TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
The Internet Protocol suite is a set of internetworking protocols that is more commonly referred to as "TCP/IP." However, TCP/IP refers to only two of the protocols in the Internet Protocol suite: TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) and IP (Internet Protocol). Many other protocols are part of TCP/IP, including UDP (User Datagram Protocol), RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol), and application-level protocols such as FTP and HTTP.
