NT Without Domain Controllers
Chris Stradtman, SYSNET Inc.
Four people set up and support 50+ NT 4.0 client sites using an NT domain served
by SAMBA on a Linux box. Result: Low cost, low on-site support time, reasonable
Providing Reliable NT Desktop Services
by Avoiding NT Server
Thomas A. Limoncelli, Lucent Technologies/Bell Labs
How does Bell Labs integrate NT and UNIX? We use open protocols to build a rich
and reliable user environment. We'll give you the technical underpinnings--and
how to sell the idea to management.
University Issues Panel
William Annis, University of Wisconsin
David Brumley, Stanford University
Robyn Landers, University of Waterloo
Kathy Penn, University of Maryland
Moderator: Jon Finke, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
In this highly interactive session, a panel of university sysadmins and the
audience will discuss problems common to the realm of academia.
Win a WiP!
Session Chair: Peg Schafer, Harvard University
Short, pithy, and fun, Work in Progress reports introduce interesting new or
on-going work. Fast paced and spontanious, the WiPs feature new ideas
or novel solutions to old problems. The number of presenters is limited,
so reserve your WiPs slot by sending a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Work in Progress reports are generally five-minute presentations;
really interesting work can get more air time.
Managing Your Network(s): Corporate Mergers & Acquisitions, or, You Got
Your Chocolate in My Peanut Butter
Eliot Lear, Cisco Systems
Is your company growing by purchasing other companies or by being purchased?
What do you need to do to your network to prepare for a merger? What do you need
to do to complete a merger? What tools will help you? We'll discuss routing
systems, addressing, firewalls, and network management tools and processes. And
of course there will be war stories!

State of the Art in Internet Measurement and Data Analysis: Topology,
Workload, Performance and Routing Statistics
kc claffy, cooperative association for internet data analysis
This talk discusses the collection, analysis, and visualization of four forms of
Internet traffic data. Topology data describe network link infrastructure
at a variety of protocol layers. Workload measurements involve the
collection of traffic information from a point within a network. Performance
measurements involve the introduction of traffic into the network in order
to monitor delay between specific end-points. Routing data includes data
from Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) routing tables, which reflect the transit
relationships between individual Autonomous Systems (ASes) at a given point in
The talk describes the role of each measurement area in understanding Internet
behavior and evolution; offers state-of-the-art analysis examples; outlines
current research priorities; and describes obstacles to making progress in each
