A reliable method for inter-computer packet transport in multi-process and multi-computer environments includes acknowledgments of received packets. To enhance the reliability and fast recovery of lost packets, a bit-mapped message is used for selective acknowledgments by which individual messages may be selected for retransmission. Further functionalities cover the cases where packets may have been received out-of-order, or an acknowledgment was lost.
