The only network protocol reference of its type, this handbook details the most common protocols currently in use by most networked sites. Using a unique one-chapter-per-protocol format, the Handbook covers Transport Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), Xerox Network System (XNS), Internet Packet Exchange/Sequence Packet Exchange (IPX/SPX), DECnet Phase IV/Local Area Transport (LAT), IEEE 802.2, and Open Systems Interconnection (OS/GOSIP).
