STP adds a four-byte header to each chunk and puts the port number of the destination process in this header. STP then gives the destination host address and the resulting segment to the network layer. The network layer delivers the segment to STP at the destination host.

After receiving the segment, STP at the receiving host gives the application process the application data and the source port number. c) No, the transport layer does not have to do anything in the core; the transport layer “lives” in the end systems. 2. a) For sending a letter, the family member is required to give the delegate the letter itself, the address of the destination house, and the name of the recipient.
