As Project Manager for Network integration and software development Mr. McClure designed and developed an agency standard Workstation and LAN configuration and ported user applications to a Client/Server environment. The Workstation consolidated use of several separate terminals and other hardware platforms into one workstation (an 80386/80486/SUN running either DOS or UNIX) and provided connectivity to remote hosts (IBM 3080, Honeywell, SUN 4, DEC VAX) with a GUI (Microsoft Windows/X-Windows). The LAN provided for multiple clusters of fiber-optic Ethernet cable plant connected to an FDDI backbone and utilized multiple transport protocols such as TCP/IP, NFS, NOVELL, and applications protocols such as TELNET, NVDET, TN3270, TNVT220, FTP, and SMTP. He built file, application, and mail servers including Novell, SUN, and other NFS based servers.

As Project Manager for Network management software development Mr. McClure designed and developed a hardware and software system of integrated network test tools to measure performance on both pre-operational and operational networks. The system software was written in C under UNIX on a AT&T 3B2/400 computer. The software performed network throughput, stress, and error testing for mutiplexors, hosts, and both LAN and remote gateways. The tools also performed protocol testing (TCP/IP, ICMP) by allowing a user to modify standard packet leaders and then trace the packets as they moved through the network.

 

As Project Manager for Network management software development Mr. McClure worked on the design team for a Distributed Network Monitoring Center and related subsystems. The network is a world-wide packet-switched network using X.25, 1822J, and a wide variety of network protocols (such as NCP and TCP/IP) and host computers (such as IBM 4381, IBM 370, DEC VAX, AT&T 3B, and Honeywell).
