Our first step will be to show you how to set up a simple bi-directional raw TCP test scenario.
CONFIGURING YOUR FIRST TEST PROJECT
A test project is a self-contained collection of ports, subnets, traffic profiles, etc. in a directory commonly found in C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Xena\VulcanManager.
1. Open VulcanManager and choose the Client <-> Server Topology template from Featured quick start templates. This template offers an end-to-end testing where the test platform acts as both client and server. Once opened, notice the three application tabs in the menu; Edit, Run Test and Reporting. These are the three contexts for setting up a test, executing it, observing real time statistics, at last, analyzing the collected statistics, and generating reports.
2. Press Add Chassis button located in the Edit tab. Enter the IP address of the chassis, use the default port number and password for the chassis. Upon arrival, the chassis will be preconfigured with: IP address 192.168.1.210, port 22606 and password “xena”. If you are using Xena’s Live Demo system, the IP address is 220.127.116.11 and the password is “xena”.
3. After the chassis is added, right click a port to quickly
reserve it. If your username appears next to the port, it
means the port is yours to use. Do it to another port
because you need at least two ports to create Notice
that, anywhere in the application, when you see the
port icon, you can right-click to get the context menu for port operations.
4. If you only want to see the ports that you use, you can check the checkboxes Used beside those ports and then click the Show Only Used Ports checkbox on top of the Chassis Explorer.
