I remember trying to explain this topic in an introductory E-Commerce class, and
it was hopelessly complex. This pictorial tutorial uses the analogy of streets
and highways which makes the topic accessible to almost any level of student.

Technical Remarks:

The flash plug-in and instructions are available on the first page, so that you
can use it even if you don't have flash. Clicking on the next button is about
as tough as this one gets!
