(B-NET) Top level Unix Ethernet software developed at the University of
California at Berkeley. There are no formal specifications but UCB's 4.2BSD Unix
implementation on the VAX is the de facto standard. Distributed by Unisoft.
Includes net.o driver routines for specific hardware, pseudo ttys, daemons,
hostname command to set/get name, /etc/hosts database of names and Internet
addresses of other hosts, /etc/hosts.equiv host-wide database to control remote
access, .rhosts per user version of hosts.equiv.
UCB's implementation of the Internet Protocol includes trailers to improve
performance on paged memory management systems such as VAXen. These trailers are
an exception to the Internet Protocol specification.
