VINES: Virtual Integrated Network Service
Virtual Integrated Network Service (VINES) is a protocol stack defined by Banyan Company, derived from the Xerox Network Systems (XNS) protocols. VINES is based on the UNIX operating system and uses a client/server architecture. The Banyan suite includes the following protocols: VARP (VINES Address Resolution Protocol); VIP (VINES Internet Protocol); ICP (Internet Control Protocol); RTP (Routing Update Protocol); IPC (InterProcess Communications Protocol); SPP (Sequenced Packet Protocol); NetRPC (NetRemote Procedure Call); StreetTalk.
In October 1999 Banyan became ePresence, an internet service provider. At the same time, it announced the obsolescence of VINES and other Banyan products.
