LIBVDEPLUG_UDP(1) General Commands Manual LIBVDEPLUG_UDP(1)

NAME

libvdeplug_udp - vdeplug module for point to point connections using UDP

SYNOPSIS

libvdeplug_udp.so

DESCRIPTION

libvdeplug_udp creates a point to point connection between two vde supporting tools using UDP. This module of libvdeplug4 can be used in any program supporting vde like vde_plug, kvm, qemu, user-mode-linux and virtualbox.

The network connection created by this module is not encrypted so the data transferred can be intercepted by network analyzer programs.

The vde_plug_url syntax of this module is the following:


udp://"[src_address:]src_port->dest_address:dest_port"

EXAMPLES

udp://"2000->host_b.domain_b.org:3000"
udp://"3000->host_a.domain_a.org:2000"
These are the vde_plug_urls to use at host_a.domain_a.org and host_b.domain_b.org respectively to create a connection between port 2000 at host_a and port 3000 at port_b.
