What does the Mount protocol do ?
The Mount protocol returns a file handle and the name of the file system
in which a requested file resides. The message is sent to the client
from the server after reception of a client's request.
What are Digrams and Trigrams?
The most common two letter combinations are called as digrams. e.g. th,
in, er, re and an. The most common three letter combinations are called
as trigrams. e.g. the, ing, and, and ion.
What is the HELLO protocol used for?
The HELLO protocol uses time instead of distance to determine optimal
routing. It is an alternative to the Routing Information Protocol.
What is the minimum and maximum length of the header in the TCP segment
and IP datagram?
The header should have a minimum length of 20 bytes and can have a
maximum length of 60 bytes.
What do you meant by "triple X" in Networks?
The function of PAD (Packet Assembler Disassembler) is described in a
document known as X.3. The standard protocol has been defined between
the terminal and the PAD, called X.28; another standard protocol exists
between the PAD and the network, called X.29. Together, these three
recommendations are often called "triple X".
What is attenuation?
The degeneration of a signal over distance on a network cable is called
What is Protocol Data Unit?
The data unit in the LLC level is called the protocol data unit (PDU).
The PDU contains of four fields a destination service access point (DSAP),
a source service access point (SSAP), a control field and an information
field. DSAP, SSAP are addresses used by the LLC to identify the protocol
stacks on the receiving and sending machines that are generating and
using the data. The control field specifies whether the PDU frame is a
information frame (I - frame) or a supervisory frame (S - frame) or a
unnumbered frame (U - frame).
What are the data units at different layers of the TCP / IP protocol
The data unit created at the application layer is called a message, at
the transport layer the data unit created is called either a segment or
an user datagram, at the network layer the data unit created is called
the datagram, at the data link layer the datagram is encapsulated in to
a frame and finally transmitted as signals along the transmission media.
What is difference between ARP and RARP?
The address resolution protocol (ARP) is used to associate the 32 bit IP
address with the 48 bit physical address, used by a host or a router to
find the physical address of another host on its network by sending a
ARP query packet that includes the IP address of the receiver.
The reverse address resolution protocol (RARP) allows a host to discover
its Internet address when it knows only its physical address.
What is MAC address?
The address for a device as it is identified at the Media Access Control
(MAC) layer in the network architecture. MAC address is usually stored
in ROM on the network adapter card and is unique.
What is terminal emulation, in which layer it comes?
Telnet is also called as terminal emulation. It belongs to application
What are the types of Transmission media?
Signals are usually transmitted over some transmission media that are
broadly classified in to two categories:-
These are those that provide a conduit from one device to another that
include twisted-pair, coaxial cable and fiber-optic cable. A signal
traveling along any of these media is directed and is contained by the
physical limits of the medium. Twisted-pair and coaxial cable use
metallic that accept and transport signals in the form of electrical
current. Optical fiber is a glass or plastic cable that accepts and
transports signals in the form of light.
This is the wireless media that transport electromagnetic waves without
using a physical conductor. Signals are broadcast either through air.
This is done through radio communication, satellite communication and
