Internet Protocol is part of the Internet suite of communications protocols that provides globally unique addresses in dotted quad notation, transmits data in packets and performs routing between IP based networks.
This entire tutorial pertains to what is referred to as Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4). There is also exists the next generation of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6 or IPng) that was created to fix some of the problems that weren't foreseen when IPv4 was created. Most Internet Service Providers are capable of handling IPv6, but the vast majority of Internet users are still using IPv4.
