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.
