TCP Data Source

The TCP agent does not generate any application data on its own; instead, the simulation user can connect any traffic generation module to the TCP agent to generate data. Two applications are commonly used for TCP: FTP and Telnet. FTP represents a bulk data transfer of large size, and telnet chooses its transfer sizes randomly from tcplib (see the file tcplib-telnet.cc. Details on configuring these application source objects are in Section 40.4.
