\1. An alternative to a LAN is simply a big timesharing system with terminals for all users. Give two advantages of a client-server system using a LAN.
这是对比 LAN C/S 架构和时分复用架构。显然前者更好，原因随便两个：
\2. The performance of a client-server system is strongly influenced by two major network characteristics: the bandwidth of the network (that is, how many bits/sec it can transport) and the latency (that is, how many seconds it takes for the first bit to get from the client to the server). Give an example of a network that exhibits high bandwidth but also high latency. Then give an example of one that has both low bandwidth and low latency.
\3. Besides bandwidth and latency, what other parameter is needed to give a good characterization of the quality of service offered by a network used for (i) digitized voice traffic? (ii) video traffic? (iii) financial transaction traffic?
\4. A factor in the delay of a store-and-forward packet-switching system is how long it takes to store and forward a packet through a switch. If switching time is 10 μsec, is this likely to be a major factor in the response of a client-server system where the client is in New York and the server is in California? Assume the propagation speed in copper and fiber to be 2/3 the speed of light in vacuum.
\5. A client-server system uses a satellite network, with the satellite at a height of 40,000km. What is the best-case delay in response to a request?
\9. A disadvantage of a broadcast subnet is the capacity wasted when multiple hosts attempt to access the channel at the same time. As a simplistic example, suppose that time is divided into discrete slots, with each of the n hosts attempting to use the channel with probability p during each slot. What fraction of the slots will be wasted due to collisions?
\10. What are two reasons for using layered protocols? What is one possible disadvantage of using layered protocols?
\11. What is the principle difference between connectionless communication and connection-oriented communication? Give one example of a protocol that uses
- connectionless communication 2)connection-oriented communication.
\12. Two networks each provide reliable connection-oriented service. One of them offers a reliable byte stream and the other offers a reliable message stream. Are these identical? If so, why is the distinction made? If not, give an example of how they differ.
\15. In some networks, the data link layer handles transmission errors by requesting that damaged frames be retransmitted. If the probability of a frame’s being damaged is p, what is the mean number of transmissions required to send a frame? Assume that acknowledgements are never lost.
\16. Which of the OSI layers and TCP/IP layers handles each of the following:
Dividing the transmitted bit stream into frames
Determining which route through the subnet to use.
\17. If the unit exchanged at the data link level is called a frame and the unit exchanged at the network level is called a packet, do frames encapsulate packets or do packets encapsulate frames? Explain your answer.
\18. A system has an n-layer protocol hierarchy. Applications generate messages of length M bytes. At each of the layers, an h-byte header is added. What fraction of the network bandwidth is filled with headers?
\20. What is the main difference between TCP and UDP?
\22. When a file is transferred between two computers, two acknowledgement strategies are possible. In the first one, the file is chopped up into packets, which are individually acknowledged by the receiver, but the file transfer as a whole is not acknowledged. In the second one, the packets are not acknowledged individually, but the entire file is acknowledged when it arrives. Discuss these two approaches.
\30. Suppose there is a change in the service (set of operations) provided by layer k. How does this impact services at layers k-1 and k+1?
\35. The ping program allows you to send a test packet to a given location and see how long it takes to get there and back. Try using ping to see how long it takes to get from your location to several known locations. From these data, plot the one-way transit time over the Internet as a function of distance. It is best to use universities since the location of their servers is known very accurately. For example, berkeley.edu is in Berkeley, California; mit.edu is in Cambridge, Massachusetts; vu.nl is in Amsterdam; The Netherlands; www.usyd.edu.au is in Sydney, Australia; and www.uct.ac.za is in Cape Town, South Africa.

Assume that link A-R1 can support a maximum frame size of 1024 bytes including a 14-byte frame header, link R1-R2 can support a maximum frame size of 512 bytes, including an 8-byte frame header, and link R2-B can support a maximum frame size of 512 bytes including a 12-byte frame header.

IP 包头的最小长度是 20B. 要传输的 IP 包大小为 920+20=940B

LEN=460, ID=1, DF=0, MF=0, 0FF=(500-20)/8=60

公网 <---- 路由器 1<---- 内网 ----> 路由器 2---> 公网
增加 NAT 之后，内部地址映射到公网地址，那么由于一个内部地址不能同时映射到两个公网地址，所以如果一端断开，另一端是无法访问的。

\18. What is the total size of the minimum TCP MTU, including TCP and IP overhead but not including data link layer overhead?
TCP 最小 MSS 为 536 octets，IHL 20 字节，TCP HEADER 20 字节，所以 IP MTU 至少 576 octets
\19. Datagram fragmentation and reassembly are handled by IP and are invisible to TCP. Does this mean that TCP does not have to worry about data arriving in the wrong order?
IP 有分段机制，TCP 同样有分段机制，TCP 分段的原因是 MSS，IP 分片的原因是 MTU。二者不是必须相干的，如果是 TCP 的分段造成的乱序，需要 TCP 自己解决。
\21. A process on host 1 has been assigned port p, and a process on host 2 has been assigned port q. Is it possible for there to be two or more TCP connections between these two ports at the same time?
不能，TCP 连接的唯一性就是源 IP: 端口和目的 IP: 端口所确定的
\22. In Fig. 6-36 we saw that in addition to the 32-bit acknowledgement field, there is an ACK bit in the fourth word. Does this really add anything? Why or why not?
\25. Consider the effect of using slow start on a line with a 10-msec round-trip time and no congestion. The receive window is 24 KB and the maximum segment size is 2 KB. How long does it take before the first full window can be sent?
初始 CWND=2KB，需要经过左移（平方） $\log_2 (12)≈3.58$ 次，向上取整 4 次，每次耗时 10ms，所以需要大概 40ms 达到最大窗口速率。
\26. Suppose that the TCP congestion window is set to 18 KB and a timeout occurs. How big will the window be if the next four transmission bursts are all successful? Assume that the maximum segment size is 1 KB.
阈值 18KB，超时，阈值减半，变成 9KB，重新慢启动。1«4=16>9，因此经过四次成功传输，窗口大小变成了 9KB
\27. If the TCP round-trip time, RTT, is currently 30 msec and the following acknowledgements come in after 26, 32, and 24 msec, respectively, what is the new RTT estimate using the Jacobson algorithm? Use α = 0.9.
求得：29.6, 29.84, 29.256
\28. A TCP machine is sending full windows of 65,535 bytes over a 1-Gbps channel that has a 10-msec one-way delay. What is the maximum throughput achievable? What is the line efficiency?
往返时延 20ms，速率 65535*8/0.02=26Mbps 左右，利用率 2.6% 左右
主机甲和乙已建立了 TCP 连接，甲始终以 MSS=1KB 大小的段发送数据，并一直有数据发送；乙每收到一个数据段都会发出一个接收窗口为 10KB 的确认段。若甲在 t 时刻发生超时时拥塞窗口为 8KB，则从 t 时刻起，不再发生超时的情况下，请计算经过 10 个 RTT 后，甲的发送窗口是多少？
剩余 8 个线性增，4+8=12KB.
