In recent era of Information Technology the data traffic over the
Internet is increasing uncontrollably. This proliferation of data
traffic is due to general shift towards e-business and other
application of Information Technology. The businesses relying on
Internet lose billions of dollars each year due to slow or failed
web services. Therefore, in Internet research, the most
conspicuous issue is to develop methodologies to reduce net
traffic over the Internet. In this paper, an algorithm is proposed
to reduce net data traffic, which works at Internet layer in TCP/IP
reference model. The algorithm monitors data repetitions in IP
datagram and prepares a compression code in response of this
repetition. If no IP datagrams are repeated, no compression code
is sent. Therefore, the algorithm does not put any overhead on
the system. Furthermore, as the proposed algorithm works at IP
datagrams only, therefore, it remains transparent from all

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
