Osi and tcp/ip models | Computer Science homework help


Discussion Topic

Choose a TCP/IP service, such as a web  browser, email, file transfer, remote shell, DHCP, DNS, network time  protocol, network address translation, etc. 


  • Everyone should pick a different service, if possible, to keep the discussion fresh.
