Short description of project
XORP is the eXtensible Open Router Platform. XORP is the industry's only extensible open source routing platform. It is in broad use worldwide, with thousands of downloads by companies and educational institutions and an active international developer community. Designed for extensibility from the start, XORP provides a fully featured platform that implements IPv4 and IPv6 routing protocols and a unified platform to configure them. It is the only open source platform to offer integrated multicast capability. XORP's modular architecture allows rapid introduction of new protocols, features and functionality, including support for custom hardware and software forwarding. 
Short description of the task performed by Croatian partner
Port of the Click Modular Router to the FreeBSD operating system. Areas of particular interest in completing the port: (1) File system handlers that allow external interaction with Click (getting and setting of state)., (2) Verify that Click and FreeBSD forwarding mechanisms interact efficiently, and (3) Examine the way that Click is currently scheduled and cosider implementing Click as a kernel process if appropriate.
