What are the TCP/IP layers in Distributed Computing?

TCP/IP protocol stack layers

  1. An application-layer protocol is a language network clients and servers use to communicate with each other.
  2. The network layer is responsible for moving data between machines across the boundaries of physical networks.
  3. The transport layer handles the problem of directing information between processes, rather than just between machines.
  4. The link layer is responsible for establishing communication between machines at the level of a physical connection.
