English term or phrase: handshaking
Definition from Javvin Technologies, Inc.:
In the context of computers, handshaking indicates hardware or software to establish or maintain two machines or programs in synchronisation. Handshaking often requires the exchange of messages or packets of data between two systems. Hardware handshaking signals between two computers which are carried by voltage levels or pulses on wires. There are many handshaking protocols for software handshaking. Basically, the handshaking protocol send a "hello" message to the receiving system and get a "ok" responce. When the communication between the two systems finished, a "finish" message should be send and confirmed by both systems.

Example sentence(s):
  • Once the address of another servent on the network is obtained, a TCP/IP connection to the servent is created, and a handshaking sequence is initiated. Lime Wire
  • GFI Network Server Monitor can check NNTP news servers by starting a handshake connection on the remote TCP port (normally port 119). By handshaking, GFI Network Server Monitor can verify that the remote server's NNTP protocol is online and functional. GFI Software
  • A handshaking protocol is also used to ensure the logical ordering in data communication between the modules, where we have adopted bit-serial architecture to reduce the communication costs in handshaking. One issues in the bit-serial handshaking (BSHS) system is the synchronization of the input data when the module has multiple input ports. cat.inist.fr
