Hi Prasad,

I am delighted to see that you have started working on GINI.
I can definitely help you. We are working on the GINI interface and a new
version will be out end of this summer.

I assume your topology has two machines and a router?
Where are starting the pings from? One machine to another machine?

Does the pings work? I mean do you get the reply packets for the ping?
In GINI, you have two places where you can add your protocols: machines
and routers. The machines are user-mode Linuxes. Therefore, adding protocols
to the machines are complicated. The routers are simple devices with about 
6000 lines
of C code. What kind of protocols do you have in mind?

Could you let me know the protocol development plan you have. Then I can
provide you with better advise.

In the mean time, I will send you some documentation in a follow up email.
