This tutorial explains types of network protocols and their functions in details. Understanding these basic network protocols with functions will help you in managing network effectively.
Learn how the most common types of network protocols works in computer network. The main difference between the two protocols is that TCP uses a connection-oriented transport, while UDP uses a connectionless type of communication. When the TCP protocol is used, a special connection is opened up between two network devices, and the channel remains open to transmit data until it is closed.
On the other hand, a UDP transmission does not make a proper connection and merely broadcasts its data to the specified network address without any verification of receipt. For certain types of applications and services, a TCP connection makes more sense, while other types are more efficiently provided by UDP communication.
The advantage of TCP is that the transmission is much more reliable because it uses acknowledgement packets to ensure delivery. The advantage of UDP is that there is no connection, so it is much faster without all the checks and acknowledgements going on, but is also less reliable.
It would be very difficult for someone to have to memorize the different IP addresses for the hosts they want to connect to on the network. A domain name uses words rather than numbers to identify Internet hosts.
You would enter. You could use A DNS server translates these addresses. When the browser receives the address, it connects to the Web site. NAT translates one IP address to another. This can be a source address or a destination address.
Two basic implementations of NAT can be used: static and dynamic. With static NAT, a manual translation is performed by an address translation device, translating one IP address to a different one. Typically, static NAT is used to translate destination IP addresses in packets as they come into your network, but you can translate source addresses also. With static address translation, you need to build the translations manually. If you have devices, you need to create static entries in the address translation table, which is a lot of work.
Typically, static translation is done for inside resources that outside people want to access. When inside users access outside resources, dynamic translation is typically used.
ICS provides networked computers with the capability to share a single connection to the Internet. This is called name resolution. WINS supports network client and server computers running Windows. WINS uses a distributed database that is automatically updated with the names of computers currently available and the IP address assigned to each one.
DNS is an alternative for name resolution suitable for network computers with fixed IP addresses. SNMP uses small utility programs called agents to monitor behavior and traffic on the network, in order to gather statistical data. These agents can be loaded onto managed devices such as hubs, NIC's, servers, routers, and bridges. The gathered data is stored in a MIB management information base.
To collect the information in a usable form, a management program console polls these agents and downloads the information from their MIB's, which then can be displayed as graphs, charts and sent to a database program to be analyzed.
Network File System NFS is a distributed file system that allows users to access files and directories located on remote computers and treat those files and directories as if they were local. Zero Configuration Networking is a set of techniques that automatically create a usable IP network without configuration or special servers. This allows unknowledgeable users to connect computers, networked printers, and other items together and expect them to work automatically.
Without Zeroconf or something similar, a knowledgeable user must either set up special servers, like DHCP and DNS, or set up each computer's network settings manualy.
Zeroconf currently solves three problems :. A file-sharing protocol designed to allow networked computers to transparently access files that reside on remote systems over a variety of networks.
The SMB protocol defines a series of commands that pass information between computers. SMB uses four message types: session control, file, printer, and message. It is mainly used by Microsoft Windows equipped computers. SMB works through a client-server approach, where a client makes specific requests and the server responds accordingly. One section of the SMB protocol is specifically for filesystem access, such that clients may make requests to a file server.
The SMB protocol was optimised for local subnet usage, but one could use it to access different subnets across the Internet on which MS Windows file-and-print sharing exploits usually focus.
Client computers may have their own hard disks, which are not publicly shared, yet also want access to the shared file systems and printers on the server, and it is for this primary purpose that SMB is best known and most heavily used. The file sharing protocol used in an AppleTalk network. In order for non-Apple networks to access data in an AppleShare server, their protocols must translate into the AFP language.
AFP versions 3. The AFP 2. The LPR component initiates commands such as "print waiting jobs," "receive job," and "send queue state," and the LPD component in the print server responds to them. In networking, these are typically used for backup of primary circuits and for temporary boosts of bandwidth. These circuits are common when a variety of services, such as voice, video, and data, must traverse the connection and you are concerned about delay issues with the traffic and guaranteed bandwidth.
Their advantage over dedicated circuits is that a single device can connect to multiple devices on the same interface. The downside of these services is that they are not available at all locations, they are difficult to set up and troubleshoot, and the equipment is expensive when compared to equipment used for dedicated circuits. Packet-switched services are similar to cell-switched services. Whereas cell-switched services switch fixed-length packets called cells, packet-switched services switch variable-length packets.
This feature makes them better suited for data services, but they can nonetheless provide some of the QoS features that cell-switched services provide.
Packet switching offers more efficient use of a telecommunication provider's network bandwidth. With packet switching, the switching mechanisms on the network route each data packet from switch to switch individually over the network using the best-available path. Any one physical link in a packet-switched network can carry packets from many different senders and for many different destinations.
Where as in a circuit switched connection, the bandwidth is dedicated to one sender and receiver only. Integrated Services Digital Network adapters can be used to send voice, data, audio, or video over standard telephone cabling.
ISDN adapters must be connected directly to a digital telephone network. Like standard modems, ISDN adapters are available both as internal devices that connect directly to a computer's expansion bus and as external devices that connect to one of a computer's serial or parallel ports.
ISDN can provide data throughput rates from 56 Kbps to 1. In other cases, an NT device separate from the adapter or router must be implemented. Fiber Distributed Data Interface, shares many of the same features as token ring, such as a token passing, and the continuous network loop configuration.
But FDDI has better fault tolerance because of its use of a dual, counter-rotating ring that enables the ring to reconfigure itself in case of a link failure. Each device in the ring attaches to the adjacent device using a two stranded fiber optic cable. Data travels in one direction on the outer strand and in the other direction on the inner strand. When all devices attached to the dual ring are functioning properly, data travels on only one ring.
FDDI transmits data on the second ring only in the event of a link failure. T1 lines are widely used for private networks as well as interconnections between an organizations LAN and the telco. A T1 line uses two pairs of wire one to transmit, and one to receive. The standard T1 frame is bits long, which holds 24 8-bit voice samples and one synchronization bit with 8, frames transmitted per second.
T1 is not restricted to digital voice or to 64 Kbps data streams. Channels may be combined and the total 1. A T3 line is a super high-speed connection capable of transmitting data at a rate of 45 Mbps. A T3 line represents a bandwidth equal to about regular voice-grade telephone lines, which is wide enough to transmit real time video, and very large databases over a busy network.
A T3 line is typically installed as a major networking artery for large corporations, universities with high-volume network traffic and for the backbones of the major Internet service providers.
Optical Carrier, designations are used to specify the speed of fiber optic networks that conforms to the SONET standard. It provides error detection and correction, as well as flow control, at both the data link layer by LAPB and the network layer by X.
Because of its overhead, X. If you have a synchronous digital connection, another protocol, such as Frame Relay or ATM, is much more efficient. This protocol relies on an elaborate worldwide network of packet-forwarding nodes that can participate in delivering an X.
Some of these varieties are asymmetric with different data rates in the downstream and upstream directions.
Others are symmetric. A high-bandwidth digital transmission technology that uses existing phone lines and also allows voice transmissions over the same lines. Most of the traffic is transmitted downstream to the user, generally at rates of Kbps to about 6 Mbps. Cable modems use a broadband connection to the Internet through cable television infrastructure.
These modems use frequencies that do not interfere with television transmission. The word modem comes from Modulate and Demodulate. Because standard telephone lines use analog signals, and computers digital signals, a sending modem must modulate its digital signals into analog signals. The computers modem on the receiving end must then demodulate the analog signals into digital signals.
Modems can be external, connected to the computers serial port by an RS cable or internal in one of the computers expansion slots. Modems connect to the phone line using standard telephone RJ connectors. A wireless network consists of wireless NICs and access points. Access points act as wireless hubs to link multiple wireless NICs into a single subnet.
Internet Message Access Protocol
Mail servers and other message transfer agents use SMTP to send and receive mail messages. User-level email clients typically use SMTP only for sending messages to a mail server for relaying, and typically submit outgoing email to the mail server on port or per RFC Various forms of one-to-one electronic messaging were used in the s. Users communicated using systems developed for specific mainframe computers. As more computers were interconnected, especially in the U. SMTP grew out of these standards developed during the s. The SMTP standard was developed around the same time as Usenet , a one to many communication network with some similarities.

Email is emerging as one of the most valuable services on the internet today. Most of the internet systems use SMTP as a method to transfer mail from one user to another. The SMTP server is always on listening mode. After successfully establishing the TCP connection the client process sends the mail instantly. The end to end model is used to communicate between different organizations whereas the store and forward method are used within an organization.

In this guide to the AS2 protocol, we walk you through a complete definition of AS2 and provide everything you need to know to get started with it, including:. AS2 is a universal method for transporting data used by millions of businesses worldwide, including most major retailers, such as Amazon and Walmart. Unlike software for many other file transfer protocols, AS2 software is tested for interoperability by Drummond-Certified AS2 vendors twice per year against a battery of security profiles, ensuring any interoperability issues are found and resolved during testing and not in your production environment.
Along with the Web, electronic mail is one of the most popular Internet applications. Just like ordinary "snail mail," email is asynchronous — people send and read messages when it is convenient for them, without having to coordinate with other peoples' schedules. In contrast with snail mail, electronic mail is fast, easy to distribute, and inexpensive.
This tutorial explains types of network protocols and their functions in details. Understanding these basic network protocols with functions will help you in managing network effectively. Learn how the most common types of network protocols works in computer network.
Basicaly, a protocol is about a standard method used at each end of a communication channel, in order to properly transmit information.

Internet Documents. RFCs - s. This RFC Reference Guide is intended to provide a historical account by categorizing and summarizing of the Request for Comments numbers 1 through issued between the years These documents have been crossed referenced to indicate which RFCs are current, obsolete, or revised. Both local network and internet operation are supported. Various node types are defined to accommodate local and internet topologies and to allow operation with or without the use of IP broadcast. This memo is intended to identify and explore issues in defining a standard for the exchange of mathematical equations.
IMAP was designed with the goal of permitting complete management of an email box by multiple email clients, therefore clients generally leave messages on the server until the user explicitly deletes them. An IMAP server typically listens on port number The Internet Message Access Protocol is an Application Layer Internet protocol that allows an e-mail client to access email on a remote mail server. The current version is defined by RFC Incoming email messages are sent to an email server that stores messages in the recipient's email box. The user retrieves the messages with an email client that uses one of a number of email retrieval protocols.

Халохот пробирался между деревьями с пистолетом в руке. Деревья были очень старыми, с высокими голыми стволами. Даже до нижних веток было не достать, а за неширокими стволами невозможно спрятаться. Халохот быстро убедился, что сад пуст, и поднял глаза вверх, на Гиральду. Вход на спиральную лестницу Гиральды преграждала веревка с висящей на ней маленькой деревянной табличкой. Веревка даже не была как следует натянута. Халохот быстро осмотрел стодвадцатиметровую башню и сразу же решил, что прятаться здесь просто смешно.
Трюк, старый как мир. Никуда я не звонил. ГЛАВА 83 Беккеровская веспа, без сомнения, была самым миниатюрным транспортным средством, когда-либо передвигавшимся по шоссе, ведущему в севильский аэропорт. Наибольшая скорость, которую она развивала, достигала 50 миль в час, причем делала это со страшным воем, напоминая скорее циркулярную пилу, а не мотоцикл, и, увы, ей не хватало слишком много лошадиных сил, чтобы взмыть в воздух.
- Mucha joyeria. Вся в украшениях. В одном ухе странная серьга, кажется, в виде черепа.
Фонтейн набрал код на специальной углубленной панели, после чего прикоснулся к небольшой стеклянной пластинке. Сигнальная лампочка вспыхнула, и массивная стена с грохотом отъехала влево. В АНБ было только одно помещение, еще более засекреченное, чем шифровалка, и Сьюзан поняла, что сейчас она окажется в святая святых агентства. ГЛАВА 109 Командный центр главного банка данных АНБ более всего напоминал Центр управления полетами НАСА в миниатюре. Десяток компьютерных терминалов располагались напротив видеоэкрана, занимавшего всю дальнюю стену площадью девять на двенадцать метров.
Фонтейна это позабавило. - Вы знаете, кто. - Какая разница? - огрызнулся светловолосый.
