- A non-profit
corporation, established in 1987, whose mission is to
advance the use of computer networks to improve
research and education. [Source: RFC1392]
- Frequently Asked
Question [Source: RFC1392]
- Fife and Tayside
Metropolitan Area Network.
- Fawn Book
- the document produced
for the JNT defining the Simple Screen Management
- See: Fibre Distributed
- Formerly Further
Education Development Agency, now called Learning and
Skills Development Agency (LSDA).
- Formerly Further
Education Funding Council, now called Learning and
Skills Council (LSC).
- Federal Information
- One of the connection
points between the American governmental internets and
the Internet. [Source: SURA]
- Federal Networking
- The coordinating group
of representatives from those federal agencies
involved in the development and use of federal
networking, especially those networks using TCP/IP and
the Internet. Current members include representatives
from DOD, DOE, DARPA, NSF, NASA, and HHS. See also:
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, National
Science Foundation. [Source: RFC1392]
- Fibre Distributed
Data Interface (FDDI)
- A high-speed (100Mb/s)
LAN standard. The underlying medium is fibre optics,
and the topology is a dual-attached, counter- rotating
token ring. See also: Local Area Network, token ring.
- file transfer
- The copying of a file
from one computer to another over a computer network.
See also: File Transfer Protocol, Kermit, Gopher,
World Wide Web. [Source: RFC1983]
- File Transfer
- A protocol which allows
a user on one host to access, and transfer files to
and from, another host over a network. Also, FTP is
usually the name of the program the user invokes to
execute the protocol. The IP version is defined in STD
959. See also: anonymous FTP, FTAM. [Source:
Compare the Unix
"Anonymous FTP" (see above) with the UK JNT
Network Independent File Transfer Protocol or NIFTP
(now almost extinct), also known as "Blue
Book" (see above). The Unix commands are
"ftp" and "hhcp" respectively.
- A protocol, defined in RFC
1288, that allows information about a system or
user on a system to be retrived. Finger also refers to
the commonly used program which retrieves this
information. Information about all logged in users, as
well is information about specific users may be
retrieved from local or remote systems. Some sites
consider finger to be a security risk and have either
disabled it, or replaced it with a simple message.
- Federal Information
- See: Federal Information
- A strong opinion and/or
criticism of something, usually as a frank
inflammatory statement, in an electronic mail message.
It is common to precede a flame with an indication of
pending fire (i.e., FLAME ON!). Flame Wars occur when
people start flaming other people for flaming when
they shouldn't have. See also: Electronic Mail.
- See: Four Letter
- See: Federal Networking
- For Your Information
- A subseries of RFCs that
are not technical standards or descriptions of
protocols. FYIs convey general information about
topics related to TCP/IP or the Internet. See also:
Request For Comments, STD. [Source: RFC1392]
- See: Fully Qualified
- A piece of a packet.
When a router is forwarding an IP packet to a network
that has a maximum packet size smaller than the packet
size, it is forced to break up that packet into
multiple fragments. These fragments will be
reassembled by the IP layer at the destination host.
See also: Maximum Transmission Unit. [Source: RFC1392]
- The IP process in which
a packet is broken into smaller pieces to fit the
requirements of a physical network over which the
packet must pass. See also: reassembly. [Source:
- A frame is a datalink
layer "packet" which contains the header and
trailer information required by the physical medium.
That is, network layer packets are encapsulated to
become frames. See also: datagram, encapsulation,
packet. [Source: RFC1392]
- Community-based bulletin
board system with email, information services,
interactive communications, and conferencing. Freenets
are funded and operated by individuals and volunteers
-- in one sense, like public television. They are part
of the National Public Telecomputing Network (NPTN),
an organization based in Cleveland, Ohio, devoted to
making computer telecommunication and networking
services as freely available as public libraries.
- File Transfer, Access,
and Management. The OSI remote file service and
protocol. [Source: RFC1208]
- See: File Transfer
- Fully Qualified
Domain Name (FQDN)
- The FQDN is the full
name of a system, rather than just its hostname. For
example, "venera" is a hostname and "venera.isi.edu"
is an FQDN. See also: hostname, Domain Name System.
