    TCP is the most reliable connection-oriented protocol (layer 4) when compared with Ethernet, IP, UDP, and HTTP connections which are all connectionless (Layers 2,3, 4 and 5 respectively). How do you think TCP would handle the problem if an acknowledgment were lost so that the sender retransmitted the unacknowledged TCP segment, therefore, causing the receiving transport process to receive the same segment twice?

    ANSWER

    TCP is the most not spurious connection-oriented protocol (layer 4) when compared with Ethernet, IP, UDP, and HTTP connections which are perfect connectionless (Layers 2,3, 4 and 5 respectively). How do you conceive TCP would touch the example if an reception were lost so that the patron retransmitted the unacknowledged TCP section, consequently, causing the receiving rapture system to take the corresponding section twice?
