Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free.

I am looking for suggestion for a project in computer networks using C# as the development tool, as part of a university course I am taking.

The project should last about a month, involving two people.

I'll be happy to hear any intresting ideas you might have.

What level? bits and bytes on the wire, or application level? –  user1249 Nov 14 '10 at 9:45

A fun one I did in University was implementing time synchronization between computers. It's simple in scope, challenging, has some scholarly work to pull from (which was a necessity for my course) and is used in lots of different applications.

That's sounds like a nice idea. can you elaborate on that? –  Doron Sinai Nov 15 '10 at 13:30

A few suggestions :

  • An FTP/HTTP Scheduler were you could schedule upload and download of files from servers to a local machine

  • A Twitter client

  • An IRC client

An app that keeps a local folder in sync with an online (ftp) folder in near-real-time. I've yet to find a good application for this. They all seem to simply want to copy the local folder to the remote folder on a schedule. Which is very bandwidth intensive. Or they don't handle deletes from the local folder well, because they don't delete the remote file. etc.
