What direction does the OSI flow in, or both?
What is the difference between the Session and Transport Layers?

Thx in advance?
Ciao and Meow

    Data encapsulation starts at the application layers and works its way down with each layer adding its own data. This would be the Sender

    Decapsulation flows the other way around...

    The tech notes here are excellent and should be read before sitting any exam that the ntoes here cover.

    My only complaint with the technotes here were the mnemonic for the OSI. I couldn't remember it for some reason. A friend taught me this one:

    Please Do Not Throw Sausage Pizza Away

    but, then i got hungry whenever i would study.

    The one I have memorized is;

    All People Seem To Need Data Processing...

    That one is common and it truly helped me remember the seven layers of the OSI reference model...

    Data Link (or simply Data)

    Easy Enough,

    The one I used to remember when I was studying for my network+ was:

    People ----> Physical
    Don't ----> Data Link
    Need ----> Network
    To ----> Transport
    Smoke ----> Session
    Pot ----> Presentation
    Anymore ----> Application

    Please don't take any offense to this. I just used this acronym because it was funny.
