Project: Overview

The goal of the project is to give students a feel for hands-on network programming. Over the course of the quarter, students will develop a peer-to-peer file sharing system that will be deployed on mobile devices. In this class, we will be using the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet for developing the file sharing application. The N800 uses Maemo Linux as its Operating System. The project is divided into 3 phases:

  1. Phase 1: Understanding sockets
  2. Phase 2: Routing
  3. Phase 3: Epidemic routing

Interoperability: The final projects of all groups will be expected to interoperate with each other. In order to ensure this, all groups have to adhere to the specified packet formats and protocol specifications.

Setting up your N800: Some quick guides for setting up and configuring the N800s, sort of like a FAQ.
