About testing, is there any tool which can simulate a large amount of
clients on a server (for example, 600 clients, using 128Kbits/s each) on
a local area network ? A sort of stress-test, which would make the
server act exactly the same as if it was in real conditions...

I tried running many ogg123 / mpg123 in null output, but it overloads
the client machine too fastly...
