9P(or thePlan 9 Filesystem ProtocolorStyx) is anetwork protocoldeveloped for thePlan 9 from Bell Labsdistributed operating systemas the means of connecting the components of a Plan 9 system. Files are key objects in Plan 9. They representwindows, networkconnections,processes, and almost anything else available in the operating system. UnlikeNFS, 9P encouragescachingand also servingsynthetic files.
The Application Configuration Access Protocol (ACAP) is a protocol for storing and synchronizing general configuration and preference data. It was originally developed so that IMAP clients can easily access address books, user options, and other data on a central server and be kept in sync across all clients.
AccessBuilder (Access Builder) is a family of dial-in remote access servers that give mobile computer users and remote office workers full access to workgroup, departmental, and enterprise network resources. Remote users dial into AccessBuilder via analog or digital connections to get direct, transparent links to Ethernet and Token Ring LANs-just as if they were connected locally. AccessBuilder products support a broad range of computing platforms, network operating systems, and protocols to fit a variety of network environments. They provide multi-protocol bridging and routing for wide area Client-to-LAN connections and remote LAN extensions to the central site.
a directory service created by Microsoft for Windows domain networks, responsible for authenticating and authorizing all users and computers within a network of Windows domain type, assigning and enforcing security policies for all computers in a network and installing or updating software on network computers
AirPlay (previously called AirTunes) is a proprietary protocol stack/suite developed by Apple Inc. that allows wireless streaming of audio, video and photos, together with related metadata between devices.
Administration Delocalisee Par Emissions Securisee (remote administration using secured messages)
ALPES is a client server protocol build on top of TCP. Its main goal is to secure the administration of a network of computers by transferring configuration text files between an information server and its clients and executing programs on them.
Active Networks is a networking technology used to enable unique processing of each network packet. This is accomplished by sending the proper processing code along with the payload of each packet, or in a separate control flow. This code can then be executed by certain nodes, called Active Nodes, inside the network.
ANSAware is an infrastructure for developing and running distributed application. It is available for a number of operating system like SunOS, HP/UX, VMS and MS DOS. A factory server is able to create server processes called capsules, and interfaces for a certain service type dynamically on the local computer node. References to these interfaces are mediated by a server called trader.
AOL Instant Messenger Text Chat is the instant messsaging part of AOL Instant Messenger, a software that allows users to communicate either through AIM contacts or Facebook/Google-talk contacts and share photos. AIM uses mixed protocols to support its rich feature sets, which include OSCAR, HTTP, STUN, UDP, TCP as well as SIP / RTP.
PowerChute is a computer program by American Power Conversion (APC) used to control the uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) the company produces. It provides unattended shutdown of servers and workstations in the event of an extended power outage. It also monitors and logs the UPS status.
Apple juice P2P file sharing is a semi-centralized peer-to-peer file sharing network. The network is decentralized over many servers. It offers server and client software for Applejuicenet. The Applejuicenet is used for content distribution with a given Hashlink. The system has a built-in search tool to search servers for keywords.
Apple Remote Desktop (ARD), is a desktop management system for Mac OS X produced by Apple Inc. which allows users to remotely control or monitor other computers over a network. Apple Remote Desktop replaced a similar product called Apple Network Assistant.
Apple QuickTime is an extensible proprietary multimedia framework developed by Apple Inc., capable of handling various formats of digital video, picture, sound, panoramic images, and interactivity. QuickTime is available for Windows XP and later, as well as Mac OS X Leopard and later operating systems.
AppleShare is a product from Apple which implemented various network services such as file server, a print server, web server, electronic mail server. AppleShare IP is a version of AppleShare that supports the use of TCP/IP protocol stack. AppleShare IP WebAdmin is the remote administration service of AppleShare IP where an administrator can perform administrative operations using a web browser.
AppleTalk Echo Protocol (AEP) is a transport layer protocol designed to test the reachability of network nodes. AEP generates packets to be sent to the network node and is identified in the Type field of a packet as an AEP packet.
The Zone Information Protocol was the protocol by which AppleTalk network numbers were associated with zone names. Azonewas a subdivision of the network that made sense to humans. While a network number had to be assigned to a topologically-contiguous section of the network, a zone could include several different discontiguous portions of the network.
Audio over HTTP represents a classification of transferring Audio data (such as radio and audio) streaming over the HTTP protocol. If a flow is classified as a more specific protocol, it will not be classified by audio-over-http.
The audit daemon, auditd, operates as a server, monitoring /dev/audit for local audit data, monitoring a known port for data from remote cooperating audit daemons, and monitoring an AF_UNIX socket for input from the system administrator.
The Identification Protocol (formerly called the Authentication Server Protocol) provides a means to determine the identity of a user of a particular TCP connection. Given a TCP port number pair, it returns a character string which identifies the owner of that connection on the server's system.
AX.25 is a data link layer protocol derived from the X.25 protocol suite and designed for use by amateur radio operators. It is used extensively on amateur packet radio networks.It occupies the first, second, and often the third layers of the OSI networking model, and is responsible for transferring data (encapsulated in packets) between nodes and detecting errors introduced by the communications channel.
