Hi all,

I am a student. Who is doing project under a professor. In our
university from next year a new course on NETWORKING is going to be
started. My task is to design "lab experiments" for that course.

Can you please suggest few experimental ideas, that will help a newbie
in Networking field.

Note: "Network Security" is also included.

Three things that students are not getting in network courses that are CRITICAL to the real world:
   1) Low level understanding of protocols
   2) Routing
   3) Packet filtering

Some tools I would recommend as absolute requirements for the course:
   wireshark
   nmap
   traceroute
   ping
   arping
   hping
   dsniff
   gobbler
   ettercap
   hunt
   yersina
   firewalk
   iptables
   snort (if you get into IDS)
   quagga (for routing)


If you get into protocol errors / DOS:
   jolt
   land
   nestea
   smurf
   fraggle

Hope this helps!
