1] The information in this short chapter is provided for completeness. There is an unwritten rule that all books that have to do with networking must at some point mention the OSI Reference Model. In practice, there are two kinds of standards, de facto and de jure. The latter are formally created by organizations that are specifically chartered with producing them, and often have the force of law or treaties behind them. [3] [2] In the context of this chapter, the standards we discuss are generally the de jure variety.

The Transport Layer The Transport layer is used to create logical connections or associations between software entities on two communicating devices. In the OSI-RM, this is the lowest layer that creates a formal binding between two network endpoints for exchanging data between them. It is possible for the Transport layer protocol to be either connection-oriented or connectionless. In the TCP/IP protocol suite, the TCP is the Transport layer protocol that provides a (connection-oriented) reliable octet stream service to the communicating endpoints.

2 SNAP sub-layer protocol. 2 SNAP headers (although to differentiate itself from IPv4, IPv6 uses a Type value of 0x86DD, compared to IPv4's Type value of 0x0800). Figure 2-5 illustrates the common protocol stack used when TCP/IP packets are transported over any IEEE 802 LAN medium. As indicated in the diagram, both IPv4 and IPv6 share the same basic encapsulation. 11 is highlighted. Figure 2-5. 3 Ethernet (with the "Length" as opposed to "Type" interpretation of the frame), the protocol stack using the LLC sub-layer is used.
