  • Hi

    Thank you for your post.

    This forum is meant for Windows server 2008 Application compatibility and certification issues. However, here are the details as per your request:

    Similarities between TCP/IP and OSI reference Model:

    ·         Both models are based on layered protocols

    ·         Both have a network, transport and application layer

    ·         In both models, the transport service can provide a reliable end-to-end byte stream

    On the other hand, they differ in several ways:

    ·         The numbers of layers are different

    ·         TCP/IP does not have session or presentation layers

    ·         OSI does not support internetworking and OSI has both connection oriented and connectionless service in the network layer

     

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks
