Clarification On Usage Of "Connection"


#1

Are “flow” and “connection” being used synonymously? I believe they are, but I’d just like to clarify this.


#2

They are similar, but sometimes used slightly differently. For example, a flow is usually refer to one direction of data transfer, while the connection is referring the whole (both) directions.
