Computer Networking with Internet Protocols and Technology

For example, when sending data between Rutgers and Berkeley, it is likely that both computers will be on Ethernets. Thus they will both be prepared to handle 1500-octet datagrams. However the connection will at some point end up going over the Arpanet.

ICMP is similar to UDP, in that it handles messages that fit in one datagram. It doesn’t even have port numbers in its header.Since all ICMP messages are interpreted by the network software itself, no port numbers are needed to say where a ICMP message is supposed to go. Again, the header contains some additional fields that have not been discussed.

  • Quite a number of Wide Area networks are built by Internet service providers and are sold to people and companies via subscriptions.
  • The most serious problem is that the two ends don’t necessarily know about all of the steps in between.
  • When web pages are requested

Mutation Characterization And Protocols


This disease is brought on by a mutation that causes red blood cells to develop a crescent, or sickle form; this irregular form can result in a variety of well being issues. Some mutations may cause detrimental circumstances similar to Down syndrome or Klinefelter syndrome. However, many mutations are benign, and some even irrelevant, as a result of they exist in areas of DNA that are not actively used.

Vaccinia virus, a DNA virus of the poxvirus group, was used as a live vaccine in the eradication of smallpox. Recombinant vaccinia viruses are being developed that carry vaccinia virus DNA recombined with DNA from other sources (exogenous DNA) (Fig. 43-5). For instance, vaccinia virus strains carrying DNA coding for bacterial and viral antigens have been produced.

Recombination involves the exchange of genetic material between two associated viruses during coinfection of a bunch cell. Mutations can produce viruses with new antigenic … Read More
