I am currently trying to develop a traceroute clone.Can you please tell me how to receive a UDP packet(i know to recieve and send using the default DatagramSocket and DatagramPacket Classes) but they dont allow me to edit the TTL fields.Whats the feasibility in doing this is in Java. I want to edit the TTL fields :send and receive the packets.
Traceroute doesn't use UDP; it uses a lower level IP protocol called ICMP. J2SE doesn't support ICMP, nor does it support much else in the way of low-level networking. A traceroute clone, while trivial in C, is going to be a difficult mess in Java.
As Ernest pointed out, Java doesn't have the functionality you require. Is there a reason you can't use 3rd party libraries or a more suitable language like C? [ March 19, 2008: Message edited by: Joe Ess ]
