Students in my AP CS class decided that it would be fun to test out their TCP/IP knowledge by setting up a mini- LAN in one of our old computer rooms. They planned out the whole thing during after school meetings with our Computer Club.

 Yesterday (yes Sunday) each student brought in their own computer systems to school, and they linked them together. They decided that it would be kind of boring to just do simple file sharing to test their LAN so they set up a “Counter-Strike” match. It was very impressive, and I was very proud of them for pulling it off without many glitches. Here are a few screen shots of their set up.

 Brendan, the network admin for this experiment was using Windows Server 2003. The next phase is they want to start learning how develop their own half-life 2 mod using Visual Studio 2005.
