Hi Experts,

I am writing SRMP sender program, and I dont know how to send SRMP_DATA, because I should send a packet , and then check if I receive ack for that packet, if not I will send the next packet, But I should keep track of each packet time_out, if for example,
I send packet1
t1=I get the current time
I check if I receive any thing
t2=I check the time
if (t2-t1)<2 seconds
I send packet2
and I should check again for timeout
I dont know exactly in which matter I should keep track of each packet and the timeout for each packet

this are some links of some websites how have done this before:

sorry, that makes no sense to me. You wrote:
"because I should send a packet , and then check if I receive ack for that packet, if not I will send the next packet"

If you do not have received the ack then this package is lost and you are going to send the next package? I would expect you retransmit that "lost" package.

Now as I understand is that you like to have a "reliable" protocol upon UDP. So the task you have to carry out are for me.
- keeping book about the send package, there transmittion time and there status
- dependen on the status you either "resend" packages or send the next package
- if you get an request that one package is missing you retransmit it.  

on the other side the following happens. The packages come in in an arbitrary order for that you keep a counter for the number of the package. You cashe the received packages till you get them all then you put them back into the right order.

If you see that package is missing after a certain time, you ask the sender to retransmit the package.

So you task is as I understand implementing this book-keeping. So go for it....
