This sana-2 device allows you to configure amitcp to use an unlimited number of
ip addresses on your local machine. This is great for testing without connecting
to any actual network.

The local.device prefs file (ENV:Sana2/local?.prefs) contains one config line
(aside from the comments). The format of the line (in ReadArgs() style) is:

 C=CurrentAddress/A,D=DefaultAddress/A,MTU/N/A,BPS/N/A,HWType/N/A

 where:
	CurrentAddress		Our current "hardware" address 128 bits long.
	DefaultAddress		Our default "hardware" address 128 bits long.
	MTU 			Maximum Transmission Unit.
	BPS			Bits Per Second.
	HWType			Hardware type number (see include:devices/sana2.h).
				eg S2WireType_Ethernet = 1 and S2WireType_PPP = 254

a line starting with # is ignored.

eg IP=10.0.0.2 MTU=4096 BPS=512k/s HWType=Ethernet (1)
becomes C="10.0.0.2" D="10.0.0.2" MTU=1500 BPS=524288 HWType=1

put the following line in amitcp:db/interfaces
local0 DEV=DEVS:Networks/local.device UNIT=0

use the following line to config the thing into amitcp:
ifconfig local0 10.0.0.2 netmask 255.0.0.0

Now startup amitcp and yeah you've got a local ip address!
Which can be monitored with Sniffer and other programs.

Things on the `ToDo list' : - Packet tracking.
                            - other requests.

Have fun with your local network!
