Hi all !
I'm a bit new to Java Networking, so some newbie questions.
Are OSI and TCP/IP both protocols or reference models? If they are protocols which one is widely used?
Any web site for more info on this ???
Regards

Hello,
OSI can refer to either a suite of protocols OR a reference model. TCP/IP is also a suite of protocols, and is the more widely used one.
Cheers,
RL
