A LAN Protocol for Efficient File Transfer on Linux Based System
Data sharing has always been an cruicial task over a LAN. Considering the existing TCP/IP model only network and transport layers are of immense importance. As the authors know that, TCP defines the actual port numbers on which connections are made by the applications and of course, the local IP address of a machine, it stands as a candidate for data communication between applications over the internet and also in a LAN .On the other hand Internet Protocol (IP) just takes care to deliver the packets to its destination. In this paper, they are proposing a scheme to bypass the IP in a LAN environment.
