Building a simulated internet ... one bit at a time ...

My how Christmas erodes those neurons and worse how a little time away from the tech addles minds even worse. Today has been a the first steps on a delayed path to the (re)creation of a simulated internet. Unlike early instances, this has to hold up to the aggregated assault of at least 1000 different connections.

Fun eh ... having built one side of the bargain, I as yet have to build the other transatlantic (more Pacific) core and work on the clients and how they may connect.

I think I have come up with an addressing methodology that would make sense and scale allowing for at least 255 core switches each hosting around 250 connections.

There are more (many more) refinements and plenty of opportunities to drag forth forgotten networking skills and put more time into troubleshooting the networks I create.
