A student project to accompany a course on computer interfacing and local area networks is described. The audience at which the course is aimed consists of beginning graduate students and seniors. The course addresses fundamental concepts in computer networks in general, and local networks in particular. Students are given the specification of a simple sliding window protocol that provides sequence control and error recovery over an unreliable data link. The task is to implement this protocol on the Apple Macintosh computer as a Layer-3 protocol using the services of the link access protocol (Layer 2) already existent on the machine as part of the Appletalk network. Typical implementations and the cost of benefits of utilizing inexpensive microcomputers for projects in the field of computer networks are discussed
