    TCP offload engine or TOE is a technology used in network interface cards (NIC)

    Hi,

    Maybe you want to read this first: TCP offload engine. :rolleyes:

    THEN you might ask more specific questions about the 'TCP offload engine or TOE is a technology used in network interface cards (NIC) to offload processing of the entire TCP/IP stack to the network controller'.

    With kind regards
    Joe :cool:
