A good place to start is to write something strictly in userland that logs
in and generates traffic to the target. When I wrote my target it was
initially all in userland. After, the protocol handling had proven to be 
robust I moved it into the kernel.

If you try to familiarize yourself with too many things at once, it may
take you a long time to get started.
