TCP/IP Protocols

TCP/IP is a large collection of different communication protocols.

A Family of Protocols

TCP/IP is a large collection of different communication protocols based upon the two original protocols TCP and IP.

TCP - Transmission Control Protocol

TCP is used for transmission of data from an application to the network.
TCP is responsible for breaking data down into IP packets before they are sent, and for assembling the packets when they arrive.

IP - Internet Protocol

IP takes care of the communication with other computers.
IP is responsible for the sending and receiving data packets over the Internet.

HTTP - Hyper Text Transfer Protocol

HTTP takes care of the communication between a web server and a web browser.
HTTP is used for sending requests from a web client (a browser) to a web server, returning web content (web pages) from the server back to the client.


HTTPS - Secure HTTP

HTTPS takes care of secure communication between a web server and a web browser.
HTTPS typically handles credit card transactions and other sensitive data.


SSL - Secure Sockets Layer

The SSL protocol is used for encryption of data for secure data transmission.


SMTP - Simple Mail Transfer Protocol

SMTP is used for transmission of e-mails.


MIME - Multi-purpose Internet Mail Extensions

The MIME protocol lets SMTP transmit multimedia files including voice, audio, and binary data across TCP/IP networks.


IMAP - Internet Message Access Protocol

IMAP is used for storing and retrieving e-mails.


POP - Post Office Protocol

POP is used for downloading e-mails from an e-mail server to a personal computer.


FTP - File Transfer Protocol

FTP takes care of transmission of files between computers.


NTP - Network Time Protocol

NTP is used to synchronize the time (the clock) between computers.


DHCP - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

DHCP is used for allocation of dynamic IP addresses to computers in a network.


SNMP - Simple Network Management Protocol

SNMP is used for administration of computer networks.


LDAP - Lightweight Directory Access Protocol

LDAP is used for collecting information about users and e-mail addresses from the internet.


ICMP - Internet Control Message Protocol

ICMP takes care of error-handling in the network.


ARP - Address Resolution Protocol

ARP is used by IP to find the hardware address of a computer network card based on the IP address.


RARP - Reverse Address Resolution Protocol

RARP is used by IP to find the IP address based on the hardware address of a computer network card.


BOOTP - Boot Protocol

BOOTP is used for booting (starting) computers from the network.


PPTP - Point to Point Tunneling Protocol

PPTP is used for setting up a connection (tunnel) between private networks.

Right click My Computer Select Properties Click Advanced tab Under Performance, click Settings button To turn them all off, select Adjust for best performance Preference is to leave them all off except for Show shadows under mouse pointer and Show window contents while dragging 2. To speed up the display of the Start Menu Items, turn off the menu shadow.

The difference between DNS and NDS

  Novell Directory Services(NDS) - Novell Directory Services (NDS) is a popular software product for managing access to computer resources and keeping track of the users of a  network , such as a company's  intranet , from a single point of administration. Using NDS, a network administrator can set up and control a  database  of users and manage them using a  directory  with an easy-to-use graphical user interface ( GUI ). Users of computers at remote locations can be added, updated, and managed centrally. Applications can be distributed electronically and maintained centrally. NDS can be installed to run under  Windows NT , Sun Microsystem's Solaris, and IBM's  OS/390  as well as under Novell's own  NetWare  so that it can be used to control a multi-platform network. NDS is generally considered an industry  benchmark  against which other products, such as Microsoft's Active Directory, must compete. Lucent Technologies plans to integrate NDS into its own QIP product
