A method of fooling network end stations into believing that keep-alive signals have come from and return to the host Polls are received and returned locally at either end of the network and are transmitted only over the open network if there is a condition change The result is a non-time critical network with a minimum of keep-alive traffic between deterministic end stations, while retaining the opportunity to send flags should an end station alter its state The synchronous approach harks back to unreliable circuits and the need to check end station existence at regular intervals Now networks are more reliable, spoofing by routers is an acceptable compromise
