This simple project requires the creation of two components:
1. A daemon process that listens for TCP connections and responds to any connection with the output of the hostname, ifconfig, and uptime commands. The daemon is to be written in C and cross-compiled on Linux for the embedded WRT54g platform, using the freely-available DD-WRT tools.
2. A Perl client script that will run on another (Linux) machine that opens a connection to the daemon, reads all data from the socket, parses the input, and outputs the incoming byte count, outgoing byte count, uptime, and hostname to standard output, for a specific interface on the router.
Please refer to the attached detailed design document. It contains a wealth of important information. Design document [url removed, login to view] - [url removed, login to view] change: Added missing CLI args for Perl client app.
See detailed design document (attached) for a full list of deliverables. 1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
