Explain to him that he's picked the absolute hardest way possible to teach you how to learn C. Explain to him that even administrators who've been using linux for years would find this a daunting task.

Yes. Get an old Pentium III computer, install linux on it. No cygwin nonsense, no router nonsense, and you end up with a system that people here know enough about to actually help you with.

Absolutely. I have done some rewriting of the os on one of these, and it is:
1. Not for the inexperienced C programmer or sysadmin
2. Not for the faint hearted
3. Not a good platform to work with
4. Not easy to recover if you break it

If you really have to work with one of them, do ALL your development on a the platform Corona suggested, then migrate, do not try to work directly on the router, all you'll get from that is a broken router. By the time you get your code working you'll at least have a bit more experience and be more likely to get things working.

This seems a strange thing to install on a router. How did you get tasked with this?

random I guess.

Just my luck.

ok, now the most important thing is to get the OS, so that I can download and install into the router platform, using cygwin, i can write a program for the server and client side, so that they can both firstly, define the socket, second, bind.

And thirdly, the server can set to listen state, while the client set to connect state.

My supervisor asked me to get the arguments of sockets for cygwin, anyone know where I can get that?

my supervisor suggest the cygwin documentation?

anyone please give me the link of OS, just a single file will do, not the one with many download options...

from what i kno, my task is to modify a firmware so that the router can extend its functionality in various ways.

to do this, i first need an OS, or firmware, or anything that I can code, and use it as the router's firmware.

that is what I meant.

sorry about the unclarity for my prev posts, as those were what my supervisor told me, and now that i have a clearer picture i can explain what is it....

can anyone help?
