 +==== Bridge Setup ==== 
 + 
 +The lab pc will be used a network emulation device for the connection between the two laptops. Configure the lab pc with the two network cards as bridge. Connect the two laptops directly to the lab pc.

 +sudo brctl addbr mybridge 
 +sudo brctl addif mybridge eth1 
 +sudo brctl show 
 +sudo brctl addif mybridge eth2 
 +sudo ifconfig eth1 0.0.0.0 
 +sudo ifconfig eth2 0.0.0.0 
 +sudo ifconfig mybridge up 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +The bridge should now be up and running. Test the connection between the two laptops with ping and measure the RTT. Do the tftp transfer test again - now the software bridge between the two laptops. 
 + 
 +All further modifications regarding latency and packet loss should be done on the lab pc and not on the laptops. The reason is that wireshark will tap the traffic after the netem traffic control module.
