Abstract

In this work, we have addressed the problem with classical reverse path forwarding in case of a faulty link and have proposed a fault-tolerant reverse path algorithm to handle with faulty links when broadcasting in wide area networks. The main feature of the proposed algorithm is that it is able to broadcast the packet to destination in case of any faulty links between any two nodes. Besides, the proposed algorithm has the graceful degradation with respect to the number of packets generated.
