UnixWare 7 includes a number of networking facilities
that give the administrator flexibility
in building a network.
Several facilities relieve the application of
the need to know
the underlying characteristics of the network.
Thus, the application can run on different networks
and still present a consistent interface to the user.
Two distinct styles of network service provision are supported.
One is the Berkeley style, implemented as ``r-commands''
The other style is the new
Networking Applications Architecture (NAA),
which is depicted in
``A Diagram of the Networking Applications Architecture''.
Its features are described below:
