4 Protocol Examples

The following sections describe several operations as used in common scenarios to illustrate the function of the TIP Extensions. These protocol examples generally assume that a TCP transport session has already been established between the two TIP roles. However, some examples exhibit how one TIP role establishes a new TCP transport session with another TIP role, because of the protocol that is being demonstrated.

TIP roles communicate with each other by using TIP connections that are in turn layered on top of the TCP transport infrastructure.
