The set of protocols used for the basic operation of the Internet are Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and the Internet Protocol (IP).These protocols establish fundamental rules about how data are moved across networks and how network connections are established and broken. TCP/IP is a two layered program. It includes rules that computers on a network use to establish and break connections. TCP controls the assembly of a message into smaller packets before it is transmitted and controls the reassembly of packets once they reach their destination. The IP protocol includes rules for routing individual data packets from their source to their destination. IP handles all the addressing details for each packet, ensuring that each is labeled with the correct destination address.
