Previous: Levels of Internet Connectivity
We have now introduced two more protocols from Level 3 Internet Connectivity.
- SLIP is hot-rod, bare bones encapsulation protocol
- Can be traced to TCP/IP implementations of the early
- Is used to frame IP (Internet Protocol) packets for
transmission over serial lines
- Makes no effort to minimize or compress the number
of bytes sent across a serial line
- Simpler than PPP yet not as
- Designed by committee, PPP is ``everything and the
- Allows the transmission of multi-protocol packets
over a single link (e.g. TCP/IP, DECnet, Appletalk)
- Has built in error correction
- More complex than SLIP.
