There are going to be three implementation projects in this
class. The projects are going to teach you how to do UNIX Network
Programming. No previous knowledge of TCP/IP Programming is required,
but you do need to know C/C++ and UNIX application developement
(e.g. gcc, makefiles, manpages etc). You should be able to use your
department UNIX account for developement but you are also free to use
your home machine. The only requirement is that the code will compile
on Linux. Non-CS students that do not have a UNIX account
and would like to get one, should contact me. These are group
projects, so you should team up to groups of 3 people. Mixed teams of
CS349 and CS449 students are not allowed.
There are going to be three projects:
- The first project is going to introduce you to the concept of
client/server programming and how to implement a simple networking
- For the last two projects you will actually build a simple
software-based router. This router will implement the protocols that we
learned in class and you will be able to test it using live traffic.
For more information about this project you can look at the Stanford VNS page
||HiRC: a simple instant messaging service. You will implement the
client and the server that follow a simplified instant messaging protocol. There is a sample server available
to you that you can test your client with. This server along with
other useful information is available from the Project1 page
