Subject: Random Network Endpoint Technology (RNET)

The following is an explanation of how to accomplish setting up a path of communication between two RNET Hosts. Some of you may have already figured this out... now you have the definitive answer.

Consider this; You have two RNET Hosts, host A and host B. Both hosts wish to communicate with each other. Since both used un-advertised IP addresses, this seems impossible. The solution is to setup a route path between them so that the routers between them will forward packets destined for each of the two hosts. 

The operator of host A must contact the operator of host B through some other means of communication. The operator of host A need only acquire the, advertised, IP address of host B's gateway. Once this is done, host A sends an RNET Route Request specifying the host B's address as the target address and directs this request to the gateway of host B. The result is that all the routers in between host A and host B will have setup an RNET Route entry for host A as the RNET Host and with host B as the Target Host. At this point either host may initiate contact with the other as the routers between them will know where to forward their packet(s).

I hope this clears up any confusion or misunderstanding (or lack thereof.)
