International Business Machines, Gerald R Woods, April 28, 1992: US05109483 (71 worldwide citation)

Enhanced type 2.1 nodes for SNA networks provide network routing of information between non-adjacent network nodes and program-to-program linkage across the network. These nodes are called "advanced peer to peer networking" (abbreviated APPN) nodes. Network state information, describing the topology ...

Alan E Baratz, George A Grover: Control point session synchronization in a network. International Business Machines Corporation, Jack M Arnold, May 15, 1990: US04926414 (7 worldwide citation)

In a computer network a logical duplex session between control points of adjacent network nodes is comprised of two physical half duplex sessions. Each half duplex session includes the send session of one node and the receive session of the adjacent node. In the event of a session failure at either ...
