9780124558267: TCP/IP Clearly Explained, Third Edition

TCP/IP continues to be the most important networking protocol suite in the world--and the most successful. As the Internet continues to expand, the number of hosts using TCP/IP for networking is rapidly approaching the 100 million mark. With so many users, the need for computer and networking professionals to understand TCP/IP parallels the technology's growth. This new third edition follows the progression of TCP/IP, updating its continued relevancy, and reflecting the new developments in this core technology's evolution.
TCP/IP Clearly Explained, Third Edition provides a clear and complete introduction to the most widely used TCP/IP Protocols, in plain language that makes complicated networking concepts accessible to readers without a background in computer science. It is a comprehensive guide to all-important topics related to TCP/IP and is for anyone interested in learning how the Internet works from a nuts and bolts perspective.

* Includes all important topics related to TCP/IP and explains them in the context of actual applications that use the protocols described
* Contains clear illustrations of protocol headers and network traffic flow
* Presents increased coverage of the WWW and Web-related applications, protocols, and specifications such as HTTP, HTML, Java, and Active X

Review:

TCP/IP Clearly Explained is a well-written book that covers TCP/IP protocols, applications built on top of these protocols, and network management issues. True to its title, the prose is clear and the explanations are well-structured, starting with simple examples and building on them in order to emphasize the key points of a presentation. The examples are crafted to be just complicated enough, and no more. TCP/IP Clearly Explained offers a pleasant reading experience to anyone who is interested in learning about this protocol suite.

From the Back Cover:

In this third edition of an acclaimed text, Pete Loshin provides an excellent introduction to TCP/IP: what it is, how it works, and what it does. Following in the tradition of the previous editions, TCP/IP Clearly Explained, Third Edition offers even clearer explanations of some of the trickier aspects of TCP/IP based upon comments from readers, as well as coverage of the most recent protocol developments.

Without TCP/IP, there would be no Internet as we know it today. The TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol) suite forms the basis for all intranets, extranets, and the Internet. This protocol suite allows for complete interoperability - the ability to communicate regardless of hardware, operating system, physical location, network medium, or method of connecting to the network.

TCP/IP Clearly Explained, Third Edition introduces TCP/IP networking to anyone interested in understanding how the Internet works from a nuts-and-bolts perspective. Users at all levels will find it an invaluable introduction and reference volume. Some TCP/IP books cover technical aspects in mind-numbing clinical detail, whereas others offer only bare oversimplifications of the protocols. What makes this book unique is that it provides an accessible yet complete introduction to the concepts and practice of TCP/IP networking suitable for everyone with an interest.

This third edition offers:

  • Four new chapters covering BOOTP and DHCP, IP multicast, distributed computing, and extranets
  • Updates to reflect recent developments throughout
  • Expanded discussion of topics such as the World Wide Web protocols, Internet commerce, and Internet security
  • Some of the most up-to-date coverage of IPv6 available
