|RFC document #||Abbreviation||Name
|[RFC768]||UDP||User Datagram Protocol
||UDP is a protocol that provides simple,
low-level tools for the transmission and reception of network packets directly to applications.
UDP does not control the data transfer and is used mainly for watching or listening to multimedia files on-line.
|[RFC791]||IP||Internet Protocol||IP is a routable network-level protocol used for unreliable
communications of data from one network node to another. The network makes no guarantees about the packet and none,
some, or all of the following may apply: data corruption; out of order communications; and/or lost, dropped or
|[RFC792]||ICMP||Internet Control Message Protocol||ICMP allows Internet nodes to report on errors
or submit information on unusual operating conditions.
|[RFC793]||TCP||Transmission Control Protocol||TCP is the main traffic protocol that ensures
reliable delivery of information.
|[RFC823]||GGP||Gateway to Gateway Protocol||GGP is a protocol two gateways use to interact
with each another, specifically in executing control tasks.
|[RFC826]||ARP||Address Resolution Protocol||ARP is the method for finding a host's hardware
address when only its network layer address is known. It is primarily used to translate IP addresses to MAC addresses.
|[RFC854]||TELNET||Telecommunications Network Protocol||TELNET is a network-level protocol
to remotely access a computer by means of a command line interpreter.
|[RFC894]||Ethernet|| ||Ethernet is a technology for organizing a LAN, where all hosts can receive
|[RFC959]||FTP||File Transfer Protocol||FTP is an Internet service for transferring files from one
computer to another. It enables connecting to FTP servers, viewing file directories on those servers, uploading files
to the server or downloading files from the server, transferring files between servers, etc.
[RFC1035]||DNS||Domain Name System||DNS is a system that translates human-recognizable
domain names and computer hostnames into computer-usable IP addresses (and vice versa) over TCP/IP.
|[RFC1112]||IGMP||Internet Group Management Protocol||IGMP is a communications protocol
used to manage a membership of IP multicast groups. It is used by IP hosts and adjacent multicast routers to
establish multicast group memberships.
|[RFC1350]||TFTP||Trivial File Transfer Protocol||TFTP is mainly used for the start up of
computers that do not have any data storage devices. Unlike FTP, it does not include possibilities for
authentication (although IP address filtering is possible) and is based on UDP.
|[RFC1738]||URL||Uniform Resource Locator||URL is used to specify the addresses of almost all
[RFC1907]||SNMP||Simple Network Management Protocol||SNMP provides management and control
of network devices and applications. Each network agent (device or app) reports through SNMP its status and what factors
can be controlled from an administrator?s workstation.
|[RFC1939]||POP3||Post Office Protocol||POP3 is an application layer Internet protocol for retrieving
e-mail from a remote server over a TCP/IP connection and is usually used along with SMTP.
|[RFC2131]||DHCP||Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol||DHCP is a network level protocol that enables
computer devices to automatically obtain IP addresses and other parameters necessary for working with TCP/IP connections.
|[RFC2616]||HTTP||HyperText Transfer Protocol||HTTP is an application layer Internet protocol for
transmitting mainly web pages (text documents in HTML format) and any images and files connected with those web pages.
|[RFC2637]||PPTP||Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol||PPTP is a technology that provides very secure
Internet communications, which cannot be line tapped.
[RFC2822]||SMTP||Simple Mail Transfer Protocol||SMTP is a network level protocol for transmitting
e-mail messages over a TCP/IP connection.
|[RFC3501]||IMAP||Internet Message Access Protocol||IMAP is an application layer Internet protocol that
enables a local client to access e-mail on a remote server. It is used to both send and retrieve e-mail messages.
| ||SSL||Secure Sockets Layer||SSL is a cryptographic protocol, which provides secure communications
over the Internet between a client and server.
