TCP/IP for Microsoft® Windows® CE-based devices allows devices to participate as peers and servers on local area networks (LANs) and remote networks.

TCP/Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is a connectionless, unreliable datagram protocol used primarily for addressing and routing packets between hosts. Connectionless means that a session is not established before exchanging data. Unreliable means that delivery is not guaranteed. IPv6 always makes a best-effort attempt to deliver a packet. An IPv6 packet might be lost, delivered out of sequence, duplicated, or delayed. IPv6 does not attempt to recover from these types of errors. The acknowledgment of packets delivered and the recovery of lost packets are done by a higher-layer protocol, such as TCP.
