Expansion ideas[edit]

This article would benefit greatly from a diagram showing where this protocol lies in the OSI model and also from an example showing what a typical packet or sequence of packets would actually look like. -- Beland 21:13, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

{{tech}} tag[edit]

I removed the {{tech}} tag, changing the article title to Internet Fibre Channel Protocol (formerly internet Fibre Channel Protocol). Despite the abbreviation "iFCP", I have never seen the word "internet" fully spelled in such a way that would warrant the title of the Wikipedia article using a lower-case "i" (for a comparison, see mRNA, but also iPOD). In addition, the article edit history seems to suggest that an editor attempted to reinsert a previously deleted {{technical}} tag, but didn't add it correctly.

However, I'm no expert on this subject. If any editor believes that the initial "i" in the article title shouldn't be capitalised, they can add {{tech}} to the top of the article to restore it. Cheers. – Liveste 08:56, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Agree: put the lower case in the acronym only. Now the tag here is still merited: the article needs to give a better context of what it is. Also need to expand by talking about history, and for example, if anyone every implemented it, or is of theoretical or historic interest only, and why. W Nowicki (talk) 21:49, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
