Where can I find source code for TCP/IP protocols open source?
Hi all,

does anyone know in which languages TCP/IP protocols stack were written and where to find their source code (open source)?

Please let me know if you know.
Regards with thanks. Jean

Since Asembler language is machine architecture dependent how does TCP/IP work on all architectures?

I'm not seeing the connection to a topic of general PM interest, but it is usually implemented in a 3GL language of some kind such as C. Here is one example for Linux: http://lxr.linux.no/linux+v2.6.37/net/ipv4/tcp_ipv4.c

Thanks, Kiron. No, it is not a general PM question, but a specific project on tcp/ip protocols implementation that I am working on. I thought maybe there is someone on projectmanagement.com who has expertise in PM and tcp/ip protocols. This a complex project. Regards. Jean
The implementation of the TCP/IP protocol is the responsability of each operating system. For example there's a Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows. Given Linux is open source, it may be your best bet for an open source TCP/IP stack.

Just as a clarification, assembly language is CPU dependent. It is likely that protocols, like TCP/IP, are implemented with a 3GL such as C.

Thanks Stephane. Appreciate your help.

Thanks. Jean
Is this a PM-related question?
I agree with Kiron.
