Abstract
The backbone of the internetworking technology widely used by the military, as well as many civilian installations, is commonly referred to as TCP/IP. Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP) are the two standard communication protocols from which TCP/IP receives its name. By utilizing TCP/IP, the majority of technical issues of interconnecting various computer technologies have become transparent to the user. This thesis conducts an in depth study of many aspects of the TCP/IP technology. Based upon descriptions provided, flowcharts detailing the series of procedures of numerous functions of both TCP and IP are created. Additionally, inefficient TCP/IP functions are discussed and possible solutions to the inefficiencies are provided.
