Abstract

This memo intends to provide a complete discussion of the protocols and techniques used to embed DoD standard Internet Protocol datagrams (and its associated higher level protocols) on Network Systems Corporation's HYPERchannel equipment. This document is directed toward network planners and implementors who are already familiar with the TCP/IP protocol suite and the techniques used to carry TCP/IP traffic on common networks such as the DDN or the Ethernet. No great familiarity with NSC products is assumed; an appendix is devoted to a review of NSC technologies and protocols.

Internet Protocol on Network Systems HYPERchannel Protocol Specification

STATUS OF THIS MEMO

The intent of this document is to provide a complete discussion of the protocols and techniques used to embed DoD standard Internet Protocol datagrams (and its associated higher level protocols) on Network Systems Corporation’s HYPERchannel [1] equipment. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

This document is intended for network planners and implementors who are already familiar with the TCP/IP protocol suite and the techniques used to carry TCP/IP traffic on common networks such as the DDN or Ethernet. No great familiarity with NSC products is assumed; an appendix is devoted to a review of NSC technologies and protocols.

At the time of this first RFC edition, the contents of this document has already been reviewed by about a dozen vendors and users active in the use of TCP/IP on HYPERchannel media. Comments and suggestions are still welcome (and implementable,) however.

Any comments or questions on this specification may be directed to:
