Hi,

I am tying to implement the TCP/IP protocol suite using java. Is there any API available to implement the network layer. For example, I want to write the code for RIP or OSPF and test the same using three computers, of which one is converted to router, how i can start with using java?

thanks in advance

Hi,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Without some native code, you won't be able to do this. Java itself doesn't offer the low-level access you need to implement a network protocol.
