Network Emulator Toolkit

Searching for a tool to simulate a poor network connection? Here is the solution. It’s called Network Emulator Toolkit (NEWT) and is available in a 32 Bits version and a 64 Bits version.

Download.
Network Emulator Toolkit 32-Bits.
Network Emulator Toolkit 64-Bits.

There is a new version of this tool, see the comment from Lonny Kruger. He wrote a blog about it. http://blogs.msdn.com/lkruger/archive/2009/06/08/introducing-true-network-emulation-in-visual-studio-2010.aspx

    OMG I was looking for this everywhere, thank you very much! :D

    Is it possible for you to upload the latest version though? The one I use at work is from the latest Games for Windows – LIVE SDK. It has a newer installer (digital signature from March 2008 instead of January 2008) and a file version (in Explorer) of 2.1.3.1 instead of 2.1.3.0.

    the links above dont seem to be working , can this be fixed?

  3. Hello Marc,

    thanks for the post, but the dld-links don´t function. Can you reenable these?
    Thx

  4. The links are for the NEW toolkit which has been gone for over a year. The latest version is delivered and integrated with Visual Studio.Net 2010. see my blog for more information http://blogs.msdn.com/lkruger/archive/2009/06/08/introducing-true-network-emulation-in-visual-studio-2010.aspx

  5. The official release of NEWT is released in VS2010 as Network Emulation. Currently, VS2010 only supports using Network Emulation while performing a Load Test or some other type of automated test. However, I have created a simple UI that allows you to select a Network Profile and emulate that profile without having to fire up VS2010 and starting a test. Please see my blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/lkruger for more details.

    Does anyone have any documentation for NEWT?

    The link no longer seems to work above – says I don’t have permission to download it from your account.

  8. I’ve change the download links, Microsoft changed my skydrive files. Al the Network Emulator files are gone. Now it should work again.

    Hi,
    I am trying to configure windows network emulator toolkit but there is nothing seen in RT traffic monitor and packet monitor.
    Steps I followed were
    - Click New Channel, select DialUp56K
    - Click New link, configure the latency- upstream, downstream
    - Click new filter, add new filter for all and click close
    - Select toggle tracing
    - Start the emulation.
    What am I missing here?
    Please guide

    hi Marco,

    Thanks for sharing this standalone tool. I want to know about this tool’s “license”, is it a free software? I check the “about” it only says that it was made by Microsoft research Asia.

    Do you have any clue? thanks!

    step 4, you must make sure that the toggle tracing is ON before step 5,not OFF. At the first,I am also be troubled in it,I found that “there is nothing seen in RT traffic monitor and packet monitor” is because the toggle’s OFF.

    Hello,

    Can this tool be used to create an an Ethernet bridge? Basically I want to use two NICs and hook a WiFi access point up to one of the NICs so I can use NEWT to modify the connection to an iPad.

    Is this something that can be done? How would I accomplish this if it can be done? There isn’t much info on NEWT that I can find.

    Thank you
