- split DNS
In a split DNS infrastructure, you create two zones for the same domain, one to be used by the internal network, the other used by the external network. Split DNS directs internal hosts to an internal domain name server for name resolution and external hosts are directed to an external domain name server for name […]
- split backplane
A split backplane is often used to handle a large number of signals. Split backplane configurations will divide bus connections between two motherboards (one on either side of the daughterboards). Using two motherboards shortens the path of connections to daughterboards and often improves performance. See backplane for more information.
- split horizon
(split h&-rī´z&n) (n.) A routing technique that eliminates the chance of a routing scheme creating routing loops, effectively making routing more efficient. When a router in a network with only one data path receives a data packet, it does not send routing information back along the path on which the packet traveled (i.e., to an […]
- split screen
Division of the display screen into separate parts, each of which displays a different document, or different parts of the same document.
- split tunneling
(split tun´&l-ing) (n.) The process of allowing a remote VPN user to access a public network, most commonly the Internet, at the same time that the user is allowed to access resources on the VPN. This method of network access enables the user to access remote devices, such as a networked printer, at the same […]
