Before we get into the specific individual protocols,…I want to talk to you about something called…the transfer layer protocols, there's two of them.…All communication takes place via either…what's called TCP or UDP.…These are the two transport layer protocols,…and let me explain what the difference is.…First, let's look at TCP,…which stands for the Transmission Control Protocol.…This is what's known as a connection oriented protocol,…and the reason why is because…before communication takes place using TCP,…
