Transmission Control Protocol




<networking, protocol> (TCP) The most common transport layer protocol used on Ethernet and the Internet.

It was developed by DARPA.

TCP is the connection-oriented protocol built on top of Internet Protocol (IP) and is nearly always seen in the combination TCP/IP (TCP over IP).

It adds reliable communication and flow-control and provides full-duplex, process-to-process connections.

TCP is defined in STD 7 and RFC 793.

User Datagram Protocol is the other, connectionless, protocol that runs on top of IP.
