Networking project help
I was short of ideas to try for implementation for my networking project, I want to try a project something based on logins,ftps etc and one that will teach me most of networking stuff. I dont want to do mesengers the most common of them. Please suggest som ideas such as monitoring , P2P , analyzers etc that can be coded easily in C . I intend to use Linux for my project. Any insights will be truly appreciated .
Why not just write an ftp daemon? That'll teach you most of the things that you'll need to know about networking.
You could write a SMTP mail client. This could be done in a few days of coding, and can teach you quite a bit.
An ftp daemon might be a little much unless you are willing to spend a lot of time on this project.
Write a routing algorithm, that will teach you a lot about networking.
You can use c-net network simulator, write your algorithm in C.
