Everything about parsing
So. Serializing IPv4 packets. Easy? Well, not exactly.
IPv4 was annoying to parse, because we had 3-bit integers, and 13-bit integers, and who knows what else. Serializing it is going to be exactly the same.
Alright. ALRIGHT. I know, we're all excited, but let's think about what we're doing again.
So we've managed to look at real network traffic and parse it completely. We've also taken some ICMP packets, parsed them, and then serialized them right back and we got the exact same result.
In the last part, we've finally parsed some IPv4 packets. We even found a way to filter only IPv4 packets that contain ICMP packets.
Hello and welcome to Part 11 of this series, wherein we finally use some of the code I prototyped way back when I was planning this series.
Where are we standing?
Now that we've found the best way to find the "default network interface"... what can we do with that interface?
