University of Pittsburgh School of Information Sciences TELCOM 2310: Computer Networks ± Fall 2009 Project 4: Implementation of RIP Due: November 22 (11:59pm) You may work on this project individually or in groups of no more than two students 1. Introduction The educational objective of this project is to reinforce the understanding of the DV algorithm and RIP (Routing Information Protocol). You will design and implement (in Java) a server that implements basic RIP commands. I will call your code a “RIP server” or “RIP router” throughout this document. Several instances of your RIP server will be running on several machines and should be able to exchange requests and responses properly as specified by the RIP standard specification (see link below). In this (simplified) project, your RIP server will only read a file (called connection_file ) describing the network configuration and report this information back to another instance of the server when requested. The format of the messages exchanged between servers must be as described in the RIP specification: +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ | command (1) | version (1) | must be zero (2) | +---------------+---------------+-------------------------------+ | address family identifier (2) | must be zero (2) | +-------------------------------+-------------------------------+
