Interesting facts

The TCP mechanism provides a data stream with a preset connection, re-requests data in the event of data loss, and eliminates duplication when two copies of the same packet are received, thereby guaranteeing, in contrast to UDP, the integrity of the transmitted data and notifying the sender of the transmission results.
