  • Patent number: 5410543
    Abstract: This invention provides a method for connecting a mobile computer to a computer network by using an address server. The mobile computer connects itself to a network and requests an address server to represent it on the network. The address server accepts packets intended for the mobile computer and redirects them to the current actual address of the mobile computer. As the mobile computer moves, it reports its new actual address to the address server, so that packets intended for the mobile computer can be redirected to the new actual address.

  • Patent number: 5377329
    Abstract: This invention relates to an apparatus and method for reducing the transmission of data on a data communications network by obtaining data from a cache rather than by transmitting the data. This method maintains an indexed cache of data from previous transmissions. Then, when duplicate information is to be transmitted, it can be replaced by a flag and an index to the cached data. This reduces the amount of data to be transmitted and increases the apparent rate of transfer.
