TCP/IP stands for transmission control protocol/internet protocol.
TCP/IP is a set of rules (protocols) governing communications among all computers on the internet. More specifically, TCP/IP dictates how information should be packaged (turned into bundles of information called packets), sent, and received, as well as how to get to its destination. TCP/IP is a combination of two separate protocols. TCP (transmission control protocol) and IP (internet Protocol). The internet protocol standard dictates the logistics of packets sent out over networks, it tells packets where to go and how to get there.
The transmission control protocol is responsible for ensuring the reliable transmission for ensuring the reliable transmission of data across internet-connected networks. TCP checks packets for errors and submits requests for re. transmissions If any are found.
