What does TCP/IP mean?

TCP/IP stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, which is a set of networking protocols that allows two or more computers to communicate. The Defense Data Network, part of the Department of Defense, developed TCP/IP, and it has been widely adopted as a networking standard.

For more information, you may consult several TCP/IP-related FAQs at the FAQ.org web site.
