This project report describes the main contribution and results of work done on a visionbased identification problem as a part of CIM system. The system is configured in a local area network that implements compact and reliable peer-to-peer communication protocol based on NetBIOS that is simulated upon Netware's IPX protocol. This is made possible at a minimum cost by successfully identifying and extracting only essential files from the commercially available Novell Netware basic package. These are data link and network layer protocol routines that are sufficient for the user application programs to be developed upon. The implementation has led to a more compact, time-efficient communication protocol suitable for control applications without some constraints like the number of users that were imposed on the original licenced software.
