TCP/IP uses several protocols, the two main ones being TCP and IP. TCP/IP is built into the UNIX operating system and is used by the Internet, making it the de facto standard for transmitting data over networks.

SLIP is an older and simpler protocol, but from a practical perspective, there's not much difference between connecting to the Internet via SLIP or PPP. In general, service providers offer only one protocol although some support both protocols.
RAS – Dial up Protocol service use for connecting to a Microsoft Remote Access Server
PPPoE- Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet used for connecting multiple network users on an Ethernet LAN to a remote site through a common device. Very popular with DSL and wireless
Transferring File Protocols
FTP - Abbreviation of File Transfer Protocol, the protocol used on the Internet for connection oriented transferring of files. Popular protocol for uploading and downloading pages
