These nodes can be arbitrarily located and are free to move randomly at any given time, thus allowing network topology and interconnections between nodes to change rapidly and unpredictably. Transmission control protocol provides reliability, end-to-end congestion control mechanism, byte stream transport mechanism, flow control, and congestion control. There has been significant research activity over the past year into performance of such networks with the view to develop more efficient and robust TCP variants. so over aim is to find best TCP variants in Mobile Adhoc Networks.
