The purpose of this study is to design a symmetric inter and intra group communication protocol among many workstations with reliability. Our protocol supports multipoint-to-multipoint communication with efficiency and reliability. We assume the network size to be a campus-LAN, communicating tens to hundreds of nodes on that network. We design this protocol symmetrically. This means that no master server is assigned on the network. A group management mechanism for the multipoint-to-multipoint communication protocol is also proposed. A user joining the system can change the topology of the multipoint-to-multipoint communication network flexibly
