Native Networking (Qnet)

In the Interprocess Communication (IPC) chapter earlier in this manual, we described message passing in the context of a single node. But the true power of the QNX Neutrino RTOS lies in its ability to take the message-passing paradigm and extend it transparently over a network of microkernels. This chapter describes QNX Neutrino native networking (via the Qnet protocol).
