The common name for the suite of protocols developed by the US Department of Defense in the 1970's to support the construction of world-wide internetworks. TCP and IP are the two best-knows protocols and provides for the reliable transmission of data.
This de facto UNIX standard is the Internet communications protocol and has become the global standard for communications. TCP provides transport functions, which ensures that the total amount of bytes sent is received correctly at the other end. UDP (User Datagram Protocol), which is part of the TCP/IP suite, is an alternate transport that does not guarantee delivery. It is widely used for realtime voice and video transmissions where erroneous packets are not retransmitted. TCP/IP is a routable protocol, and the IP part of TCP/IP provides this capability. In a routable protocol, all messages contain not only the address of the destination station, but the address of a destination network. This allows TCP/IP messages to be sent to multiple networks (subnets) within an organisation or around the world, hence its use in the Internet. IP accepts packets from TCP or UDP, adds its own header and delivers a ‘datagram' to the data link layer protocol. It may also break the packet into fragments to support the maximum transmission unit (MTU) of the network.
protocol developed by the US Department of Defense as a means of transferring data between computers. It is used widely throughout the Internet and still used by the US DoD.
A suite of communications protocols that defines the basic workings of the Internet. In fact TCP/IP is THE protocol of the Internet because it's the language by which all Internet computers talk to each other.
A standard for the transmission of electronic data from one computer to another. TCP/IP is currently the de facto transmission protocol for the Internet.
A set of protocols that defines the Internet.
A method which allows you to connect to the Internet.
The basic communication protocol of the Internet.
These two protocols were developed by the U.S. military to allow computers to talk to each other over long distance networks. IP is responsible for moving packets of data between nodes. TCP is responsible for verifying delivery from client to server. TCP/IP forms the basis of the Internet, and is built into every common modern operating system (including all flavors of Unix, the Mac OS, and the latest versions of Windows).
A standard protocol used to send and receive data between computers across the Internet.
a set of rules that establish the method with which data is transmitted over the Internet between two computers.
This set of protocols makes TELNET, FTP, e-mail, and other services possible among computers that don't belong to the same network.
