This section is intended to provide information to help you gain a basic understanding of TCP/IP.
Similar to a common language that people use to communicate with each other, TCP/IP
(Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is a suite of protocols designed to define the way
computers and other devices communicate with each other over a network.
TCP/IP is rapidly becoming the most used set of protocols. The main reason this is happening is the
fact that the Internet is based on TCP/IP. If you have a network that you wish to connect to the
Internet, you must be using TCP/IP to communicate.
