NAME

     ng_ether_echo - netgraph ether_echo node type

SYNOPSIS

     #include <netgraph/ng_ether_echo.h>

DESCRIPTION

     The ether_echo node type reflects all data and control messages back to
     the sender.  It assumes (and does not check) that the packet is an
     ethernet frame, and swaps the source and destination addresses before
     echoing it.  This node type is used for testing and debugging.

HOOKS

     A ether_echo node accepts any request to connect, regardless of the hook
     name, as long as the name is unique.

CONTROL MESSAGES

     This node type supports only the generic control messages.  Any other
     control messages are reflected back to the sender.

SHUTDOWN

     This node shuts down upon receipt of a NGM_SHUTDOWN control message, or
     when all hooks have been disconnected.

HISTORY

     The ng_ether_echo node type was implemented in FreeBSD 8.0.
