It's been said, probably for centuries, that necessity is the mother of invention. And personnel at the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) were faced with exactly that situation during the 1970s. They developed a rugged system to link dissimilar computers, including those that were considered or known to be unreliable. The resulting communications network was designed to be robust, since it was intended for battlefield use. However, eventual commercial use of networks has eclipsed its original purpose.

IP, the Internet Protocol was designed to network the networks of multiple vendors. TCP, Transmission Control Protocol, verifies that data is delivered correctly from client to server. If data is lost, it resends it until the data is received correctly and in its entirety. A third layer called Sockets refers to the subroutines that generally provide TCP/IP with access.

The development of TCP/IP protocols made possible delivery of e-mail, files, and remote logon over many client systems and servers. Businesses and universities, as well as the military, have benefited in unforeseen ways as technology continues its advance. TCP/IP is completely standardized for use on the LAN, but no single standard can handle worldwide communications, or even national or state usage; many new options are coming on to the market.

Hands-on Training for TCP/IP

Hands-on Training for TCP/IP is almost a necessity. Classes are taught by certified instructors, including those with backgrounds in Novell. TCP/IP is often an integral part of a certification program for network technicians and administrators. Group discounts are frequently available for onsite training. However, another alternative is again an online, self-paced learning program
