Abstract: Data transfer from one system to another has always been a challenging task. Multiple protocols have been developed to transmit data from one system to another, considering the security, convenience, and speed criteria. TCP (transmission control protocol) stands to be the most widely used and accepted protocol. In this paper we have discussed various commonly employed protocols for data transfer. Many algorithms and protocols have been stated which are capable in providing high speed data transfer along with security, especially in terms of congestions (little or no congestion is desirable). We have studied various transmission control protocols in this paper.
