I learning about networking and would like to better understand the flow of data within the Server only using the OSI model, Application Layer to the NIC. Whare I'm a bit confused is as follows,
The flow of data will start from: 1. Application Layer 2. Prsentation Layer 3. Session Layer 4. Transport Layer 5. Is the Network Layer skipped here since this is a routing ip function? 6. Datalink Layer (NIC) 7. Physcal data on the wire. To simply the questions, what layers does the server or pc use from the application to the NIC only?
Data Link Layer
