    Accepted Solution

    "IP suites" isn't exactly a common term for a protocol stack. It's more of a reference to a number of protocols and utilities.

    So, technically, I would say no. But the question so ambiguous that it's really impossible to say.

    I agree with donjohnston.  Although not the authority, here is Wikipedia's definition Internet Protocol Suite:

    Although close, there is a fine line.  Example: I would consider PING part of a IP Suite, but I would not consider it part of the stack.  PING is an application that make uses of the stack.
