Utilizing IXP1200 hardware and software for packet filtering

As network processors have advanced in speed and efficiency they have become more and more complex in both hardware and software configurations. Intel's IXP1200 is one of these new network processors that has been given to different universities worldwide to conduct research on. The goal of this thesis is to take the first step in starting that research by providing a stable system that can provide a reliable platform for further research. This thesis introduces the fundamental hardware of Intel's IXP1200 and what it takes to install both hardware and software using both Windows 2000 and Linux 7.2 as the operating system in support for the IXP1200. This thesis will provide information on the installation of hardware and software configuration for the IXP1200 including Intel's Software Development Kit (SDK). Upon completion this platform can then be used to conduct further research in the development of the IXP1200 network processor. It provides a hardware and software installation checklist and documentations of problems encountered and recommendations for their resolution. Along with providing an example of using preexisting code that has been modified to filter packets of TCP or UDP to different ports.
