v got a final year proj. which reqs us to build a network monitoring kinda tool
initially we are just planning to do a basic boot failure detection of the client m/cs....atleast for this semester....then add better functionalities to it.
1) can anyone suggest how do v go about doin it... like what knowledge do v need to have to sstart the proj...........we've decided to use JAVA. the server is a WinNT,clients run WinXP.
2) any good book that u could suggest???
3) also do v need to use socket programming??
