Abstract—This paper proposes an application to support web access over Delay Tolerant Networks (DTN). The application enables web browsing in the absence of end-to-end IP connectivity and under challenged network environments where there are long delays or intermittent network connectivity. The latter cannot be managed by conventional Internet transport protocol such as TCP. DTN is resilient to delay and can avail itself to the opportunistic connectivity due to its store and forward capability. The absence of IP connectivity is thus transparent to the web user.
Index Terms—Web browsing, delay tolerant networks.
