A good TCP protocol description ?
« on: April 09, 2007, 04:17:30 PM »
Hi. I'd like to learn the TCP protocol in detail, if it's not too big, is there a document with a good description ? Most seem to be comercial or something...

IIRC it's still based on the OSI 7-layer model:

1. Application
2. Presentation
3. Session
4. Transport
5. Network
6. Data-Link
7. Physical

The OSI will probably document what each of these layers does in more detail. I can remember roughly what each one is for, but not the intricacies of how they do it (Network+ was a long time ago!)

[EDIT]
This Wikipedia document describes the layers in more detail.

@moto
Turn the layer order around, then it makes more sense. ;-)

TCP/IP doesn't really take care of layers 5-7, that's the app's responsibility.

The ISO/OSI stuff is quite bloated and less relevant. This is more what you want.

These two might a bit heavy for a beginner, but frankly they're great source of information:
RFC 793
RFC 1180

I'd suggest reading 1180 first, it's more of a tutorial, and as such easier to digest.

Don't forget RFC 1149.  :-)
Time to move on.  Bye Amiga.org.  :(
