- It is used to interconnect network devices over the internet.
- TCP Stands for Transmission Control Protocol and
- IP Stands for internet protocol
- It is used for listening on some ports for incoming traffic and we will pass the data to some other outgoing port Both the request and response will be monitored by TCP/IP
- To open TCP/IP Monitor in toolkit click on windows–> show view–> other–>debug click on TCP/IP Monitor
- We need to configure TCP/IP Monitor properties like Hostname port and which type of protocol we are using
- All these need to be configured at the toolkit level.
- We will see the Request and Response in toolkit with different uris configured with the node as follows
The functionality of TCP/IP Monitor: –
TCP/IP Functionality is divided into 4 layers
- Application Layer
- Transport Layer
- Network Layer
- Physical Layer
1. Application Layer: –
It Provides Applications with standardized data exchange it consists of different types of protocols like HTTP, FTP, SMTP, and Simple Network Management Protocol at the Application Layer Payload is the actual application data.
2. Transport Layer: –
This Layer is Responsible for maintaining end-to-end communications across the network it will use user datagram protocol for Special purposes.
3. Network Layer: –
It will deal with packets and connects independent networks to transport the packets across boundaries its network layer protocols are IP and Internet Control Message Protocol which is used for error reporting
4. Physical Layer: –
It is also known as the network interface layer or data link layer it will consist of protocols that operate only on a link.
Pros and cons of TCP/IP: –
- It establishes a connection between different types of computers, os, routing protocols
- It is lightweight and doesn’t place unnecessary strain on a network or computer.
- It is complicated to set up and manage
- It is not easy to replace protocols in TCP/IP
