Open Transport

The subsystem in the Macintosh operating system that implements AppleTalk, TCP/IP and serial communications protocols. Macintosh developers creating network applications interact with the network by writing to the same Open Transport programming interface (API), regardless of the underlying transport mechanism. Open Transport is a superset of X/Open's Transport Interface.
