9780130319968: Internetworking with TCP/IP, Vol 2: Design, Implementation, and Internals (4th Edition)

In this book, Douglas E. Comer -- one of the world's leading TCP/IP experts -- presents comprehensive, up-to-date guidance for developing robust, C-based TCP/IP applications. This Fourth Edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the latest ANSI C standards, and to deliver in-depth coverage of CIDR addressing, CIDR route lookup, and DHCP.This fully revised and updated Fourth Edition provides in-depth coverage of developing with every major TCP/IP protocol, including TCP, IP, ICMP, IGMPv2, UDP, APR, RIP2, SNMPv3, and OSPF -- including detailed ANSI C source code. Comer introduces the challenges of TCP/IP network programming, covers key design and architectural alternatives, and presents real-world implementation techniques. Using a complete TCP/IP working model, the authors demonstrate the interactions among protocols, walk through the entire implementation process, review the internal structure of TCP/IP applications, and provide a strong platform for readers to experiment. The book contains in-depth coverage of CIDR, demonstrating techniques for reducing the size of routing tables and making more IP addresses available within organizations. It also includes a full chapter on programming DHCP to automate the configuration of desktops for Internet access.For every network programmer building Internet applications with TCP/IP.

From the Publisher:

This volume answers the question "How does application software use TCP/IP?"--focusing on the client-server paradigm, and examining algorithms for both the client and server components of a distributed program. It presents an implementation that illustrates each design and reviews several standard application protocols, using them to illustrate algorithms and implementation techniques.

From the Back Cover:


The Third Edition of this best-seller is a must for anyone working the TCP/IP suite of protocols.

The authors provide an in-depth look at individual TCP/IP protocols in light of design alternatives, implementation techniques with actual ANSI C code, and the internals of protocol software.

This book uses the widely accepted data-mark interpretation of TCP urgent data, a discussion of the consequences is included. Throughout the book the authors use a working system, which they designed and built using ANSI C, to explain the interaction among protocols, the complete implementation process, and the internal structure.

  • Reflects changes in the protocol standards and updates the example code to ANSI standard C.
  • Contains working source code in ANSI C for most protocols including TCP, IP, ICMP, IGMP, UDP, ARP, RIP, SNMP, and a significant part of OSPF.
  • Defines data structures, constants, and code for procedures and processes in ANSI standard C.
  • Provides active experimentation with a working TCP/IP implementation.
  • Implementation support for the IGMP protocol used for IP multicasting and multicast OSPF routing protocol used in applications such as audio and video multicast.
  • Unique coverage of the Open Shortest path First link-state routing protocol designed by the IETF.
  • Shows the latest interpretation of the urgent data processing.
