• Are TCP FINS a concern?

    i have seen a lot of tcpfins on my sonic wall firewall. When I look up the IP address the sites are not sites we are accessing. Is this something I can report as a crime or how do I address.

  • Maximum number of TCP connections on Windows Server 2008

    We're trying to run as many connections as possible in our server that's running on Windows Server 2008. To support our Comet-style application, it's written in C#. All the connections just need to be open (and stay open). From what we're looking at, we're limited to 65K of simultaneous open...

  • How and where does fragmentation happen?

    Say I have a data of 5000 bytes. Once it reaches layer 4 the TCP header will be added. as the data is large there will be 4 pieces of the data; so there will be 4 TCP headers one for each piece. Now the 4 pieces go to the layer 3 one by one. Will there be any function of Fragment Offset and...

  • How can I determine the size of a packet?

    I have initiated a TCP connection for a HTTP request and response. Now after it was completed, I sent a request to the server for the HTTP packet (with a SYN flag set). The server responded with a ACK flag but when that finished, it sent a FIN flag. So my question is: How can I figure out the size...

  • What’s the better option for my TCP server: Netty or Apache MINA?

    I currently have a high performance TCP server and I've come down to two options: Netty or Apache MINA. If your honest opinion, which way should I lean towards? Has anyone used either? If/so, what are the advantages and disadvantages to each. Thanks!

  • Closing TCP and UDP ports using Windows command line

    Would anyone know of a way of closing a TCP or UDP socket for a single connection via the Windows command line?

    I'm sending files from our client to the server using TCP. To end the mark of the file, I would like to send the file size before the actual data so I've been using the stat system call. Now I need to know how many actual bytes it occupies so I can read it correctly on the server. It's defined...

    I currently have a TCP server that always listens for an incoming client, then it sends one packet of data every single second.

  • How to redirect TCP-traffic to Unix domain socket

    I have a legacy Linux application that's listening on a UNIX domain socket. Now, I'm trying to connect to it through a TCP-connection on a port (Port 1234). What would be the easiest way to bind the port and then redirect all incoming connections to the domain socket?

    I don't have a strong networking background but I've been doing some research on Infiniband. And I'm not quite sure how the concepts of IPoIB and TCP fit into it. Can someone explain to me how they work / what they do with Infiniband? Which way is better to go?

    I'm currently working on a .NET solution that runs completely inside a single network. So when a user makes a change to the system, I need to launch an announcement / have everyone hear it.

    I’ve read that IP packets can sometimes get lost in transmission and that TCP often requests retransmission of lost data.  How often are packets lost permanently?  What are the requirements for retransmission?  Are lost packets a security risk?
