Francois Fluckiger


The objective of this series of two lectures is to present the fundamentals of networking, to help those involved in scientific computing to design systems or programmes involving at-a-distance actions, as well as to better understand their behaviours. Therefore, the aim is not to dwell on the nitty-gritty details, formats, or protocols, but to extract and synthetize the knowledge useful to the non-networkers. The first lecture will focus on the transport network and will present the fundamental principles of IP, its historical limits and recent enhancements that led it to become a universal transport technology.
