Two Marks with Answers
1. DEFINE INTERNET .
Network is an interconnection of systems to share data and information.
Internet is network of network or collection of heterogeneous networks.
2. WHAT IS THE USE OF IP ADDRESSES AND PORTS?
It is very difficult to remember the IP address of each and every node.
It order to avoid this problem domain names are used.
Example googl.com, rediff.com etc.
Ports are used in receiving and sending data to another server or client.
Example for port numbers
Protocol Port Protocol Purpose
Echo 7 TCP/UDP Echo is a test protocol used to verify that 2 machines
1. are able to connect by having one echo back the Application Layer Transport Layer (TCP, UDP) Internet layer (IP) Physical path(Ethernet, FDDI etc) other’s input.
Discard 9 TCP/UDP Discard is a less useful test protocol in which all data
2. received by the server is ignored.
NTP 119 Usenet News transfer is more formally known as the
Network News Transfer Protocol
RMI Registry 1099 This is the registry service for Java Remote Objects.
3. MENTION THE DIFFERENT INTERNET ADDRESS CLASS AND IT’S RANGE.
Internet addresses are assigned to different organizations by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).
ISP – Internet Service Providers gives a block addresses.
Class C address block specifies the first 3 bytes of address, for example 199.1.32. This allows room for 254 individual addresses from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52
Class B address specified only the first 2 bytes of the addresses .
There are also Class D and E addresses are used for IP multicast group.
4. DEFINE FIREWALL.
The hardware and software that sits between the Internet and the local network, checking all the data that comes and goes out is called “firewalls”. The security is provided using SSL(Secure Socket Layer) in internet.
5. DEFINE PROXY SERVERS
Proxy servers are related to firewalls prevents hosts on a network from making direct connections to the outside world, a proxy server can act as a go-between. Thus a machine that is prevented from connecting to the external network by a firewall would make a request for a web page from the local proxy server instead of requesting the web page directly from the remote web server.
6. WHAT IS THE USE OF HTTP PROTOCOL?
HTTP is a standard protocol that defines how a web client talks to a server and how data is transferred from the server back to the client.
HTTP relies heavily on two other standards.
MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions), HTML
7. WHAT IS THE USE OF MIME?(Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension)
MIME is a way to encode different kinds of data, such as sound and text, to be transmitted over a 7-bit ASCII connection. It also lets the recipient know what kind of data has been sent, so that it can be displayed properly. MIME was originally designed to facilitate multimedia email and to provide an encoding that could get binary data past the most train –damaged mail transfer programs.
MIME is an open standard for sending multipart, multimedia data through Internet email. MIME was originally intended for email, it has become a widely used technique to describe a file’s contents so that client software can tell the difference between different kinds of data.
8. DEFINE URL & URN.
Uniform Recourse Locator is a way to unambiguously identify the location of a resource on the Interned.
URI Uniform Resource Identifier is a string of characters in a particular syntax that identifies a resource.
The resource identified may be a file on a server, but it may also be an email address, a news message, b book, a person’s name, an Internet host.
data – base 64 encoded data included directly in a link
file – A file on a local disk
FTP – An FTP server
gopher – a Gopher server
mailto – an email address
news – A Usenet newsgroup
Telnet – A connection to a Telnet based service (only used in Remote Login System)
urn – Uniform Resource Name
9. EXPLAIN ABOUT URN
There are 2 types of URLs.
URL – Unform Resource Locaters (is a pointer to a particular resource on the Internet at a particular location.)
URNs – Uniform Resource Name (is a name for a particular resource but without reference to a particular location)
SYNTAX OF URN
namespace - is the name of a collection of certain kinds of resources maintained by some authority.
resource-name – is the name of a resource within that collection.
10. WHAT IS MEANT BY RELATIVE URL?
URLs that are not complete but inherit pieces from their parent are called relative URL.
In contrast, a completely specified URL is called an absolute URL address.
11. EXPLAIN ABOUT SGML – STANDARD GENERALIZED MARKUP LANGUAGE
• HTML is an instance of SGML.
• SGML was invented beginning in the mid-1970s by Charles Goldfarb at IBM
• SGML is now an International Standards Organization (ISO) standard, specifically ISO 8879:1986.
• SGML allows the user to create various user defined tags easily without any rules.
EXAMPLE 1 – FOR PRODUCT DETAILS
<PRODUCT MANUFACTURER=”ABC COMPANY”> -Assumed as record name
<NAME> KEY BOARD </NAME>
<TYPE> KEY BOARD </TYPE>
<PRICE> 1500 </PRICE>
12. EXPLAIN ABOUT XML – EXTENSIBLE MARKUP LANGUAGE
• Similar to SGML
• Allows the user to create any number of user defined tags.
• The value of an attribute may be enclosed in double of single quotes like this:
• <H1 ALIGN=CENTER> THIS IS CENTERED H1 HEADING </H1>
• STYLES can be introduced for XML program like CSS using XLS file(XML Style Sheet program)
• Here XML styles are saved with an extension of .xls (XML style sheet)
• Using .xls files various styles can be given to the data which is inside the XML program.
13. LIST THE STEPS FUNCTIONS OF HTTP PROTOCOL.
Standard protocol for communication between web browsers and web servers.
HTTP specifies how a client and server establish a connection, how the client requests data from the server, how the server responds to that request, and finally how the connection is closed.
HTTP 1.0 is the currently accepted version of the protocol. It uses MIME to encode data. The basic protocol defines a sequence of 4 steps for each request from a client to the server.
Making the connection
Making a request
Receiving the response
Closing the connection
14. WHAT IS DOMAIN & MENTION DIFFERENT TYPES OF DOMAINS
Domain is a place where information is available.
DOMAIN NAME EXTENSION

70. What is meant by Stateless Connection?
When a web server receives a HTTP request from a web browser it evaluates the request and returns the requested document, if it exists, and then breaks the HTTP connection.This document is preceded by the response header, which has details about how to display thedocument that will be sent by the server. Each time a request is made to the server, it is as ifthere was no prior connection and each request can yield only a single document. This isknown as Stateless Connection.
