This document assumes that one is familiar with the workings
of a non-connected simple IP network (e.g. a few 4.2 BSD
systems on an Ethernet not connected to anywhere else).
Appendix A contains remedial information to get one to this
point. Its purpose is to get that person, familiar with a
simple net, versed in the "oral tradition" of the Internet
to the point that that net can be connected to the Internet
with little danger to either. It is not a tutorial, it
consists of pointers to other places, literature, and hints
which are not normally documented. Since the Internet is a
dynamic environment, changes to this document will be made
regularly. The author welcomes comments and suggestions.
This is especially true of terms for the glossary (definitions
are not necessary).
In the beginning there was the ARPAnet, a wide area
experimental network connecting hosts and terminal servers
together. Procedures were set up to regulate the allocation
of addresses and to create voluntary standards for the network.
