Application

Included with the Rely library is a test application. This application can be used for investigating whether or not a given environment is a good fit for Rely.

Start by building and installing the library as specified in Quick Start. The Rely test binary will then be located at [install_location]/bin/rely.

The basic use-case for the Rely application is to create a reliable tunnel between hosts on a network. The following diagram shows the basic setup.
