5 Segment in TCP unit of data TCP Segment formatSeq. number: 32 bits tells the dest. Which byte in this sequence comprises the first byte in the segment.ACK number: defines the byte number that the source of the segment is expecting to receive from the other party.Header length (4bits): 20 to 60 bytes, value is 5 to 15.Reserved(6 bits): future use. Control: six control bits or flags.Windows size: defines the size of window in bytes.Checksum: 16 bitsUrgent pointer: defines the number that must be added to the sequence number to obtain the number of the last urgent byte.HeaderDataSource port number (16 bits)Destination port number (16 bits)Sequence number 32 bitsAcknowledge number 32 bitsHLEN + Reserved (4 +6)bitsWindow size 16 bitsChecksum 16 bitsUrgent pointer 16 bitsOptions & paddingFlagDescriptionURGThe value of the urgent pointer field is validACKThe value of the acknowledge field is validPSHPush the dataRSTThe connection must be resetSYNSynchronize sequence numbers during connectionFINTerminate the connection
6 Options in TCP HeaderUp to 40 bytes of optional information. Five options:end of option, no operation, Maximum segment size, window scale factor, and timestamp.1 byte1 byte2 bytesCode:Code:Code:Length:Maximum segment sizeEnd of optionNo optionMax. segment size option: define the max size of data,determined by the destination, default is 536.
7 Options in TCP HeaderWindow scale factor: 16 bits means from 0 to bytes. For a high channel (fiber-optic). Need a big window size. New = defined x 2 window size factorCode:Length:Scale factor1 byte1 byte1 byteTimestamp: 10-byte option. The timestamp field is filled by the source when segment leaves. The destination receives the segment and stores the timestamp value. When the destination sends an acknowledgement for the bytes, it enters the previously stored value in the echo reply field. The source checks the current time versus this value. The difference is the round-trip time.Code:Length:Timestamp valueTimestamp echo reply

9 Flow ControlSliding Window for flow controlTCP uses two buffers and one window to control the flow of data.The sending part has a buffer and the size of the window.The size of the window in the sending TCP is determined by the receiver and is announced in the ACK segments.Sliding window1234567891011121314Sliding window1234567891011121314Bytes 8 to 13 can be sentBytes 14~ cannot be sentBytes 4 to 7 have been sentPointer
10 Window managementSenderReceiverSeq: 1001, 4000 bytes4000ack: 5001 win: 0Buffer10004000ack: 5001 win:1000BufferSeq: 5001, 1000 bytesThe sending TCP sends 4K of data in its first segment. The buffer of the receiver windows becomes full. The receiver TCP ACK the receipt of the segment, but announces a window size of zero. The sending TP can not send any more data. It must wait for ack advertising a nonzero window size.
11 Silly Window SyndromeSending application creates data slowly or the receiving application consumes data slowly. If TCP contain only 1 byte of data. It means that we are sending a 41-byte that transfer only 1 byte. Meaning that using the capacity of the network very inefficiently.Syndrome Created by the sender: Nagle’s AlgorithmThe sending TCP sends the first piece of data it receives from the sending application program even if it is only one byte.After sending the first segment, the sending TCP accumulates data in the output buffer and waits until either the receiver TCP sends an ack or until enough data has accumulated to fill a max. segment.The above procedure is repeated.Syndrome created by the receiver: Clark’s solution and delayed Acknowledgement.Clark’s solution is to send an ack as soon as the data arrives, but to announce a window size of zero until either there is enough space to accommodate a segment of max-size or until half of the buffer is empty.Delayed ack is to delay sending the ack. This means that when a segment arrives, it is not ack immediately. The receiver waits until there is a decent amount of space in its incoming buffer before ack the arrived segments. Delayed ack bring another advantage, it reduces traffic. Yet, there also is a disadvantage that it may force the sender to retransmit the unpacked segment.
12 Error ControlTCP is a reliable transport layer protocol. Reliable means segments in order, without error, and without any part lost or duplicated.TCP provides reliability using error control. Error control includes mechanisms for detecting corrupted segments, lost segments, out-of-order segments, and duplicated segments.Error detection in TCP is achieved through the use of three simple tools: checksum, acknowledge, and time-out.Case 1: Corrupted Segment: Sender resend the corrupted segment after time-out, the receiver discarded the corrupted segment.Case 2: Lost Segment: Sender resend the corrupted segment after time-out.Case 3: Duplicate Segment: sender resend the segment after time-out but the ACK is only delayed. The receiver simply discard the duplicate segment.Case 4: Out-of-Order Segment: the segment that receiver before its previous segment would not ACK immediately instead they are buffer until its previous segments are all received and the ACK is resend.Case 5: Lost ACK: TCP uses an accumulative ACK system. Any ACK confirm everything up to the byte specified by the ACK number. So, if ACK 1601 is lost, but ACK 1801 is received, there is a confirmation up to 1801.
14 TCP TimersTCP uses the four timers: retransmission timer, Persistence timer, Keepalive Timer, and Time-Waited Timer.retransmission timer: handles the waiting time for an acknowledgement of a segment Retransmission time = 2 x RTT (round-trip time)RTT = x previous RTT + (1- ) x current RTTPersistence timer: when face with the zero window-size advertisement, TCP need this timer to solve the might deadlock problem if the receive resume to send the ack, but lost in the transmit.Keepalive timer: prevent a long idle connection between two TCPs. Suppose that a client opens a TCP connection to a server, transfers some data, and becomes silent.Time-waited timer: used during connection termination. When TCP closes a connection, it doesn’t consider the connection really closed. The connection is held in limbo for a time-waited period.
15 Connection_Three way handshaking TCP is a connection-oriented protocol which establishes a virtual path between the source and destination. Three-way HandshakingSenderReceiverStep 1: the client sends the first segment, a SYN segment. The segment includes the source and destination port numbers,…Step 2: the server sends the second segment, a SYN and ACK segment. This segment has a dual propose. First, it acknowledges the receipt of the first segment using the ACK flag and ack number. Second, the segment is used as the initialization segment for the server.Step 3: The client sends the third segment. This is just an ACK segment.Segment 1: SYNSeq: 1200, ack: --Seq: 1201, 200 bytesSegment 2: SYN+ ACKSeq: 4800, ack:1201Segment 3: ACKSeq: 1201, ack=4801
16 Connection Termination_ Four-way Handshaking Four-way Handshaking to terminate the connection.SenderReceiverStep 1: the client sends the first segment, a FIN segment.Step 2: the server sends the second segment, a ACK segment to confirm the receipt of the FIN segment.Step 3: the server TCP can continue sending data in the server-client direction. When it does not have any more data to send, it sends the third segment. FIN segment.Step 4: the client TCP sends the fourth segment an ACK segment to confirm the receipt of the FIN segment.Segment 1: FINSeq: 2500, ack: --Seq: 1201, 200 bytesSegment 2: ACKSeq: 7000, ack:2501Segment 3: FINSeq: 7001, ack:2501Segment 4: ACKSeq: 2501, ack=7002

It wants to abort the process, but it has already sent a huge amount of data.If it issues a abort command (control+C), these two characters will be stored at theend of the receiving TCP buffer. The solution is to send a segment with the URG bit set.The sending application tells the sending TCP that the piece of data is urgent. The sendingTCP creates a segment and inserts the urgent data at the beginning of the segment.

21 Connection establishment: Client DiagramInitiations:The client TCP starts in the CLOSED state.Connection establishment:While in this state, the client TCP can receive an active open reuest from the client application. It sends s SYN segment to the server TCP and goes to the SYN-SENT state.In this state, the client TCP can receive an SYN+ACK segment from the other TCP. It sends an ACK segment to the other TCP and goes to the ESTABLISHED state.Data transfer state.In the ESTABLISHED state, data transfers. The client remains in this state as long as it is sending and receiving data.Connection termination:While in this state, the client TCP can receive a close request from the client application. It sends a FIN segment to the other TCP and goes to the FIN-WAIT-1 state.While in this state, the client TCP waits to receive an ACK from the server TCP. When the ACK is received, it goes to the FIN-WAIT-2 state. It does not send anything. Now the connection is closed in one direction.The client remains in this state for the server to close the connection from the other end. If the client receives a FIN segment from the other end, it sends an ACK segment and goes to the TIME-WAIT state.When the client is in this state, it starts a timer and waits until this timer goes off. the value of this timer is set to double the lifetime estimate of a segment of maximum size. The client remains in the state before totally closing to let all duplicate packets, if any, arrive at their destination to be discarded. After the time-out, the client goes to the CLOSED state, where it began.
22 Passive for connection: Server DiagramInitiation:The server TCP starts in the CLOSED state.Passive for connection:While in this state, the server TCP can receive an passive open request from the server application. it goes to the LISTEN state.In this state, the server TCP can receive an SYN segment from the client TCP. It sends an SYN+ACK segment to the client TCP and goes to the SYN-RCVD state.While in this state, the server TCP can receive an ACK segment from the client TCP. It goes to the ESTABLISHED state. This is the data transfer state.Data transfer:In the ESTABLISHED state, data transfer. The server remains in this state as long as it is sending and receiving data.Passive for termination:While in this state, the server TCP can receive a FIN segment from the client TCP. It can send an ACK segment to the client and goes to the CLOSE-WAIT state.While in this state, the server TCP waits until it receives a close request from the server program. It then sends a FIN segment to the client and goes to the LAST-ACK state.When the server is in this state, the server waits for the last ACK segment. It then goes to the CLOSED state.
