    Internet protocols are agreed-upon standards for exchanging data between networks on different platforms and in different environments.
    some of the networking protocols in use today:

    TCP/IP
    TCP/IP for UNIX, Windows NT, Windows 95 and other platforms
    TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is the basic communication language, or protocol, of the Internet. It can also be used as a communications protocol in an intranet or extranet. When you set up access to the Internet, your computer needs a copy of the TCP/IP program to communicate with other machines.

    TCP/IP is a two-layer program. The higher layer, Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), manages the assembling of a message or file into smaller packets that are transmitted over the Internet and received by a TCP layer that reassembles the packets into the original message. The lower layer, Internet Protocol (IP), handles the address part of each packet so that it gets to the right destination. Each machine receiving a packet checks this address to see where to forward it. Not all packets from the same message are routed the same way, but they'll all be reassembled correctly at the destination.

    NetBIOS/NetBEUI for LAN Manager and Windows NT networks
    NetBEUI (NetBIOS Extended User Interface) is an extended version of NetBIOS, the program that lets computers communicate within a Local Area Network (LAN). NetBEUI (pronounced net-buie) arrange information in a data transmission in a way that extends the functioning of NetBIOS.

    NetBEUI was developed by IBM for its LAN Manager product, and has been adopted by Microsoft for its Windows NT, LAN Manager and Windows for Workgroups products. Hewlett-Packard and DEC use it in comparable products.

    NetBEUI is the best performance choice for communication within a single LAN. As with NetBIOS, it does not support the routing of messages to other networks and its interface must be adapted to other protocols such as Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) or TCP/IP.

    A recommended method is to install both NetBEUI and TCP/IP in each computer and set the server up to use NetBEUI for communication within the LAN and TCP/IP for communication beyond the LAN.

    HTTP
    This is the language used for viewing web or intranet pages.
    HTTP (the HyperText Transfer Protocol) is the set of rules for exchanging files (text, graphic images, sound, video and other multimedia files) on the World Wide Web. Relative to the TCP/IP suite of protocols (which are the basis for information exchange on the Internet), HTTP is an application protocol. Essential features of HTTP include the idea that files can contain references to other files whose selection will form subsequent transfer requests. Web servers contain HTML and other files they can serve, and have an HTTP daemon (program) that is designed to wait for HTTP requests and handle them when they arrive.

    FTP
    A web browser is an HTTP client, sending requests to server machines. When using the web, the user performs a file request by either "opening" a web file by typing in a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) or clicking on a hyperlink. The browser responds to the HTTP request and sends it to the Internet Protocol Address indicated by the URL. The HTTP daemon in the destination server machine receives the request and, after any necessary processing, the requested file is returned.

    This is the language used for sending files to the Internet.
    FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a standard Internet protocol and is the simplest way to exchange files between computers on the Internet. Like the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP), which transfers web pages and related files, and the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), which transfers email, FTP is an application protocol that uses TCP/IP protocols. FTP is commonly used to transfer (upload) web pages and other files from their source to the website host computer. It's also commonly used to download programs and other files to your computer from other servers.

    lol you know all of that but not firewalls?

    I just couldn't find the appropriate setting in my firewall, I just doing an NCFE in telematics, and was doing a module on networking at the time.. right time I s'pose!!
