Abstract : At many universities and institutions throughout the world it is now very common to have a network of computers, each running the Berkeley 4.3BSD version of UNIX or an equivalent version such as ULTRIX. This paper is to help users of these versions of UNIX to explore and experiment with the interprocess communications and networking facilities. We present a series of client/server programs that can be used as a model for writing distributed applications. The author describes how users can test and experiment with these programs. Readers are assumed to be familiar with the C programming language and some version of UNIX. Keywords: Message processing; Information exchange; Internetting; Input multiplexing; Data processing.
