Active networks are a possible Internet architecture for the future. They provide network users with more flexibility by allowing them to customise and control the behaviour of networks dynamically. Internet Friendly Active Network (IFAN) is an active network architecture based on the existing IP architecture. In this thesis a practical implementation of an active network node is presented, named IFAN Virtual Router (IFAN VR). IFAN VR is a software framework built on an IFAN node in IFAN networks, providing researchers, developers and users with an IFAN test-bed. The main modules of the IFAN VR and IFAN packet formats are described, and some IFAN protocols are proposed. Some IFAN applications have been implemented to demonstrate the concepts of the IFAN architecture and test the IFAN VR.
