    Doing a reverse search of the background image you get: flock of birds

    P1 shows an image of an IP datagram
    TCP/IP is the network protocol used by the Internet
    P2 shows the OSI protocol stack
    The background image shows a network in France
    Judging by the network speeds, it is a quite old network

    Thank you for this.
    Is there anything to the song or background for the valid sequence? Not sure if spoiler needed.

    Moderator note! Please do not direct link anything from the mission here. I added the Dataset 2 index link on the topic and now since new system is place, this will prevent users getting stuck on on the redirect page like in Dataset 1 :)

    I'd like some clarification please, I posted that exact index link in IRC last night (before this thread was updated) for an agent just joining and was told not to by a moderator. Can I ask why? What are the official rules here, is it one rule for updating the forum and another for updating IRC? I was under the impression that during a live mission we were allowed to share information freely everywhere?

    You can post index link. but not the pop-up due an broken redirect. System works that you open the index and click trough there. If you link directly to the mission it will open yes, but system will not count that as complete since either coming directly or having no reffering back link which is needed to complete the mission.
