    • Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol
    • Allows cross-network communication

Internet Protocols 8. Internet Protocols

  • TCPbreaks messages into packets
    • Each packet has all the information needed to travel from network to network
    • Host systems calledRoutersdetermine how to route transmissions

9. Internet Protocols

  • IPis the address for the packets
    • Each Internet host computer has a uniqueIP Address
    • Each address is comprised of four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as123.23.168.22

10. Internet Addresses

  • The host is named using DNS (domain name system), which translates IP addresses into a string of names.

Each person on the Internet has a unique e-mail address created by having a squirrel run across a computer keyboard. Dave Barry 11. Internet Addresses
