  RFC 791 (rfc791) - Internet Protocol   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Internet protocol interfaces on one side to the higher level host-to-host protocols and on the other side to the local network protocol.
Since internet protocol is a datagram protocol, there is minimal memory or state maintained between datagram transmissions, and each call on the internet protocol module by the user supplies all information necessary for the IP to perform the service requested.
This is a internet datagram in version 4 of internet protocol; the internet header consists of five 32 bit words, and the total length of the datagram is 21 octets.

 Internet Protocols (IP)
The Internet protocols are the world's most popular open-system (nonproprietary) protocol suite because they can be used to communicate across any set of interconnected networks and are equally well suited for LAN and WAN communications.
Internet protocols were first developed in the mid-1970s, when the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) became interested in establishing a packet-switched network that would facilitate communication between dissimilar computer systems at research institutions.
To illustrate the scope of the Internet protocols, maps many of the protocols of the Internet protocol suite and their corresponding OSI layers.

 Internet Core Protocols: The Definitive Guide: Chapter The Internet Protocol
We saw that hardware-specific protocols are used by devices when they need to exchange data directly, that the Internet Protocol is used to get IP datagrams across the different network segments to their final destination, and that TCP and UDP provide transport and connection management services to the application protocols used by end-user applications.
RFC 791 goes on to say "The Internet Protocol is specifically limited in scope to provide the functions necessary to deliver a package of bits (an Internet datagram) from a source to a destination over an interconnected system of networks.
Also, since the higher-layer protocols provide their own error-correction routines, the data portion of the datagram will be verified by those other protocols anyway, so it makes little sense to validate the entire datagram when validation will occur at a later stage.

 IP Version 6 (IPv6)
IPv6 was recommended by the IPng Area Directors of the Internet Engineering Task Force at the Toronto IETF meeting on July 25, 1994 in RFC 1752, The Recommendation for the IP Next Generation Protocol.
The recommendation was approved by the Internet Engineering Steering Group and made a Proposed Standard on November 17, 1994.
Internet Protocol Version 6 is abbreviated to IPv6 (where the "6" refers to it being assigned version number 6).

 IP   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The IP (Internet Protocol) is a protocol which uses datagrams to communicate over a packet-switched network.
The IP protocol operates at the network layer protocol of the OSI reference model and is a part of a suite of protocols known as TCP/IP.
In a LAN environment, the protocol is normally carried by Ethernet, but for long distance links, a data link protocol such as HDLC is usually used.

 Voice-Over-Internet Protocol
Internet Voice, also known as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), is a technology that allows you to make telephone calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line.
The phone call goes over the Internet to the called party's local telephone company for the completion of the call.
If you have a broadband internet connection, you need not maintain and pay the additional cost for a line just to make telephone calls.

 TCP/IP, Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol
The TCP/IP protocol was deployed to the ARPANET network with some persuasion, as noted in the emails at the top of the page.
Not all sites were preparing to convert over their protocols, so Cerf, Jon Postel, and the TCP/IP team turned off the NCP network channel numbers on the ARPANET IMP's for a full day in mid 1982, so that only sites using TCP/IP could still operate.
With the rapid growth of the Internet through the 1990's, there was a rapid reduction in the number of free IP addresses available under IPv4, which was never designed to scale to planetary levels.

 Matisse's Glossary of Internet Terms
Usually this is done because the server owner wants their machine to be on a high-speed Internet connection and/or they do not want the security risks of having the server on thier own network.
So if an Internet company says they will soon have a POP in Belgrade, it means that they will soon have a local phone number in Belgrade and/or a place where leased lines can connect to their network.
On the Internet "protocol" usually refers to a set of rules that define an exact format for communication between systems.
