IP routing

This chapter describes several problems raised by route selection in an Internet Protocol (IP) network. In an IP network, an IP packet with the destination address is transmitted by way of transit node(s) to the destination node. When a node receives an IP packet, it determines the next hop node to which the packet should be transmitted by referring to its routing table made by IP routing protocols. By repeating this process, a packet reaches its destination.
