      • too decentralized to quantify
      • a network with no hard boundaries
  • 7.
    • The language at the heart of the Internet is TCP/IP…
      • Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol
      • Allows cross-network communication
    Internet Protocols
  • 8. Internet Protocols
    • TCP breaks messages into packets
      • Each packet has all the information needed to travel from network to network
      • Host systems called Routers determine how to route transmissions
  • 9. Internet Protocols
    • IP is the address for the packets
      • Each Internet host computer has a unique IP Address
      • Each address is comprised of four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as
  • 10. Internet Addresses
    • The host is named using DNS (domain name system), which translates IP addresses into a string of names.
    “ Each person on the “Internet” has a unique e-mail “address” created by having a squirrel run across a computer keyboard.” Dave Barry
  • 11. Internet Addresses
    • Top level domains include:
      • . edu - educational sites
      • .com - commercial sites
      • .gov - government sites
      • .mil - military sites
      • .net - network administration sites
      • .org - nonprofit organizations
  • 12. Internet Addresses
    • An Internet address includes: username@hostname.sub.dom
      • username is the person’s “mailbox”
      • hostname is the name of the host computer and is followed by one or more domains separated by periods:
        • host.subdomain.domain
        • host.domain
        • host.subdomain.subdomain.domain
  • 13. Internet Addresses
    • [email_address]
    Examples: [email_address] User President whose mail is stored on the host whitehouse in the government domain User hazel_filbert at the server for Lane County, Oregon, k-12 school district

    • Files are stored on your computer
    • Response time is quick
  • 15. Internet Access Options
    • Dialup Connections
      • limited connection using a modem
      • Full access dial up uses SLIP or PPP via modem

    Internet Applications: Communication and Connection
  • 21.
    • An application server stores applications- PC office applications, databases, or other applications - and makes them available to client programs that request them.
    • An application server might be housed at an application service provider (ASP) - a company that manages and delivers application services on a contract basis.
    • A Web server stores Web pages and sends pages to client Web browsers.
    Internet Applications: Communication and Connection
