Hi, all,

I'm in the process of completing an RFC on tunneling in the Internet,
and need to be able to cite an RFC-based term that refers to "host or

I originally considered "network node" to be obvious, but that term
appears in early (two-digit) RFCs to refer only to relays (precursors to
gateways), as distinct from hosts.

Does anyone know if there is a term that refers to both hosts (sources
and sinks of datagrams) and gateways (relays of datagrams) as s a set?
