Want a Network Project!!
Although i am a regular C++ programmer, but have recently studied JAVA and made a Messenger service n JAVA that works in a LAN.
Now I need some other challenge to work on. So can you please provide with some vision on where other areas of network programming that i can work on and develop something innovative.
Programming Langs Known: C,C++, JAVA, VB.
Multiplayer game, complete with in game chat, lobby, etc..
writing a portscanner is fun. you decide, how complex it will be. i liked to optimize it over 3 nights, still it uses only tcp-full connect. fun anyway!
You could write a program that allows you to send completely customizable ethernet packets, ie, you construct a TCP packet and play around with the fields, to see how other hosts respond to different packets. This would consolidate your knowledge of TCP/IP and also your network programming skills.
