Multipath TCP on Gentoo

I have used Gentoo for about 3 years now. I'm enthusiast of this distribution because it gives me big choice of options. For a few months I am working on some Multipath TCP features. I have created an overlay with newest MPTCP kernel and net-tools supporting this protocol.

You can add it using layman:

sudo layman -o -f -a mptcp

You can read more about layman on Gentoo Wiki.

This overlay is in development. I have to add previous kernels and newest one. v4.15.2 is tested and working one.


sys-kernel/mptcp-sources is a mainline kernel including Multipath TCP patches.


net-tools package containing extensions for Multipath TCP connections.
