Need some help to clarify networking concept


It is really quite complicated but I'll try to give you a little introduction about TCP/IP.


TCP/IP is a communication protocol used for internet. It is a standard or rule implemented between computers connected to the internet. It defines how computers or any other electronic device should be connected to the internet and how data should be delivered, transmitted or transferred.

Inside TCP/IP standard are several protocols used for handling data communication.

  • TCP (Transmission Control Protocol)
  • UDP (User Datagram Protocol)
  • IP (Internet Protocol)
  • ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol)
  • DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)

TCP is like a bridge or connecting line between two application. It sends a communication request to another application via TCP and must be sent to an exact address. After the request is accepted by the other application, it will then have a full communication between the two.
