  Internet protocol suite Summary
The Internet protocol suite is the set of communications protocols that implement the protocol stack on which the Internet and most commercial networks run.
The Internet protocol suite — like many protocol suites — can be viewed as a set of layers, each layer solves a set of problems involving the transmission of data, and provides a well-defined service to the upper layer protocols based on using services from some lower layers.
The dynamic routing protocols which technically fit at this layer in the TCP/IP Protocol Suite (since they run over IP) are generally considered to be part of the Network layer; an example is OSPF (IP protocol number 89).

  Internet Protocols
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, Figure 30-1 maps many of the protocols of the Internet protocol suite and their corresponding OSI layers.

The Internet Protocol Suite like many can be viewed as a set of layers, each layer solves a set of problems involving the transmission of data, and provides a well-defined service to the higher layers based on using services from some lower layers.
The Internet Protocol Suite can be roughly fitted to the OSI model which describes a fixed set of 7 layers and some vendors like to use this model.
Protocols specific to a particular network type, but which are run on top of the basic hardware framing, ought to be at the Network layer.

 Internet Protocol Suite is also called the TCP/IP protocol suite.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The Internet protocol suite is sometimes called the TCP/IP protocol suite, after TCP/IP, which refers to the two most important protocols in it: the transmission control protocol (TCP) and the Internet protocol (IP).
The Internet protocol suite can be described by analogy with the OSI model, although there are some major differences and not all of the layers correspond well with their counterparts.
In particular, the Internet protocol suite model was produced as the solution to a practical engineering problem, whereas the OSI model is a more theoretical approach and was developed at an earlier stage in the evolution of networks.

Some of the protocols carried by IP, such as ICMP (used to transmit diagnostic information about IP transmission) and IGMP (used to manage multicast data) are layered on top of IP but perform internetwork layer functions, illustrating an incompatibility between the Internet and the IP stack and OSI model.

 RFC 1349 - Type of Service in the Internet Protocol Suite
Because the Internet itself has no direct knowledge of how to optimize the path for a particular application or user, the IP protocol [11] provides a (rather limited) facility for upper layer protocols to convey hints to the Internet Layer about how the tradeoffs should be made for the particular packet.
Use of the TOS Field in the Internet Protocols For the TOS facility to be useful, the TOS fields in IP packets must be filled in with reasonable values.
Internet researchers are actively studying this problem, and are optimistic that they will be able to invent ways in which the Internet Architecture can evolve to support resource guarantees while preserving the advantages of connectionless networking.

 RFC 2502 (rfc2502) - Limitations of Internet Protocol Suite for Distribute
Internet Protocol Suite facilities needed and not yet available for large-scale distributed simulation in shared networks: These derive from the need for real-time multicast with established quality of service in a shared network.
In summary, it is clear that a hybrid of best-effort and reliable multicast (not necessarily all in the same protocol) is needed to support DIS and HLA, and that the low-latency, reliable part of this hybrid is not available in the Internet protocol suite.
The new IPv6 protocol requires implementers to follow an integrated security architecture that provides the required integrity, authenticity, and confidentiality for use of the Internet by communities with stringent security demands, such as the financial community.

 2 The Internet Protocol Suite
To be able to  address each  endpoint of the internet from every other endpoint on the same internet, a new unified address space must be defined for the entire internet.
The equivalent   distributed protocol stack view of 2.7 A is shown in Figure 2.7 C. The IP layer entities of the hosts make use of the LAN service providers (LAN 1 and LAN 2), the  upper protocol layers use the services of the IP layer for their operations.
Not all protocol entities shown in Figure 2.13 have to be present in an implementation of the TCP/IP protocol suite on a node.

 Limitations of Internet Protocol Suite for Distributed Simulation the Large Multicast Environment
The Large-Scale Multicast Applications working group (LSMA) was formed to create a consensus based requirement for Internet Protocols to support Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) [3], its successor the High Level Architecture for simulation (HLA) [4], and related applications.
In general the Internet protocol suite uses the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) for reliable end-to-end transport, and the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) for best-effort end-to-end transport, including all multicast transport services.
Category (4) could be supported by a reliable multicast protocol such as the commercial multicast FTP offering from Starburst [7], however adequate congestion control has not been demonstrated in any such protocol.

A good-faith implementation of the protocols that was produced after careful reading of the RFC's and with some interaction with the Internet technical community, and that followed good communications software engineering practices, should differ from the requirements of this document in only minor ways.
Internet Engineering Task Force [Page 24] RFC1122 LINK LAYER October 1989 Note that the standard IP encapsulation in RFC-1042 does not use the protocol id value (K1=6) that IEEE reserved for IP; instead, it uses a value (K1=170) that implies an extension (the "SNAP") which can be used to hold the Ether-Type field.
In those cases where the Internet layer is required to pass an ICMP error message to the transport layer, the IP protocol number MUST be extracted from the original header and used to select the appropriate transport protocol entity to handle the error.

The protocol layers of the OSI Reference Model are traditionally listed from the top (layer 7) to the bottom (layer 1) up, as shown in the following table.
However, because of the rapid growth of the Internet, it was necessary to create a new Internet Protocol with improved capabilities, such as increased address space.
Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) is the protocol responsible for detecting network error conditions and reporting on them.

All data travelling over the Internet is made up of packets that contain a payload as well as extra information that determine where and how that payload will be delivered.
The Internet Protocol Suite (IPS) is composed of 5 layers which encapsulate the actual payload.
