I know that Autonomous System (AS) is an administrative 'domain' that has its own routing policy.   I was wondering if this 'domain' has any relation to a 'domain' name, such as .com or .org.   I'd just like to clear my confusion.   Any explanation would be appreciated.

what your talking about is a private domain, a server of some sort that authenticates and delegates privleges to any one who trys to logon to that domain, it doesn't have anything to do with a .com or .org or any thing like that.

I thought AS was more of a network prefix rather than a single machine (like a server).   Do you mean that there a single machine on an AS that does the authentication stuff to any other machine outside the domain and tries to logon to that server's domain?

Also, thanks for your response.

yeah to a point, if you have a private network, with a DC (domain controler) and other machines in that private network try to log on to that domain, then your DC will authenticate and delegate privileges, but if you have a DC on a private network and i try and authenticate from my machine, that won't be posable(unless there was a VPN between the two networks)
