Novell TCP/IP
The TCP/IP Suite of Products

The Novell® TCP/IP stack is compliant with the latest RFCs and is multiprocessor (MP) enabled. The transport layer (TCP & UDP) is completely MP enabled so that the stack can process any TCP/UDP connections on any processor. These features take advantage of the multiple processors available and make the stack scale more than it does on a uni-processor machine.
