Packet Sender is a good tool when debugging protocols: free utility to send & receive network packets. TCP, UDP, SSL

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/07

It was fitting to bump into [WayBack] Packet Sender is a good tool when debugging protocols…” Written by Dan Nagle… – Lars Fosdal – Google+ on the day presenting [WayBack] Conferences/Network-Protocol-Security.rst at master · jpluimers/Conferences · GitHub

It also means that libssh2-delphi is getting a bit more love soon and will move to github as well after a conversion from mercurial.

Some of the things I learned or got confirmed teaching the session (I love learning by teaching):

Here is some more info:

Open SourceTree tickets

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/07

Two reasons for this list:

  1. I messed up user accounts so the tickets are actually from two accounts (because I got confused between the bitbucket and atlassian domains).
  2. Jira searching is horrible, so hopefully Google does a better indexing of finding my own stuff back
  3. Around the 1.5/1.6 switch, 1.6 was so unstable and bugs were hardly acted upon that I didn’t keep track on progress
    • bugs are still hardly acted upon; it’s difficult getting them in another stage than the initial one
    • 1.6 is now more stable and faster, so it’s OK to upgrade

Atlassian account.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/07

In cast I ever want to do Android work again in Visual Studio [WayBackVisual studio (2015) emulator for android not working – XDE.exe – Exit Code 3 – Stack Overflow

Getting the Android Emulator to run is tough because Hyper-V and networking is awful and running this all in a Windows VM makes it even more complicated.
