: http://wanem.sourceforge.net/

Link to download the virtual appliance: http://wanem.sourceforge.net/vma-server.html (or look for the v2.3 ISO)

The setup guide: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/wanem/Documents/WANemv11-Setup-Guide.pdf

Windows route change:
route add DestinationIPaddress mask 255.255.255.255 WanEmIPAddress

Linux route change:
route add –host DestinationIPaddress netmask 0.0.0.0 gw WanEmIPAddress

Ping the DestinationIPaddress and the response should be higher then the latency that you have configured.
