From the Back Cover:

Practical TCP/IP is the only book you need to ensure that your networks work. With this book you learn by doing as well as reading. Split into 4 Parts, this book has a unique modular approach that facilitates in-depth and easy learning. The detailed appendices make this a desktop book you cannot be without.

Based on years of practical experience this hands-on book explains the principles of networking, and the TCP/IP protocols in depth. Covering both Linux and Windows, Practical TCP/IP is applicable to just about any network.

Skills you will learn

  • Tells you how to build a network
  • Starts with a simple two-machine network and goes onto a full network connected to the Internet with a firewall and internal routers, and DNS and e-mail servers.
  • Explains the software tools you need to diagnose problems and to understand how your network is operating
  • Explains why you would want to do things as well as how to do them
  • Includes practical troubleshooting and diagnostic techniques that you can apply just about everywhere so you can solve problems in your own network and in systems configured by others
  • Assumes that things may go wrong rather than work first time. So error messages are explained and solutions to problems found.
  • Ties together the various networking components so that the network is viewed as a whole not just disjointed pieces.

After reading this book you end up with a working network, you understand what is happening at a detailed level, the ability to diagnose and fix problems, and to identify bugs in the software you are using.

This book appeals to both beginners and experienced TCP/IP practitioners.
