Firewall: Gateway Servers

Firewall: Gateway Servers

This brief interactive activity, by Electromechanical Digital Library and Wisconsin Technical College System faculty members Joseph Wetzel and Brian Gremore, provides a lesson on gateway servers to further illustrate how data travels on the Internet. The illustrations and animations help differentiate gateways, hosts, and servers. The user is able to navigate at his or her own and should prove to be a helpful additional resource to understanding the Internet and how it works.
