Packet Sequencing
A way of dividing data up to transmit over the network and labeling them in the sequence they were divided to ensure that the data is reassembled in the right order
Routing Information Protocol (RIP)
A standard that outlines how routers exchange routing table data and is considered a distance-vector protocol, which means that it calculates the shortest distance between the source and destination.
Describe the functions provided by the Session layer of the OSI model.
Responsible for establishing and maintaining communication between two nodes on the network.Syncronizes the dialog between the two nodes.Determines whether communications have been cut-off and, if so, figures out where to restart transmission.Often called the "Traffic Cop"
What does a IP address identify?
A machine or group of machines
What is Balanced pair operation?
Two wires with equal and opposite signals
What does RSH allow us to do?
Run commands accross the network
