The exchange of predetermined signals between two processes engaged in establishing a connection.
An interlocked sequence of signals between connected components in which each component waits for the acknowledgement of its previous signal before proceeding with its action, such as data transfer.
You want some data? I'll transmit it to your machine. If it's coming in too fast, you tell me to wait so you can catch up. The protocol for doing this is called a handshake, and it usually takes place over a pair of wires on the serial port's RS-232 interface. The computer uses one of the wires to stop or start the transfer of data from the modem, and the modem uses the other wire to start or stop transfer from the computer. The wires used are called CTS and RTS.
Sequence of messages exchanged between two or more network devices to ensure transmission synchronization.
When two modems make a connection, they agree on how to transfer data through a handshake -- a series of configuration signals.
An exchange of signals between two connected devices to ensure that the connection is maintained.
The initial exchange of information between two modems upon contact. During the handshake, the two sides agree upon a protocol and other rules (such as how fast they are going to transfer information) to govern the transfer of information back and forth between them. Without a handshake, the connection will not be successfully created.
The exchange of predetermined signals for control of parameters such as modem speed, resolution, etc. when a connection is established between two fax machines.
The initial modem-to-modem interchange that establishes the transmission mode and speed
Routine pulse exchanged between the central processing units of commuters to assure synchronization or that entry to the host computer is authorized.
A preliminary exchange of predetermined signals performed by modems and/or terminals and computers to verify that a communications link has been established and data transmission can proceed.
an exchange of data over the management subchannel that verifies that the transmission is reliable on both ends of the call
The squawking sounds (carrier signals) that modems make when they are communicating with each other to determine a protocol for exchanging information.
Prior to a videoconferencing transmission, the codecs exchange predetermined electrical signals that allow them to interoperate by they seeking out a common algorithm.()
A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) session always begins with an exchange of messages called the SSL handshake. The handshake allows the server to authenticate itself to the client by using public key techniques, and then allows the client and the server to cooperate in the creation of symmetric keys used for rapid encryption, decryption, and tamper detection during the session that follows. Optionally, the handshake also allows the client to authenticate itself to the server.
An exchange of electronic signals preceding a communication between two facsimile machines to determine the proper connection for transmission.
The communication between two modems that indicates a connection is being made.
communications: The exchange of information between to devices (usually modems or printers) to determine whether conditions are right for further communication. A printer may send a handshake to tell the computer to pause while it digests the information is has just received.
The electrical exchange of predetermined signals by devices wishing to set up a connection. Once completed the transmission begins. Used by modems, for example, when connecting to each other.
The exchange of predetermined control signals when a connection is established between modems or other communicating devices.
the first two-way signal exchange between two computers that determines whether or not they are connected, compatible and ready to communicate.
What two modems trying to connect first do to agree on how to transfer data.
The exchange of signals between two networked computer, indicating that data transmission can safely take place. It can also take place between two modems before they start talking.
An interface procedure that is based on status/data signals that assure orderly data transfer as opposed to asynchronous exchange.
The communication between one modem another modem when they first connect.
Signals between a wireless phone and a wireless system to accomplish call setup.
The exchange of information between two modems as they negotiate which communication protocol to use. The funny sounds you hear when your computer initiates a dial-up connection are the modems handshaking.
1) Two modems trying to connect do this to agree on how to transfer data. All those raspberry-sounding noises you hear when you dial up using a modem are the handshake. Modem1 sends a message to Modem2, and they figure out which maximum baud rate they can mutually handle and some other stuff about how they connect to each other, then they complete the connection. 2) InB2B exchanges, a "handshake" may refers to the signal sent by a receiving computer that lets the sending computer know that a transmission was successfully received and may further refer to a functional acknowledgment-type message (various B2B standards use this type of message) that indicates whether or not the transmission passed a syntactical check and compliance checking.
A method used by telecommunications and computer equipment to "introduce" two systems to each other. With fax, two fax devices use a handshaking protocol to identify the Group of each unit, speed, functions to be performed, and other transmission related information.
The exchange of predetermined signals for control when a connection is established between two modems or other devices.
Signals between computers that allow them to establish and maintain a communication session.
Parameter exchange preceding the actual data transmission.
The exchange of control information during the setup of the session.
A protocol two computers use to initiate a communication session.
