isn't the nature of an assignment to do it yourself. Just a crazy idea, but maybe you learn something if you try ;-)

the purpose of an assignment is not to have fun, but to learn something, right? In an ideal situation, you'll learn something and have some fun. ;-)

Hint: Search the site and you will find similar questions. They will help you to understand how it works. Look for something that is called 'following a tcp stream' (or so).
