Abstract:

The backbone of the internetworking technology widely used by the military, as well as many civilian installations, is commonly referred to as TCPIP. Transmission Control Protocol TCP and Internet Protocol IP are the two standard communication protocols from which TCPIP receives its name. By utilizing TCPIP, the majority of technical issues of interconnecting various computer technologies have become transparent to the user. This thesis conducts an in depth study of many aspects of the TCPIP technology. Based upon descriptions provided, flowcharts detailing the series of procedures of numerous functions of both TCP and IP are created. Additionally, inefficient TCPIP functions are discussed and possible solutions to the inefficiencies are provided.
