Hi everyone. I am making code for a router and web and game servers using the MenuetOS. Initialy I start it with a piece of the Kernel and the Stack code. But I need some help to do this, mainly with the code for the hardware of a ethernet board and de TCP/IP protocol.

Does someone knows that? Can someone help me?! Smile

Thanks.

I don't know really much ASM at all, but I'll be willing to help...
I like the idea of designing a server, lol

As far as I know, Mike Hibbett already coded ethernet and TCP/IP protocols for MenuetOS.

I wrote two ethernet drivers for menuetOS, so I may help you in this theme. On the other hand a full redesign of networking would soon be necessary. It's because MenuetOS will slowly have a complete memory management and hopefully we can sometime change to interrupt driven package transfer as well (currently we poll the NIC). For this a better interrupt management is also necessary. Now we aren't able to use two NICs concurrently. And there are some points we could still easily make optimizations at (I mean here for instance that we copy too many bytes too often - might be we could reduce this overhead a bit). My own imagination is that the TCP/IP layer has nothing to do with the kernel it should be a user-space application. Putting it all together we should make a good networking design without seeing the current ability of the kernel. We will just pull it after our needs.
