What is an I.P. Address? (What is TCP/IP?)

TCP/IP is an acronym referring to the individual protocols used to communicate over the network: Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP).

IP packets are the electronic packages of data that the various resources on the network use to communicate. Any device that can send and receive an IP packet on the network is considered a host. Computers and printers are usually hosts.

The IP address contains information that identifies the network segment and the specific host number.
