Still a few more things needed before it can be activated, so I have not enabled it in any tests yet. One of those things is the server-side check for irtt, another is internal to Flent...

After my afternoon walk, I’m re-thinking how to handle the server check. What I propose instead of adding a separate command is:

* add a -n parameter to the client command, which will skip the running of the test. A single packet will be sent with both the open and close flags set, the server will evaluate the test parameters, as usual, and return a response with any parameter restrictions, as usual.

* add a -hwait parameter, or similar, which allows specifying the list of durations to wait for the handshake response, that can be specified with or without -n


* you can use -strictparams if you want, to make sure the parameters you use for the test won't be restricted by the server

* the specification of other parameters relevant to connecting (handshake wait times, hmac key, -4, -6, etc) is all done in an equivalent way

* when it comes to protecting the server (which still needs work), I don’t have to deal with a new type of packet to rate limit

Is this ok?
