The Korteweg-de Vries equation is considered in the semi-infinite real line with boundary condition at the origin. The numerical investigations of Chu et al. [2], are revisited and different new forms for the boundary forcing are assumed. In order to provide some qualitative description for the numerical simulations a simple model based on the IST formalism is developed. It is found that the model is also able to provide some quantitative predictions in agreement with the numerical results.
