Protocols

Today in Int 2 IS we learned about the different protcols in TCP/IP (transfer control protocol and internet protocol)

The 4 main internet service protocols that we learned about are:

HTTP –  is the service protocol that allows users to receive information from the World Wide Web

FTP – allows users to send (or receive) copies of files from or to different computer systems or networks.

SMTP –  is generally the protocol used to send outgoing email messages

POP3 –  is generally the protocol used to receive incoming email messages

Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is concerned with taking a data message, breaking it into smaller chunks called packets and then re-assembling it again at the other end.
