    6 This Project leverages resources on the ProtoGENI aggregate, using the Omni GENI client. [[BR]]
     6This Project leverages resources on the GENI aggregate in order to experiment with TCP. [[BR]]
    77The objective of this project is to familiarize you with the details of TCP congestion control, and the impact of network conditions on the TCP congestion control algorithms. [[BR]]
    88You will specifically learn about: [[BR]]
     
    2323The two primary tools used in this assignment are: [[BR]]
    2424'''1. Traffic Control (tc)'''[[BR]]
    25 The tc command is available in the GNU Linux distributions on ProtoGENI nodes, found in the ''/sbin'' directory.
     25The tc command is available in the GNU Linux distributions on GENI nodes, found in the ''/sbin'' directory.
    2626This command manipulates the Linux network forwarding tables, allowing for configuration of queuing disciplines,
    2727which change the policies controlling which packets are forwarded in what order and which are dropped; and network

    3333'''2. [http://iperf.sourceforge.net/ Iperf]'''[[BR]]
    34 Iperf is available on the ProtoGENI nodes, located at ''/usr/local/etc/emulab/emulab-iperf''.
     34Iperf is available on the GENI nodes, located at ''/usr/local/etc/emulab/emulab-iperf''.
    3535Iperf is used to measure the bandwidth performance of Internet links. In these exercises,
    3636it is used to study the behavior of TCP in the face of changing link characteristics.
