NOTES ON THE MEETING

The MIT C Gateway -- MIT - Martin

Postel: A description of the gateway implemented at MIT. The gateway was first developed by Noel Chiappa. It is written in C. The MIT environment has 32 internal networks which are treated as subnets of the MITNET on the Internet. The MIT gateways then do subnet routing in their interior protocol. The subnet routing scheme is similar to GGP. Liza has added an EGP implementation to this gateway.

Muuss:

Campus network/project Athena Dynamic routing Congestion control - grad student +---------------+---+ Class A net : | 18|subnet|res|host| +---------------+---+

"Bridges" forward between subnets.

Campus Network and Project Athena 65 VAX 750s, 200 IBM PCs.

Hosts: Now = 400, 1986 = 3,000, 1990 = 10,000

Subnets: Now = 42, 1985 = 60, 1990 = 200, (4 subnets/building) ...
