NIST Net was exactly what I was after. Pros: Simple to configure and
use. Cons: Far too little doc and only runs on linux (also running on
solaris would have been nice).
Network Simulator 2 can simulate almost any network, and could have done
the job, but is complex and interacting to the real world (network
interfaces) seems to be an experimental "extra feature".
