2.4. Gateways

2.4. Gateways

Gateways implement internet protocol to forward datagrams between networks. Gateways also implement the Gateway to Gateway Protocol (GGP) [7] to coordinate routing and other internet control information.

In a gateway the higher level protocols need not be implemented and the GGP functions are added to the IP module.
