Presentation is that layer that takes care of compression and encryption/translation of the data.

 

Can layer 6 be skipped allowing layer 5 to talk to layer 7? Why?

The presentation layer (Layer 6) is responsible for the compression and encryption of data.

The presentation layer in the OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) model is responsible for encrypting data and compressing data. You can read more about it [HERE] www.dummies.com. The outbound server traffic, presentation layer, sends data that is encrypted and then, on the other end of the connection, is decrypted and sent to the application layer in the OSI model.

If you'd like a straight forward answer, you can find it here on Microsoft Virtual Academy.
