Which TCP/IP protocol that manages packet delivery guarantees that dekivery?
IP IP, which stands for Internet Protocol,is a Network layer protocol that is responsible for delivering packets to network devices. The IP protocol uses logical IP addresses to refer to individual devices rather than physical (MAC) addresses. [ A protocol called ARP (for Address Resolution Protocol) handles the task of converting IP addresses to MAC addresses. Because IP addresses consist of a
network part and a host part, IP is a routable protocol. As a result, IP can forward a packet to another network if the host is not on the current network. (The ability to route packets across networks is where IP gets its name. An internet is a series of two or more connected TCP/IP networks that can be reached by routing.) TCP TCP, which stands for Transmission Control Protocol,is a connection-oriented Transport layer protocol. TCP lets a device reliably send a packet to another device on the same network or on a different network. TCP ensures that each packet is delivered if at all possible. It does so by establishing a connection with the receiving device and then sending the packets. If a packet doesn't arrive, TCP resends the packet. The connection is closed only after the packet has been successfully delivered or an unrecoverable error condition has occurred. One key aspect of TCP is that it's always used for one-to-one communications. In other words, TCP allows a single network device to exchange data with another single network device. TCP is not used to broadcast messages to multiple network recipients. Instead, the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is used for that purpose. Many well-known Application layer protocols rely on TCP. For example, when a user running a Web browser requests a page, the browser uses HTTP to send a request via TCP to the Web server. When the Web server receives the request, it uses HTTP to send the requested Web page back to the browser, again via TCP. Other Application layer protocols that use TCP include Telnet (for terminal emulation), FTP (for file exchange), and SMTP (for e-mail). ]

Describe the difference between public and private IP addresses
Weegy: A public IP address is any valid address, or number, that can be accessed over the Internet. [ Internet standards groups, such as the Network Information Center (NIC) or the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), are the organizations responsible for registering IP ranges and assigning them to organizations, such as Internet Service Providers (ISPs), while A private IP address is any number or address assigned to a device on a private TCP/IP Local Area Network that is accessible only within the Local Area Network. For a resource inside the Local Area Network to be accessible over the Internet, a device within the Local Area Network must be connected to the Internet with a public IP address, and the networking must be appropriately configured. ] (More)

What are the last 64 bits of a IPV6 IP address called? How are these bits used?
Weegy: The last 64 bits of a IPV6 IP address is called Interface ID. The last 64 bits of an IPv6 address are the interface identifier that is unique to the 64-bit prefix of the IPv6 address. [ The ways in which an interface identifier is determined are as follows: RFC 2373 states that all unicast addresses that use the prefixes 001 through 111 must also use a 64-bit interface identifier that is derived from the Extended Unique Identifier (EUI)-64 address. RFC 3041 describes a randomly-generated interface identifier that changes over time to provide a level of anonymity. An interface identifier that is assigned during stateful address autoconfiguration (for example, through DHCPv6). DHCPv6 standards are currently being defined. The IPv6 protocol for the Windows Server 2003 family and Windows XP does not support stateful address configuration or DHCPv6. An interface identifier that is manually configured. ............. ] (More)
