protocol control block (PCB)

In transport protocols, the Protocol Control Block (PCB) specifies the structure in which the information about the sockets is defined. Each socket has a Protocol Control Block defined in its structure. All Control Blocks are kept in a connection list for packet distribution. For connections via the TCP protocol, the connection parameters are stored in the Protocol Transport Block.
