Multiple Connections per Session (MC/S) means using multiple communication paths in a single session ("I_T Nexus"). Architectural session command ordering is preserved across those communication paths.



Multiple iSCSI connections per iSCSI session (MC/S) means creating multiple communication paths across TCP, SCTP or iSER & RCaP connections. Session-wide command (CmdSN defined) ordering is preserved per RFC 3720 to ensure in-order delivery of tasks from an SCSI Initiator Port to an SCSI Target Port as defined by the SCSI Architecture Model, in which iSCSI provides the SCSI transport.
