IP, or the Internet Protocol, is one of the most important network protocols. It controls what happens on a local network as well as what happens on the Internet. My own experience as a Cisco Engineer brings me in contact with it on a daily basis. The guides here show how to use it.

Guide to IP or Internet Protocol

The OSI (open systems interconnect) model is the basic network control model. It has seven parts or layers: application, presentation, session, transport, network, data-link, and physical. The Internet protocol (IP) is a basic numerical protocol that assigns a number to every network device, just like an area code and phone number is assigned to every phone. How the IP protocol works can be exasperating, and fascinating. This Bright Hub guide to the Internet Protocol, discusses how it works, how it is implemented, the different versions (4 vs 6), and the future of the protocol. Readers with either a little or a lot of experience will learn many different aspects of IP.
