Abstract

Obtaining data from an unknown network node -within a small LAN with complex, multi functional nodes. A typical scenario when this problem occurs is when a node, in a local area nehvork of embedded real time systems, is powering up. The node that is powering up does not have any information about the network, there may, or may not, be a server in the network. The powering up node may, or may not, be the only node in the network.
