Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What does TCP stand for?

    • A.

      Transport Client Port

    • B.

      Transmission Client Port

    • C.

      Telnet Control Port

    • D.

      Transmission Control Protocol

    Correct Answer
    D. Transmission Control Protocol
    Explanation
    TCP stands for Transmission Control Protocol. It is a standard protocol used for transmitting data over networks. TCP ensures reliable and ordered delivery of data packets between devices on a network. It breaks down large data files into smaller packets, sends them across the network, and then reassembles them at the receiving end. TCP also includes error-checking mechanisms to ensure data integrity and flow control to manage the rate of data transmission. Overall, TCP is a fundamental protocol in the internet protocol suite and is widely used for various applications such as web browsing, email, file transfer, and more.

    What is a PORT?

    • A.

      A collection of protocol layers

    • B.

      An address for a software process

    • C.

      A protocol stack for TCP/IP

    • D.

      A software process that provides a service requested by a client

    Correct Answer
    B. An address for a software process
    Explanation
    A port is an address for a software process. In computer networking, a port is a communication endpoint that is used by software to identify a specific process or service on a device. It allows multiple processes or services to run on the same device without conflicts. Each port is assigned a unique number, known as a port number, which helps in routing the data packets to the correct destination. By using port numbers, the communication between different software processes is facilitated, allowing them to send and receive data over a network.

    The first layer of the TCP/IP protocol stack is the ________  layer.

    Correct Answer
    application
    Explanation
    The first layer of the TCP/IP protocol stack is the application layer. This layer is responsible for providing network services to user applications. It interacts directly with the user and enables communication between different applications running on different devices. The application layer includes protocols such as HTTP, FTP, SMTP, and DNS, which are used for tasks like web browsing, file transfer, email, and domain name resolution.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The second layer of the TCP/IP protocol stack is what?

    • A.

      TCP / Transport

    • B.

      Link

    • C.

      IP / Network

    • D.

      Socket

    Correct Answer
    A. TCP / Transport
    Explanation
    The second layer of the TCP/IP protocol stack is the Transport layer, also known as TCP (Transmission Control Protocol). This layer is responsible for establishing a reliable connection between two devices and ensuring the reliable delivery of data packets. TCP provides features such as error checking, flow control, and congestion control to ensure the integrity and efficiency of data transmission. It works closely with the Network layer (IP) to route the data packets across the network.

  • 5. 

    The data flow between each layer is described as?                                                                

    • A.

      Fast

    • B.

      Directional

    • C.

      Bidirectional

    • D.

      Slow

    Correct Answer
    C. Bidirectional
    Explanation
    The data flow between each layer is bidirectional, meaning that information can flow in both directions. This suggests that there is a two-way communication between the layers, allowing for the exchange of data and information back and forth.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which layer is missing?

    Correct Answer
    link
  • 7. 

    What is a socket?

    • A.

      A combination of a host IP address and a port number

    • B.

      A collection of protocol layers

    • C.

      Provides a service requested by a client

    • D.

      A set agreed signals

    Correct Answer
    A. A combination of a host IP address and a port number
    Explanation
    A socket is a combination of a host IP address and a port number. This combination allows for communication between two devices over a network. The IP address identifies the specific device, while the port number identifies the specific application or service running on that device. By using sockets, data can be sent and received between the client and server applications, enabling communication and interaction between them.

  • 8. 

    Give the common port number for a Web Server

    Correct Answer
    80
    8080
    Explanation
    The common port number for a web server is 80. This is the default port used for HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) communication between a client (such as a web browser) and a server. However, in some cases, web servers may also use port 8080 as an alternative port number for HTTP communication.

  • 9. 

    The term used to describe the way the layers are grouped is known as

    • A.

      Piled

    • B.

      Linked

    • C.

      Encapsulated

    • D.

      Attached

    Correct Answer
    C. Encapsulated
    Explanation
    The term used to describe the way the layers are grouped is known as "encapsulated". This suggests that the layers are enclosed or wrapped within each other, forming a protective or contained structure.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The link layer adds the _______ address to the packet

    Correct Answer
    MAC
    hardware
    Explanation
    The link layer adds the MAC address to the packet. The MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network interface card (NIC) of a device. It is used to identify the source and destination devices on a local network. The link layer is responsible for encapsulating the network layer packet into a frame that includes the MAC address. The inclusion of the MAC address allows for the proper routing and delivery of the packet within the local network.
