What is TCP IP header?

TCP IP header refers Transmission control Protocol is responsible to make communication between  devices and send data over network. It provides reliable, ordered and error check comunications. Major internet application rely on by this protocol such as World wide web, email, remote adminsitration, file transfer etc. Applications that don’t require reliableity use UDP (User Datagram Protocol).

  • TCP has main operations at the time of communication:
  • Establish connections
  • Terminate connections
  • Reliable Transmission
  • Error Detection and check sum
  • Flow Control
  • Congestion control
  • Decide maximum segment size
  • Acknowledgment of transfer data
  • Forcing data delivery

And these operations handled by TCP IP header Communication flags. There are six type of Flags used by TCP

URG (Urgent)
Data with this flag should be processed immediately
FIN (finish)
this flag tell there is no more data remain for transmission on remote system
RST (Reset)
It is used to reset the connection
PSH (Push)
It is used to instruct to send all buffered data immendiately to the recieving system
ACK (Acknowledgement)
Used acknowledge the receipt data packets
SYN (Synchronize)
It is used to initiate the a connection between the hosts
