What Dose This Mean Or Do? ADSI
Short for Active Directory Service Interface, ADSI enables access to Active Directory by exposing objects stored in the directory as COM objects.
Short for Analog Display Service Interface, ADSI was developed by Bellcore in 1993 is a protocol that allows for voice and data to be heard and displayed on devices such as phones over a analog telephone line.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
Aloha
Protocol for satellite and terrestrial radio transmissions. In pure Aloha, a user can transmit at any time but risks collisions with other users' messages. "Slotted Aloha" reduces the chance of collisions by dividing the channel into time slots and requiring that the user send only at the beginning of a time slot. Aloha was the basis for Ethernet, a local area network protocol.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
AppleTalk
Network protocol used with Apple Macintosh computers and networking devices to communicate with each other.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
ARP
Short for Address Resolution Protocol, ARP is a protocol used with the IP protocol for mapping a 32-bit Internet Protocol address to a MAC address that is recognized in the local network specified in RFC 826. Once recognized the server or networking device returns a response containing the required address.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
BOOTP
Short for bootstrap protocol, BOOTP is a protocol that allows a diskless workstation to discover certain network information, for example its own IP address.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
CIFS
Short for Common Internet File System. Developed by Microsoft, CIFS is a protocol that runs over TCP/IP and allows users of multiple platforms to share files with millions of other users at a time.
What Dose This Mean Or Do? DHCP
Short for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, DHCP is a protocol used to assign an IP address to a device connected to a Network automatically.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
FDHP
Short for Full Duplex Handshaking Protocol, FDHP is a type of protocol used by duplex modems that negotiates the type of transmission and than matches that transmission.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
FSP
Short for File Sharing Protocol, FSP is a UDP-based file sharing program similar to FTP used with TCP.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
UDP
Short for User Datagram Protocol and defined in RFC 768, UDP is a alternative protocol to the TCP/IP that runs on top of IP and is sometimes referred to as UDP/IP. Unlike TCP/IP, UDP does not divide each transmission into packets, which allows for a faster transmission. However, UDP does not provide error checking.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
FTP
FTP or File Transfer Protocol was first purposed in 1971 for and developed for implementation on hosts at M.I.T. and was later defined by RFC 959 published in 1985. FTP is a standard way to transfer files between computers. The method has built-in error checking. FTP often refers to a standard way of transferring many types of files over the Internet.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
HTTP
Short for HyperText Transfer Protocol, HTTP is a set of standards that let users of the World Wide Web to exchange information found on web pages. When a user wish to access a web page it is commonly required that http:// be placed before the address allowing the browser to know it is going through HTTP.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
IMAP
Short for Internet Message Access Protocol, IMAP was Developed at Stanford University 1986 IMAP is a protocol which also uses SMTP for retrieving e-mail messages. IMAP4 is latest version of IMAP that is similar to POP3, however supports additional features not found in POP3.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
SMTP
Short for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, SMTP is a communications protocol that sends e-mail messages from one server to another. The messages can then be retrieved from a server with generally either POP or IMAP.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
TCP/IP
Short for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, TCP/IP was developed by the U.S. Department of Defense. TCP/IP is a language governing communications among all computers on the Internet.
TCP/IP is two separate protocols, TCP and IP, that are used together. The Internet Protocol standard dictates how packets of information are sent out over networks. IP has a packet-addressing method that lets any computer on the Internet forward a packet to another computer that is a step (or more) closer to the packet's recipient.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
IP
Short for Internet Protocol, the IP is an address of a computer or other network device on a network using IP or TCP/IP . Is a number, is an example of such an address. These addresses are similar to an address used on a house and help data reach its appropriate location on a network.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
IPsec
Short for IP Security, IPsec is a set of protocols being developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force to support secure exchange of packets at the IP layer.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
PPPoE
Short for Point-to-Point over Ethernet, PPPoE is defined in RFC 2516 and is commonly used with cable, DSL, etc. to connect to the Internet using the PPP and Ethernet protocols.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
PPTP
Short for Point-to-Point Tunnel Protocol, PPTP was a protocol standard sponsored by Microsoft , U.S. Robotics, and other companies that allows companies to extend their networks through private tunnels over the Internet. PPTP is used to creating a VPN.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
VPN
Short for Virtual Private Network, VPN is a type of network that allows a user to connect to a network through a tunneling protocol and access internal internet and intranet web sites and e-mail. Virtual Private Networks are commonly used to allow an employee with a large company to connect to the companies intranet.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
WAP
Short for Wireless Application Protocol, WAP is specifications for a set of communication protocols used to allow wireless devices to access the Internet and other network utilities such as e-mail, chat, etc
What Dose This Mean Or Do?

Also known as IP telephone, VOIP is short for Voice Over Internet Protocol and is a internet protocol that enables users to make calls over the Internet. This enables long distant phone calls to be cheaper, although at a lower quality of audio
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
NSP
Abbreviated as NSP, a Name Server Protocol is used with Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) connections. The name server is responsible for taking requests of other computers on a network and providing that computer with a name to number translation known as a Internet Protocol (IP). answers requests from users to help them get to the computer or information they want.
What Dose This Mean Or Do?
