Answer the following questions:
1. A station running TCP/IP needs to transfer a file to a host. The file contains 1024 bytes.

(Also assume that the three-way handshake and window size negotiation have been completed and that no errors occur during transmission.)
i) what is the protocol overhead (stated as a percentage)? [3 marks]
ii) perform the same calculation, this time assuming that both clients are using IPv6. [2 marks]
2. IP is a connection-less protocol, whereas TCP is connection-oriented. How can these two protocols coexist in the same protocol stack? [4 marks]
