Subject: RE: definitions for multihop, routing and synchronous


A couple of weeks ago I sent out a note on what I see as the definition(s)
of multi-hop routing. You may want to read it again as I believe that it may
help shed some light on this debate. There is also the reliable
messaging/multi-hop routing subteam that was created recently to help nail
down some of these issues.

Subject: definitions for multihop, routing and synchronous

As i recommend on the last conference call we need to define these three
words because different people have different ideas on what they mean.

synchronous - i am not sure if this is transport, application or mhs

multihop - is the ability to designate a sequential series of mhs for which
the message moves. this has nothing to do with the ip address, smtp or mq
series route.

routing - means relay, in which only the endpoints, the to and from, are
designated and the intermediate mhs makes decisions, transparent to the
endpoint on how it got there.

this is how i see the definitions. i am sure others have different ones. so
lets get an agreement on these are we will never solve the routing/multihop
issue in this decade.

best regards, rik
