As a transport control protocol, Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) bridges an application to a low-level network, controls network congestion, and provides relia- bility to an end-to-end connection. This chapter discusses the details of TCP agents. Section 10.1 gives an overview of TCP agents. Here, we show a TCP network configuration method, a brief overview of TCP internal mechanism, TCP header format, and themain steps in defining TCP senders and TCP receivers. Sections 10.2 and 10.3 discuss the implementation of TCP receivers and senders, respectively. Sections 10.4-10.7 present the implementation of fourmain functionalities of a TCP sender. Finally, the chapter summary is provided in Sect. 10.8.
