Lab #3

In this assignment you will learn about the TCP protocol by analyzing traffic generated by uploading a file to a web server.

Follow the instructions in this guide. You should use this recorded trace of someone uploading Alice in Wonderland to a web server. You don't have to record your own trace and thus can skip questions 3 and 14.

For each question you answer, you should include the relevant packets from the trace. You can do this by using the print to file capability in Wireshark and then printing the traces individually and pasting them into a master document. You can use the highlighting feature of Word or OpenOffice to annotate the traces. Note you can ask for output of only a selected packet, a set of marked packet, and can also specify how much detail to include about each packet.

Submission. Submit your lab writeup electronically via Moodle. You only need to submit one writeup for each lab pair. Be sure to include both your names at the top of the writeup!
