I am taking an IT Security class, We have a project that requires students to attack each other. The games consist of offensive and defensive challenges, with each team keeping its own network and services up and running while attacking the competiothers. The OS is windows.
I have no idea how to do that, Would you advice me of some web sites that guide me through that?

Generally speaking, have your defense and attacks planned out and practiced before the actual challenge.  Don't waste time downloading tools.  Have everything you need on a couple of USB drives (make sure you have backups).

If your opponent is relying on downloading patches/tools, get them offline with DoS attacks.  Don't forget the infrastructure if it is fair game (switches, routers, etc).  Try to get an inventory of what will be in the simulation and build your attacks and defenses around that.

Password cracking tools (Cain & Able, John the Ripper, etc) and vulnerability scanners ( Nessus ) are a must.

The actual step by step is something you will need to work out yourself.  Be careful during your research.  You don't want to get your computer infected with Malware.
