    Wireshark Project


    I would like to make a "prototype/basic" application like wireshark for my learning which will dissect a protocol (say TCP) initially and eventually I would like to add further protocols to it.

    Can someone guide as to what should be my approach :
    1. What stuff I should be reading and focusing on,
    2. RFCs that I should be reading
    3. Will Unix Networking programming help
    4. Any small porjects that I can execute at first

    I tried to read wireshark documentation...however, it has become a very complicated tool now and the documentation is enormous, confusing and intimidating

    Assuming you are already familiar with the network protocols in question, the pcap-api is a good way to start.
    Google it for more information and tutorials.
