“For communication across Internet, TCP/IP protocol suit is used for achieving universal services and routers are used to connect different networks. TCP is one of the major transport protocol used in TCP/IP protocol suit which provides reliable data delivery service to applications.
Suppose two applications use TCP to establish a connection, communicate, terminate the connection, and then open a new connection. Further suppose a FIN message sent to shut down the first connection is duplicated and delayed until the second connection has been established”.
a. If a copy of the old FIN is delivered, will TCP terminate the new connection? Why or why not?
b. Can a router send request to another router for TCP connection? Give reason.
