I am an experienced C++ programmer, I have decided that I am going to write a win32 firewall as my next hobby project. I know, this will require a lot of reading...but thats fine. Its a learning project.
Anyways, I was wondering - how would you recommend that I block specific trafic? How would I view individual packets and their information? Should I use winpcap or some other third party software? Could anyone recommend any resources or other help?
All help is apreciated,
