When devices talk to each other, I know they use the syn, ack etc, what does these mean ?

Re: device communication

Hi, syn, ack and so on are packets exchanged in a TCP session between peers.Ack is a acknowledgment and syn is for synchronization.

You can find at the web a lot of tutorial about this, for example:

http://www.ssfnet.org/Exchange/tcp/tcpTutorialNotes.html

But, for a good knowledge about networks I'll read a good book about networks.

Regards.

Hope this helps, if so pls rate
