Hiya,

...Does anyone know any good sites I can visit to learn about TCP/IP without it going into every single iota of detail about the OSI model??

Cheers,

Leah.

weeelll..not really...as tcp/ip is pretty well stacked into the osi model...

but...i guess we need to know exactly what you want to know about tcp/ip? because for functional knowledge..honestly you just need to be able to say it....for true exam style knowledge..you need a bit more

tcp and ip are two different protocol sets..they are always listed together because they work together to accomplish a goal...

tcp stands for "transmission control protocol" and it controls the actual connection between two hosts...it sets up a connection between the hosts that guarantees that there will be no packet loss.

IP stands for "internet protocol" and it actually governs the format and addressing of the packets (or datagrams) that the hosts will be sending to each other

so...ip by itself is useless as all it's doing is putting an address on a packet...tcp by itself is useless as all it is is setting up a connection...so basically together tcp/ip is a mailman and a person mailing something....ip puts an address on the packet and tcp pushes it down the pipe
