    Help for my own transport layer protocol

    Hi everyone. Firstly i am new in this forum and i examine the other question and i should say that you are really helpful.
    About my problem. I want to write a new protocol on transport layer. These are the features that new protocol should include:
    -Real time
    -Concurrent transfer
    -Multipath and Multihoming

    the reason why i should write this protocol is in order to transport encoded video stream over 3G link.

    When i investigated TCP UDP or SCTP source codes, i couldnot understand them at all. What ı want is to help me about steps of the protocol writing or guideline about it. How should i start, is there any book or source about it (i couldnot find over my internet research). Even samples are fine for me.

    Best Regards

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    This is complex stuff. How much network-related software engineering have you done? You can get all of the TCP/IP protocols from the DDN Protocol Handbook Volumes 2 and 3, published by the US Defense Communication Agency, part of the Department of Defense. I found a set (all 3 volumes) on from a reseller for $55 the set (used), which is a good price. I think I paid about $50 each back in the late 80's.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
