Byte number - transport layer, Computer Networking

Byte Number

TCP number all data  bytes that  are transmitted  in a connection. Numbering  is independent  in each direction when TCP receives bytes of data  a process. It stores  them in the sending  buffer and number them. The numbering  does not necessarily start from0. Instead TCP generated a random number between 0 and 232-1 for  the number  of the  first byte  for  example  if the  random numbers  happens to be 1057 and the total  data to be sent are 6000 bytes,  are numbered from 1057 and 7056.

The bytes  of data  being  transferred in each  connection are numbered by TCP. The  numbering starts  with a randomly generated number.
