You are asked to write programs for configurable routing simulation. This assignment weights 200 points.

The usual note:

Latest Hint:

Please see FAQ.


You will write three C/C++ programs using BSD sockets (using UDP) to implement a client (sender), a server (receiver), and routers. There will be only one client, one server, and multiple routers. The setup looks like this.

The client (CL) sends out messages. Routers (R1 and R2) forward the messages received to next routers or to server (SR). Server receives messages from client or routers.
