The Socket Interface Seminar Report

Download Full Seminar report on The Socket Interface. We must have an interface between the application programs and the protocol software in order to use network facilities. The seminar is a model of an interface between application programs and TCP/IP protocols. The standard of TCP/IP protocol does not specify exactly how application programs interact with the protocol software. Thus the interface architecture is not standardized; its design lies outside of the scope of the protocol suite. It is further should be noticed that it is inappropriate to tie the protocols to a particular interface because no single interface architecture works well on all systems. In particular, because protocol software resides in a computer’s operating system, interface details depend on the operating system.

In spite of the lack of standards, a programmer must know about such interfaces to be able to use TCP/IP. Although we have chosen the UNIX operating system in order to explain the model, it has widely accepted and is used in many systems. Download Full Seminar report on The Socket Interface.
