Pup is the name of an internet packet format (PARC Universal Packet), a hierarchy of protocols, and a style of internetwork communication. The fundamental abstraction is an end-to-end media-in dependent internetwork datagram. Higher levels of functionality are achieved by end-to-end protocols that are strictly a matter of agreement among the communicating end processes. This report explores important design issues, sets forth principles that have guided the Pup design, discusses the present… Expand
The ARPA Internet Protocol
TLDR
An overview of the Internet Protocol and the operation of the gateway computers in the ARPA internet system is presented. Expand
Local networking and internetworking in the V-system
TLDR
The use of server-based "intelligent gateways" to provide internetworking using standard protocols in conjunction with an efficient light-weight protocol for V IPC on a local network, addressing some reliability and security issues that arise with local networks. Expand

Managing transient internetwork links in the Xerox Internet
The Xerox Research Internet, which has been in operation within Xerox for over a decade now, is composed of some 200 geographically dispersed Ethernet local area networks [1,2]. Not all networks inExpand
Managing transient internetwork links in the Xerox Internet
TLDR
This paper describes an experimental facility, developed for the management of transient internetwork communication links, allowing high level application programs to dynamically alter the Internet topology, without end-users being involved, or even aware of what is happening. Expand
Internetwork Protocol Approaches
TLDR
The motivation for interconnecting networks is to provide one or more consistent services to the set of users of the interconnected networks and the role of internetwork protocols is discussed. Expand
Sirpent: A High-Performance Internetworking Approach
TLDR
Sirpent™ (Source Internetwork Routing Protocol with Extended Network Transfer) is described, a new approach to an internetwork architecture that makes source routing the basis for interconnection, rather than an option as in IP. Expand
Internetworking: an analysis and proposal
TLDR
This thesis will develop the functional requirements for an "ideal" internetwork, describe two current methods for internetworking, and analyze these methods against the ideal internetwork. Expand
Sirpent: a high-performance internetworking approach
TLDR
Sirpent#8482; (Source Internetwork Routing Protocol with Extended Network Transfer) is described, a new approach to an internetwork architecture that makes source routing the basis for interconnection, rather than an option as in IP. Expand
Addressing in internetwork protocols
TLDR
This thesis examines the use of addresses in internet protocols, and shows that the general use of the loose source route mechanism is the best way to achieve exible, e cient, and evolvable routing and addressing. Expand

A Protocol for Packet Network Intercommunication
A protocol that supports the sharing of resources that exist in different packet switching networks is presented. The protocol provides for variation in individual network packet sizes, transmissionExpand
Function-oriented protocols for the ARPA computer network
TLDR
It is now appropriate to review the development of protocols which have been constructed to promote particular substantive uses of the ARPANET, namely function-oriented protocols. Expand
Packet Fragmentation in Inter-Network Protokols
TLDR
A gateway into a network may choose 1) some form of intra-network fragmentation, providing reassembly of fragments before entering the next network, or 2)Some form of inter- network fragmentation, producing smaller inter-network packets which can propagate through subsequent networks. Expand
Issues in packet-network interconnection
TLDR
Issues such as the level of interconnection, the role of gateways, naming and addressing, flow and congestion control, accounting and access control, and basic internet services are discussed in detail. Expand

This paper describes some examples of HLP's (ARPA network voice and graphics protocols), and argues that modern techniques for expressing structure and control in programming languages should be applied to analogous problems in communication among application processes in a network. Expand

TLDR
Connection management functions are intimately involved in protocol reliability, and if not designed properly may result in deadlocks or old data eing erroneously delivered in place of current data. Expand
