What's New

As part of an NSF grant with Zongming Fei and James Griffioen at the University of Kentucky and with the help of Eric Knibbe, a Calvin student, there is new material on using an Emulab to do the experiments in Part IV of the book. You can get information on how to do that by looking under Chapter 14. Faculty will find complete information for many of the experiments, and students will find hints. Not all of the experiments are suitable for an Emulab environment (although I am working on shortening that list), but for the experiments that are suitable there will evenutally be links from that experiment's page providing help on performing that. experiment on an Emulab.
