What's the difference between iFCP and iSCSI?

What's the difference between iFCP and iSCSI?

iSCSI is serial SCSI over TCP/IP. It is an independent of the Fibre Channel spec for serial SCSI. iFCP is an implementation...

of the Fibre Channel serial SCSI protocol (FCP) over Ethernet networks. I don't know if it officially supports UDP or not but it was designed to travel over IP - not necessarily TCP.
