Never heard of that either but sounds like another name for a repeater. Could be it only does TCP/UDP packets. Not really sure.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

The term is also used for a "through firewall" software for linux:

I built a packet receiver/transmitter adapter for my Commodore 64 to print out coast guard weather reports in the 1980's
