Bits are used in networks since we want to represent binary modulation rates and we're usually dealing with serial transmission. (There's also Baud, often used to be used with dial-up modems, which measures signal transition rates; often incorrectly used as being the same as bps.)
Bytes are usually significant to display characters (i.e. ASCII, EBCDIC) and often don't correspond to non-character data usage. For example, non-network people "knowing" that a byte is 8 bits usually don't understand why 10 Mbps Ethernet doesn't deliver 1.25 MBps. (For fun, explain how RS232's usage of 1, 1 and 1/2, or 2 stop bits impacts effective transmission rate, especially when using 1 and 1/2 stop bits.)
BTW: Bytes came from being part of a machine "word" which often stored a single display character and could also often be directly addressed.
This document gives several answers on frequently asked questions for PFRv3 channel state behavior.
Q1: What are all the channel operational states from a BR (border role) perspective and what are the rules/conditions to be in each st...
The need was to reach an host inside a LAN through a VPN connection managed by the LAN gateway (Cisco 1921).
The LAN gateway performs NAT and there was a dedicate nat rule for the host i wanted to reach through VPN.
I couldn't connect to the hos...
We have 3 identical switches configured by someone else and would like to claim some of the Gigabit ports(G1/G2/G3/G4) for use on servers. When we try to change the wiring and configuration, we run in to connectivity issues. Attached is a des...
