Why we using Tcp/IP. Why we can't use just Tcp ip? What is the meaning of '/' symbol..

Answer / pankaj lohar

TCP/IP is not a reference model. Remember OSI is a
reference model.OSI is used as a guideline for making
intervendor compatible devices and interoperatable
softwares.
TCP/IP is a model to define how data flows over
internet.Supported by any operating system using any
protocol.I think its a basic networking model.
TCP IP indicates only two protocol Transmission control
protocol and internet protocol.
TCP/IP indicates family of protocol
(http,https,ftp,tcp,udp,ip,arp etc)
"/" represents the all protocol used in this network model.

Why we using Tcp/IP. Why we can't use just Tcp ip? What is the meaning of '/' symbol..

Answer / akshay sharma

The meaning of symbol "/" is AND that means Tcp and IP. TCP
provides the service of exchanging data reliably directly
between two network hosts, whereas IP handles addressing and
routing message across one or more networks.
Internet Protocol is not reliable so that's why we use TCP
for reliability. Remember OSI is just a reference model
TCP/IP is a real time model.

Answer / amandeep lamba

The IP suite contains two standard transport level
protocols: the "transport control protocol" (TCP) and the
"user datagram protocol" (UDP). TCP is the protocol
popularly associated with the IP suite, hence the common
reference to "TCP/IP." The slash mark in "TCP/IP" indicates
that TCP is layered on top of IP. Theoretically, TCP could
be layered on top of any datagram protocol, even ones that
are part of other protocol suites.

Answer / s.m.feroz ahmed

Hi,

We are Using TCP/IP and not TCP ip where the slash
differentiates TCP from IP TCP stands for Transport Control
Protocol and IP stands for Internet Protocol.
TCP is a protocol for communication between internal
Network or for configuring a domain controller and IP is
used to communicate to Internet browsing and to browse and
communicate with outside network.
