  • 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… CONTINUE READING
