An interconnection scheme for NOW aims to provide a network of hosts (distributed computer system) in which distributed computing can be performed. The distributed system akin to the Internet, consists of a few or several hosts connected together by a logical interconnection network. Hosts on the network are grouped into domains, and the domains are interconnected together to form the network. Hosts in a domain are directly connected to every other host within that domain. Within a domain, a single host acts as a gateway host handling extra domain messages. To provide the distributed computer system, I implemented an interconnection scheme with two main functions: to provide connectivity among the hosts in the network; and message routing capability between the hosts
