A graph model analysis of computer communications protocols by Jonathan Bruce Postel( Book )

9 editions published between 1974 and 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The large scale computer networks being constructed demand that for effective utilization, protocols be established to regulate the communications between the attached computer systems. Assurance that these communications protocols are well behaved (e.g. do not deadlock) must be achieved. This report focuses on the analysis of computer-to-computer communications protocols using graph modeling techniques. Computer-to-computer communications protocols are examined and the issues of error control, flow control, multiplexing, and synchronization are identified and discussed. A sample protocol is developed. The UCLA Graph Model is explained and used to model and analyze the sample protocol. The ARPANET Initial Connection Protocol is also modeled and analyzed with significant results. The concept of a graph module is introduced. Graph modules are defined and used to simplify the model of the sample protocol. (Author)
ARPANET protocol handbook( Book )

5 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Internet mail protocols( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document contains RFC 821 (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol-SMTP) and RFC 822 (Standard for the Format of ARPA Internet Text Messages), which are the basic protocols that support all network mail. The SMTP is independent of the particular transmission subsystem, and requires only a reliable ordered data stream channel. Appendices describe the use of SMTP with various transport services, The second part of this document describes syntax requirements and options for computer messages sent by electronic mail. These RFCs update information contained in the Internet Protocol Transition Workbook. Additional keywords: Standards; Formats; Specifications; and Information transfer
DOD standard transmission control protocol( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is intended for use as a highly reliable host-to-host protocol between hosts in packet-switched computer communication networks, and especially in interconnected systems of such networks. This document describes the functions to be performed by the Transmission Control Protocol, the program that implements it, and its interface to programs or users that require its services. Computer communication systems are playing an increasingly important role in military, government, and civilian environments. This document primarily focuses its attention on military computer communication requirements, especially robustness in the presence of communication unreliability and availability in the presence of congestion, but many of these problems are found in the civilian and government sector as well. As strategic and tactical computer communication networks are developed and deployed, it is essential to provide means of interconnecting them and to provide standard interprocess communication protocols which can support a broad range of applications
Internet Telenet protocol and options( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

DoD Standard Internet Protocol by Jonathan Bruce Postel( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Internet Protocol is designed for use in interconnected systems of packet-switched computer communication networks. Such as system has been called a 'catenet'. The internet protocol provides for transmitting blocks of data called datagrams from sources to destinations, where sources and destinations are hosts identified by fixed length addresses. The internet protocol also provides for fragmentation and reassembly of long datagrams, if necessary, for transmission through 'small packet' networks. This document is based on five earlier editions of the ARPA Internet Protocol Specification, and the present text draws heavily from them. There have been many contributors to this work both in terms of concepts and in terms of text. This edition revises the details security, compartmentation, and precedence features of the internet protocol. (Author)

Name server design for distributed systems by Paul V Mockapetris( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Name servers are programs that provide a uniform method of naming resources and retrieving information about those resources in the context of a distributed system. This paper examines the main issues in name server design and considers some contemporary name servers in order to classify the common goals, methods, and tradeoffs. (Author)
Internet protocol : DARPA Internet Program protocol specification( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document specifies the DoD Standard Internet Protocol. This document is based on six earlier editions, of the APRA Internet Protocol Specification, and the present text draws heavily from them. There have been many contributors to this work both in terms of concepts and in terms of text. This edition, revises aspects of addressing, error handling, option codes, and the security, precedence, compartments, and handling restriction features of the internet protocol
Multimedia conferencing : has it come of age? by Eve M Schooler( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Multimedia conferencing continues to be an active research area with a diversity of systems being developed for a variety of situations. In particular, multimedia conferencing is central to the idea of the Collaboratory, an electronic environment for conducting science. As a vehicle for telecollaboration, multimedia conferencing promises to provide a meeting place for those needing to work cooperatively from afar. This paper reviews current research projects in telecollaboration. We first frame the discussion of multimedia conferencing with a nomenclature and taxonomy. We compare local versus remote conferencing, touching on issues in system architecture and network communications requirements. We then examine the recurring problems researchers have observed and the solutions they have chosen

Terminal-to-Host Protocol Specification by Stanford Research Institute. Augmentation Research Center( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is the specification of the Terminal-to-Host Protocol (THP) which serves as both the terminal-to-terminal and terminal-to-process protocol for the AUTODIN II network. The AUTODIN II system provides the capability for geographically distributed computers, called hosts, to communicate with each other. The hosts are a diverse set of computers of differing manufacture, speed, word size, and operating system. The AUTODIN II system provides a mechanism for communication between hosts, the Transmission Control Protocol (THP) specifies how the hosts use this mechanism to provide communication services to processes, and finally, the THP provides a mechanism for offering services to human users. The reader of this document is assumed to be familiar with the concepts of the AUTODIN II system, TCP, and operating system concepts. In particular, the reader is expected to have read the AUTODIN II Specification and the TCP Specification. It is intended that the information presented here be sufficiently complete enough to allow a competent system programmer to implement a program module to carry out this protocol. This document draws heavily from the ARPA Network protocol documents on the Telnet Protocol. We wish to acknowledge the efforts of the many contributors to that collection. (Author)

Internet Datagram Protocol Specification. Version 4( )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Internet Protocol is designed for use in interconnected systems of packet-switched computer communication networks. Such a system has been called a 'catenet'. The internet protocol provides for transmitting blocks of data called datagrams from sources to destinations, where sources and destinations are hosts identified by fixed length addresses. The internet protocol also provides for fragmentation and reassembly of long datagrams, if necessary, for transmission through 'small packet' networks. The internet protocol is specifically limited in scope to provide the functions necessary to deliver a package of bits (an internet datagram) from a source to a destination over an interconnected system of networks. There are no mechanisms to promote data reliability, flow control, sequencing, or other services commonly found in host-to-host protocols. This protocol is called on by host-to-host protocols in an internet environment. This protocol calls on local network protocols to carry the internet packet to the next gateway or destination host
