This text provides a comprehensive look at computer networking from the point of view of the network administrator. It guides readers from an entry-level knowledge in computer networks to advanced concepts in Ethernet networks, router configuration, TCP/IP networks, local, campus, and wide area network configuration, network security, optical networks, Voice over IP, and industrial networks. Information and extensive examples on the Windows server configuration and system configuration for the Linux operating system are also included. A complete chapter is devoted to protecting and securing a network from potential network attacks. Topics include denial of service attacks, firewalls, intrusion detection, password cracking, packet sniffing, and analyzing unsecured data packets. Other key network security issues, such as configuring router access lists, configuring a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection, and securing wireless networks, are also covered. Router configuration is examined, ranging from an introduction to router configuration to configuring multiple routing protocols for Intranet and Internet data traffic. Routing protocols key to basic network operations are examined, including static, RIP, IGRf, OSPF, EIGRP, and BGP The discussions on routing protocols are accompanied with in-depth steps for configuring the router to run the protocol, verify operation, and troubleshoot the router. Key Pedagogical Features NET CHALLENGE SOFTWARE provides a simulated, hands-on experience in configuring routers. Exercises provided in the text and on the CD challenge readers to undertake certain router/ network configuration tasks. The software has the look and feel of actually being connected to the router's console port. PROTOCOL ANALYZER SOFTWARE included with the text uses the Finisar Surveyor Demo. Examples of using the software to analyze data traffic are included throughout the text. ACCOMPANYING CD-ROM includes the Finisar Surveyor Demo software and captured data traffic used in the text, which provides readers with the opportunity to capture data traffic on their own network. CONFIGURING, ANALYZING, or TROUBLESHOOTING sections are included with each chapter to guide the reader through advanced techniques in networking.OBJECTIVES and INTRODUCTION at the beginning of each chapter clearly outline specific goals for the reader.EXTENSIVE PROBLEM SETS, SUMMARIES, and QUESTIONS AND PROBLEMS (including Critical Thinking questions) are found at the end of each chapter. KEY TERMS and their definitions are highlighted in the margins to foster inquisitiveness and ensure retention.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
This book provides a comprehensive look at computer networking from the point of view of the network administrator. It guides readers from an entry-level knowledge in computer networks to advanced concepts in Ethernet networks, muter configuration, TCP/IP networks, local, campus, and wide area network configuration, network security, optical networks, Voice over IP, and industrial networks. After covering the entire text, readers will have gained a solid knowledge base in computer networks.
In my years of teaching, I have observed that technology students prefer to learn "how to swim" after they have gotten wet and taken in a little water. Then, they are ready for more challenges. Show the students the technology, how it is used, and why and they will take the applications of the technology to the next level. Allowing them to experiment with the technology helps them to develop a greater understanding. This book does just that.
ORGANIZATION OF THE TEXT
This text is designed to cover two semesters. The recommended chapters for the first semester are Chapters 1 to 8. Throughout the semester, the students will gain an appreciation of how basic computer networks and related hardware are interconnected to form a network. This involves understanding the concepts and issues of twisted pair cable, interconnecting LANs, configuring TCP/IP, subnet masking, basic muter configuration, and configuring routing protocols.
Chapters 9 to 13 are recommended for the second semester and cover wide area networking, configuring and managing the campus network, network security, wireless LANs, and optical networks. The instructor can choose from the following topics to complete the semester: installing and configuring Windows 2003/2000 network server, Voice over IP, Linux configuration, and industrial networks.
