I have found this project online which I would like to do. The link for the project is http://1000projects.org/network-intrusion-detection-system.html#comment-249119. If I am correct, this application if built properly is meant to look at all the packets and store them into SQL server?. I have got many problems before I have even started. I am not sure, how to capture the network packets.
The other thing is, I have got visual studio express 2013 and I have got .NET framwork 4.0 installed but I am not sure why I cannot open a .NET framework project. I have to be able to use windows form and .NET. I am not sure of this setup.
Can you please help with my problems?
