    Extremely fast protocol used for network file transfers on the World Wide Web.
  5. Address Resolution Protocol (ARP)
    A protocol in the TCP/IP suite used with the command-line utility of the same name to determine the MAC address that corresponds to a particular IP address.
  6. Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR)
    Method of categorizing IP address in order to distribute them.
