Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0008804A1] A private network is built by first allowing a pre-determined number of client systems (C) to connect directly to a server system (A). After this occurs, additional client systems (C) requesting connection are furnished with the addresses of client systems (C) already connected within the private network. Each of the additional client systems (C) then makes connections with a multiple number of client systems (C) to receive information from the server system. Each of these client systems (C) subsequently accepts connections from up to a second pre-determined number of client systems (C) to which it transmits information received from the server system (A).
