Apple Computer designed the AppleTalk network system in the early 1980s to connect Macintosh computers with printers and file servers. Initially, Apple's customers deployed AppleTalk in small workgroups, but the developers of AppleTalk considered versatility one of their main goals, and they made it possible for enterprises to evolve their AppleTalk LANs into large, diverse internetworks. While most of these internetworks are migrating to IP today, AppleTalk remains in use, particularly in scientific communities, universities, and environments where multimedia content is created.

Because AppleTalk remains in use, it also remains on the CCIE tests. This Tutorial will attempt to teach you enough about AppleTalk that you can handle the AppleTalk sections of the CCIE written and lab tests. The paper does not simply regurgitate Cisco documentation, however. It is written from the perspective of someone who has lived with AppleTalk since its inception and closely watched its evolution.

One of the goals of this paper is to dispel the many myths that prevail regarding AppleTalk. Another goal is to focus on what is really important to know about AppleTalk. In this sense the paper differs from Cisco's documentation. For example, Cisco's documentation is overloaded with references to AppleTalk Phase 1. AppleTalk Phase 1 is obsolete, and it is highly unlikely you will encounter it in the real (Phase 2) world. To be a successful internetworking engineer, you should focus on Phase 2, for that is what you will see.

Why Learn AppleTalk?

One obvious reason to learn AppleTalk is that it is still covered on the CCIE tests. AppleTalk is still on the written and lab tests because many of Cisco's customers still have AppleTalk networks. As a Cisco engineer, you may be expected to troubleshoot AppleTalk problems, and will possibly be asked to help enterprises migrate from AppleTalk to IP. An understanding of how AppleTalk behaves is an important component of your CCIE toolbox.

The fact that AppleTalk is still on the tests is not the only reason to learn AppleTalk, though. Another important reason is that the AppleTalk philosophy, which decrees that protocols and user configurations should be simple, is spreading to the IP world. Consider all the protocols that start with the name "Light-Weight" or "Simple." Also consider the move to dynamic network-layer address assignment, which Apple pioneered in the early 1980s. Experience with dynamic addressing in AppleTalk can give you perspective on autoconfiguration mechanisms in the evolving IPv6. Although IPv6 stateless autoconfiguration is more like OSI autoconfiguration than AppleTalk dynamic addressing, there are some conceptual similarities between IPv6 and AppleTalk dynamic addressing.

In addition, with IETF protocols such as the Service Location Protocol (SLP), the IP world is adopting the AppleTalk principle that network resource discovery should be simple. Finding resources and services, such as servers and printers, is an important network function that traditionally AppleTalk handled better than IP, at least from the end user's point of view.

AppleTalk Architecture

This section describes the architecture of an AppleTalk internetwork and the structure of the AppleTalk protocol suite. There is no rocket science here. If you know other protocols, such as IP, then learning AppleTalk simply requires applying that knowledge and learning a few new terms (or new meanings for old terms).

AppleTalk Internetwork Architecture

An AppleTalk internetwork consists of the following components:

* Node: An AppleTalk node is a device that is connected to an AppleTalk network and runs the AppleTalk protocols. This device might be a Macintosh, a PC, a router, a gateway, or some other device.

* Socket: An AppleTalk socket is a unique, addressable location in an AppleTalk node. It is the logical point at which upper-layer software processes interact with AppleTalk's network-layer Datagram Delivery Protocol (DDP).

* Network: An AppleTalk network is a collection of nodes connected via cables (or wireless technologies), hubs, switches or bridges. An AppleTalk network is bounded by a router, much like an IP subnet. A non-extended network is identified by a single network number. An extended network, which is supported in AppleTalk Phase 2, is identified with a cable range, as discussed in the "AppleTalk Addressing" section of this Tutorial.

* Zone: A zone is a logical grouping of nodes. Nodes need not share a physical medium to belong to the same AppleTalk zone. A zone can span more than one network. In addition, a network administrator can associate multiple zone names with a single network.

* Internetwork: An internetwork is a set of networks and zones connected via routers.

Figure 1 shows an AppleTalk internetwork. In this example, each floor of the building internetwork is an AppleTalk Phase 2 extended network, identified by a cable range. The backbone and the serial link are each assigned a cable range also, although in these cases, a unary cable range is acceptable because there are no end nodes on these networks. Note that the Engineering and Sales zones span more than one network. This allows the network administrator to use Floor 1 as a computer room where departmental servers are connected. Cable ranges and zones are discussed in more detail later in this Tutorial.

Figure 1

AppleTalk Protocol Architecture

As is the case with most protocol suites, AppleTalk protocols communicate in layers. Each protocol draws upon the services of one or more protocols below it in the layered stack of protocols, and each protocol delivers a service to protocols or applications above it. This layering allowed the AppleTalk developers to use a divide-and-conquer approach to designing and building the protocol architecture.

Figure 2 shows the AppleTalk layered architecture. The lines between the boxes show the interaction between protocols, including which protocols provide services to others, and which protocols make use of the services of other protocols.

Figure 2

Figure 2 can also be used to understand the encapsulation of data within protocol headers. For example, an AppleTalk Filing Protocol (AFP) command to create a file on a server is encapsulated in an AppleTalk Session Protocol (ASP) header, which is encapsulated in an AppleTalk Transaction Protocol (ATP) header, which is encapsulated in a Datagram Delivery Protocol (DDP) header. DDP makes use of one of the Link Access Protocols (LAPs) to further encapsulate the packet in the appropriate data-link-layer header, for example, an 802.3 or 802.5 header.

Figure 2 also shows that AFP uses the Name Binding Protocol (NBP). Although AFP packets are not encapsulated in NBP, an AFP server uses NBP to register its name and socket number in its local names table, which makes the server visible to internetwork clients. The Printer Access Protocol (PAP) also uses NBP to register and find print servers. Commands and data sent through a PAP connection have been formatted using the PostScript specification.

Looking at Figure 2, you might wonder why the Zone Information Protocol (ZIP) is shown to use both DDP and ATP. ZIP packets can reside inside an ATP header or be carried directly by DDP. The decision to use ATP versus DDP depends on how much reliability is required and whether a large amount of data is being sent. When a Macintosh downloads a complete list of zones, for example, ZIP uses ATP.
