DESCRIPTION

The Packet Repeater is a UDP packet duplicator that replicates UDP packets through any IP network. The Packet Repeater has three Ethernet LAN ports and a serial port. The Ethernet ports are copper, MDI/MDIX auto-sensing. The serial port may be used for initial setup to configure an initial IP address if required.

The Packet Repeater duplicates some or all of the UDP packets passing through it. The original packet is passed unchanged; if selected for packet duplication, it is duplicated and the duplicates sent to configured addresses.

All UDP packets are candidates for duplication, selected is based upon configured criteria. The selection of a packet to be duplicated may be based upon any combination of the source IP address, the destination address, and UDP port number. Additional flexibility is provided with the selection criteria which may include multiple address ranges for the source, destination as well as UDP port selected.

Each packet selected by one of the five selection rules may be duplicated to as many as ten recipient IP addresses configured for the rule for a total of 50 destinations. UDP port numbers may be passed intact with no change to the destination port number, or to a different UDP port number substituted for the original one.

The Packet Repeater is bidirectional. Packets being returned through the Packet Repeater may be passed unchanged, or duplicated.

As all UDP packets are candidates for selection, the Packet Repeater may be used to duplicate SNMP, NTP, Sflow, Nflow, Rsyslog, SCADA protocols including DNP/UDP, and MODBUS/UDP, as well as all other UDP packets.

The Packet Repeater is managed via web browser.



How it works:

The Packet Repeater is used to duplicate some or all of the UDP packets passing through it. The original packet is passed unchanged; and if selected for duplication, it is duplicated and the duplicates sent to configured addresses. All UDP packets are candidates for duplication, which is selected based upon configured criteria. The selection of a packet to be duplicated may be based upon the any combination of the source IP address, the destination address, and the UDP port number. Additional flexibility is provided with the selection criteria which may include multiple address ranges for the source and destination as well as UDP port being selected.

Each packet selected by one of the five selection rules may be duplicated to as many as ten recipient IP addresses for each rule. A packet may be selected by more than one rule. UDP port numbers may be passed intact with no change to the destination port number, or a different UDP port number substituted for the original one.

Since the Packet Repeater is bidirectional, packets being returned through the Packet Repeater may be passed unchanged, or duplicated as well.

An alternative to the Netsieben netflow replicator. Also works great with Solarwinds network monitor systems.

All UDP packets are candidates for selection, so the Packet Repeater may be used to duplicate SNMP, NTP, SCADA protocols including DNP/UDP, and MODBUS/UDP, as well as all other UDP packets.

Redundant SCADA polling hosts

When using SCADA protocols such as DNP or MODBUS over UDP/IP, it is sometimes advantageous to have the remote RTUs respond to multiple polling hosts. This provides a redundant host, possible off-site. Some RTUs only respond to a single polling host, as configured in the RTU. The Packet Repeater will allow multiple RTUs to interact with multiple polling host computers.

Redundant rsyslog logging to multiple rsyslog computers

It is sometimes needed to duplicate system logging entries on multiple systems, such as server rsyslog entries, firewall syslog entries, etc. This device allows a single rsyslog entry to be duplicated to multiple remote logging computers

Netflow or Sflow datagrams

The Packet Repeater allows sflow and netflow datagrams to be duplicated to multiple management workstations.


SNMP

The Packet Repeater allows SNMP packets to be duplicated to multiple SNMP workstations, RMONs, and allows a single SNMP client to be controlled from multiple workstations.

NTP

The Packet Repeater allows a single NTP protocol server to supply NTP packets to multiple receipients.

Streaming Audio and Streaming Video

The Packet Repeater allows a single streaming server to supply UDP streaming data flows to multiple receipients.

Multicast Unicast translation

The Packet Repeater allows a IP address "fan-out" from a single unicast IP address range to multiple addresses. The addresses on either the incoming or exiting port may be unicast or multicast IP address ranges.
