packet traversal through network


hi,

im trying to find how actually the packet travel through the network that is im trying to find at which place TCP header,IP header,ETHERNET header........

i think ehternet header is added in a function called eth_header() at linux/net/ethernet/eth.c but im not sure of it i tried to print ethernet header in a function eth_header() but it was not successfull

can any one tell me wr actually headers are added....

I think this might help: www dot xml dot com/ldd/chapter/book/ch14.html#t5 - (the forum won't let me do URLS until I have a few more posts ) The ethernet headers are a bit app-specific, but you might want to look over the skbuff implementation. I think that's probably closer to what you're trying to find out.

What exactly did you mean you tried to "print" the header? I'm assuming you modified one of the enet functions a bit... do you have the code?
