RE: Re: Discovery Project: Which Mission Next?

If there was sufficient processing on board, the ideal situation would be 
to have the satellite operating as a gateway using DHCP. This would allow 
users to be assigned an IP address that is good for the duration of the 
session or pass. Once the pass is over or the user has logged off (or timed 
out), the address would be available for a new user. This is how most 
dial-up internet accounts work. As for the one-to-many issue, perhaps IP 
multicast could be used. This should work for transmitting data such as 
video or bulletins, but I'm not sure how it would work for a round table 
type discussion.
