Ethernet Frame Diverter is mainly used for setting up a bridge with Squid running on it and transparently caching the Web traffic between the LAN and the router. "Transparent" means that no reconfiguration of the router or the clients is required. It also means that, in case of trouble, the machine can be replaced by a simple crossover RJ45 patch cord.

Release Notes: Updates for Linux 2.4.10.
Release Notes: The source code is now common for both kernels 2.4.x and 2.2.x. Divert-utils 0.32 corrects a wrong UDP/TCP port filtering bug. A manpage is available for the userspace command divert.
Release Notes: This release can be compiled as a module for kernel 2.2.18.
Release Notes: Frame Diverter 0.5pre is out for testing with kernel 2.2.17. It introduces rule-based packet selection, with the possibility to divert towards a given mac address on the LAN. (Frame Diverter goes with divert-utils 0.30.) Divert-utils 0.221 corrects a compilation problem on kernel 2.2.18 for Frame Diverter 0.46x.
Release Notes: A fix for kernel 2.2.17 was made which removes debugging printk's that were hogging the CPU to log mac addresses for each frame being processed. Patch 0.46 for kernel 2.4.0-test8 is not affected.
