Emphasis is placed on the theory and practice associated with the implementation and use of the most common process-to-process communications associated with UNIX. The inter-process communications comprise both local and distributed architectures. The distributed communications protocols include those most widely implemented and used: the worldwide Internet protocol suite [the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and the U.S. government-mandated International Organization for Standardization (ISO) protocol suite]. Practical skills are developed, including the ability to implement and configure protocol servers (daemons) and their clients. Students are expected to have working knowledge of UNIX.

Course prerequisite(s):
