and Daytime client. They are provided for historical
completeness - the Simple Services can be installed on
Character Generator mode (CHARGEN client)
- Shows the first 1024 characters received from a
- Shows the current approximate bytes/second received
from the Chargen server.
- Supports TCP and UDP.
Chargen is a service which can be used to determine
network speed in characters per second between two points.
It is defined in RFC 864.
The Daytime Client allows you to communicate and request the ASCII representation of
the local time from a server. It is displayed exactly as generated by the server.
The Echo client allows you to connect to the echo service on another computer and
type characters. You can observe the responsiveness of the other
computer over a network. If UDP mode is used, characters may be
dropped or transposed. There is also a speed test using the TCP echo port.
The Quote of the Day Client Tool allows you to query a target host for the quote of the day protocol response.
