Abstract : This report is intended to describe communications concepts for the DTroll JKim,85 & Mage,86 distributed database system. The report addresses the subject matter with the assumption that the reader has a basic background knowledge of UNIX (UNIX is a trademark of Bell Laboratories). For a detailed and in-depth understanding of the background and concepts surrounding the DTroll system, the reader is encouraged to obtain the references listed at the end of this report. In addition, informal documents are available through the project office. This paper is presented in three parts, Chapter 1 discusses the background and general structure of Dtroll, as well as establishing some of the foundation for the remainder of the paper. Chapter 2 describes the software module for establishing a server's communications. Chapter 3 describes the software module of establishing a client's communications. Due to the similarity of INITSERVSOCKET and RQSTCONNECT, Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 contain a significant amount of repetitious information. This is intentional to provide continuity and ease of understanding.
