A simple test program that I made for milstone 2 is available from the “milstone 2” link. It has a textbased interface that lets you test sending message between a NorgnaClient and a NorgnaServer. It has an option for simulating packet loss to help demonstrate the difference between sending reliable and unreliable messgages. The program starts both a server and client and they listen to different ports so it’s possible to test it locally. The input handling is very limited and the messages you type in can cannot contain any spaces and you have to type either true or false after the message to indicate if you want it to be sent reliably or unreliably.

Example of sending a reliable message: send hello true

Example of sending an unreliable message: send hello false
