SIP As Transport Protocol in OSI?[edit]

In the TCP model, Session Initiation Protocol is at application layer because there really is nothing else over the transport layer. But given what is listed on OSI, it seems SIP should be included at the transport layer there. This is especially true with its growing importance of SIP in VoIP.

It just seems like it should be here somewhere... The preceding unsigned comment was added by 157.127.124.134 (talk • contribs) 12:51, 26 August 2005.

Scheme vs. protocol[edit]

HTTPS (actually https:) is a URI scheme, not a protocol. The scheme describes a different protocol stack that includes SSL or TLS, but the protocol is no different. For that reason, might it be better to keep the distinction clear? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 47.153.233.240 (talk • contribs) 05:15, 29 August 2005.

Layers in the Internet Protocol stack[edit]

The above captioned section groups a lot of TCP/IP and non TCP/IP protocols in the OSI model. There should be something to identify the TCP/IP protocols from these, especially when the article does not provide a list of TCP/IP protocols anywhere else. RMehra 25 January 2006

Please Remember The 1960s![edit]

A student of mine approached me with the view that ARPANET was created in the 1970s. The view was taken from Wiki:

"Today's IP networking represents a synthesis of two developments that began in the 1970s, namely LANs (Local Area Networks) and the Internet, both of which have revolutionized computing."

I have inserted "1960s and 1970s" as 1970s alone, when referring to the beginnings of the development of the internet, is misleading.
