  • Network Protocols
    • A network protocol is nothing more than an agreement that a particular type of data will be formatted in a particular manner.
    • Addressing
      • The address on the internet is called internet protocol (IP) addressing.
      • Example of an IP Address:
    • TCP/IP
      • On the internet, conceptual TCP/IP (transmission control protocol/ internet protocol) is the delivery model.
      • TCP is in charge of the reliable delivery of information, while IP is in charge of routing, using the IP addressing mechanism.
    • Checksum
      • A simple error-detection scheme is used in which each transmitted package is accompanied by a numerical value based on the number of see bits in the message.
      • The receiving station then applies the same formula to the message and checks to make sure the accompanying numerical value is the same.
      • If not, the receiver can assume that the message has been garbled.
    • A protocol is a set of rules that govern the transfer of data between computers.
