Basic Network Protocols

A protocol is a standard set of rules that allow electronic devices to communicate with each other. these rules include what type of data may be transmitted, what commands are used to send and receive data, and how data transfers are confirmed.

you can think of a protocol as a spoken language. each language has it is own rules and vocabulary. if two people share the same language, they can communicate effectively.
