Hi. I've had a break from Java for a couple of years but I have a new project (which is probably way over my head).

As part of my intro to Java, one exercise was a simple client/server sending strings back and forward etc.

What if you wanted to write packets to the outbound stream of a network interface?

Is there a framework that allows one to write headers?

What if it was layer 2 packets like STP, VTP, DTP ?

Could someone point me in the right direction?

T.I.A.
