Note 1: TCP test suites require a connection with the device under test (DUT) from both below and above the targeted TCP layer. Connection from below the TCP layer is achieved via a traditional physical layer interface. Connection from above the TCP layer can only be achieved with a unique application called "TCP Stub," developed by Ixia. The TCP Stub is controlled and managed remotely by Ixia TCP Test Suites. The purpose of the TCP Stub is to generate the necessary stimulus above the TCP layer required for testing. The TCP Stub is a portable C-code application bundled with TCP test suites. Customers are required to compile the TCP Stub onto their target systems.
