A web client is receiving a response for a web page from a web server. From the perspective of the client, what is the correct order of the protocol stack that is used to decode the received transmission?
- Ethernet, IP, TCP, HTTP
- HTTP, TCP, IP, Ethernet
- Ethernet, TCP, IP, HTTP
- HTTP, Ethernet, IP, TCP
Answers Explanation & Hints:
1. HTTP governs the way that a web server and client interact.
2. TCP manages individual conversations between web servers and clients.
3. IP is responsible for delivery across the best path to the destination.
4. Ethernet takes the packet from IP and formats it for transmission.
