Can this tool do what you want: TCP Connection Passing ?

  Subject: [e2e] A Question on the TCP handoff

  I have a question on the TCP handoff. Let's assume that there is an actual TCP connection between host-1 (H1) and Host-A (HA). Meantime, host-2 and Host-A (HA) establishes a warm-up connection to be handovered. Is it ever possible to replace the actual connection with the warm-up connection let's say that because H1 moves? (is this against to the end-to-end semantics of TCP?) If so, what mechanisms could be used to achieve the handoff? (i.e. TCP stack modifications, socket layer modifications, middleware on top of TCP, etc...)
  I appreciate your answers.
