What is tcpip?
Transmission Control Protocol is a protocol for transmitting data between computers. Suppose that you have a 10 megabit optic cable and you need to send data to another computer. The easiest way to explain it is that the computer which receives the data will transmit to the computer with the lowest ‘speed’ and gain as much as possible.
When to use which
Protocols come in two types, terminal and router. The most common protocol is used by many users as telnet and SSH. But protocol can vary depending on the environment.
terminals: this is the type of terminal where we connect to the computer. We can install a terminal multiplexer in our PC to our PC which we use as a virtual terminal, and type and surf the web.
Routers: our router will provide us with a way to connect to the internet wirelessly. We will connect to the router with a modem from our PC, and then it will send and receive data across the cable from our PC to the router. The router will then decrypt the data and send it to the PC.
What protocols are used?
ISO: The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) functions are a group of working groups that meet behind a common set of proposals to develop a common system for managing the publishing, approval, and certification of mechanical regulation. They publish a body of published laws and protocols.
A?: The ATCP (Advanced Encryption Standard) is a data encryption standard that is used to secure information in transmission. It is offered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Cisco: Common networking conveniences Cisco offers a wide range of integrated services that make networking in your office or workplace quick and more accessible. These features allow workers to connect to their satellite or mobile locations, share video and voice, and use secured services such as Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).
