Overview BitTorrent-like file transfer application Reliability and congestion control protocol similar to TCP UDP based and C programming Allow regroup up to 3 members
Project Specification Intro to BitTorrent file transfer protocol Congestion control mechanism to ensure fair and efficient network utilization. Smart optimizations to get the best possible transfer time (extra credit).
Intro to BitTorrent A fixed-size chunk of 512Kbytes in pro3 Verification by rehashing Flooding, no tracker server Single master-file, different ownership BT = TCP, Project3 = UDP Hash( ) = =.torrent

Project Tasks 100% Reliability & Sliding Window Congestion control *Intelligent Peer Selection and Caching
100% Reliability & Sliding window Cumulative ACK Duplicate ACK SENDERRECEIVER Last ACKedLast Sent Last Available Next Expected Last Received
Congestion control Slow start : ACK received => window++ Congestion Avoidance : Window size = 1 after a loss (Simple Version) Fast Retransmit : Retransmit after 3 duplicate ACK Fast Recovery : No need to implement (But you may need it in Task3)
Tools Spiffy: Simulating Networks with Loss & Congestion sendto() => spiffy_sendto() Gnuplot and etc
