remarks:         ***************************************************************
remarks:         Akamai serves the images and streaming content for many of the
remarks:         most popular Internet web-sites. When you connect to a web-site
remarks:         your browser first contacts the content provider and downloads
remarks:         an html file. This file contains embedded URLs that tell your
remarks:         browser where to find all the objects necessary to finish
remarks:         displaying the page. In the case of an "Akamaized" site, these
remarks:         URLs point to the Akamai Network. Next, your browser makes
remarks:         connections to the URLs to obtain the images or streaming
remarks:         content. Again, for an "Akamaized" site, your browser will
remarks:         contact an Akamai server to obtain the requested items.
remarks:         Generally a TCP server listens on a well-known port < 1023 (for
remarks:         example port 80 for HTTP), and a TCP client connects from a
remarks:         port > 1023 assigned by the operating system. So a connection
remarks:         from port 80 of the Akamai server to a high numbered port on
remarks:         your machine, is a normal HTTP transaction.

IP address ranges, or netblocks, are groups of related IP addresses. They are usually represented as a base IP address, followed by a slash, and then a netmask which represents how many IP addresses are contained within the netblock. This format is known as CIDR. You'll also sometimes see netblocks given as a start ip address, and an end ip address, or an ip address range.

Traffic works its way around the internet based on the routing table, which contains a list of networks and their associated netblocks.
