Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol is an accepted protocol transmission medium for computer-to-computer communications. This is a description of the proposed standards within Ipv6 being offered through the IPNG, the IP Next Generation working group. The book will also examine other protocols, such as DHTTP (dynamic protocol for the Web), along with new interactive applications, collaborative workgroup applications, voice integration and more. It covers client/server interaction with TCP/IP, information on security issues, including network security, firewalls, and tools to monitor. In keeping with the previous editions, the "rules" of communication and the "buzzwords" are described in simple and lay terms.

TCP/IP for Dummies is for anyone who wants to explore what really makes the Web tick. In a lighthearted style, the authors explain the basics of TCP/IP and other technologies. They discuss what TCP/IP can do in the context of various types of networks such as LANs and WANs and briefly introduce the reader to concepts such as firewalls and client/server applications.
The book continues with tutorials on SMTP--the standard mail protocol of the Net--and other bedrock protocols such as FTP, Telnet, and DNS in easy-to-understand language that demystifies the oodles of acronyms. Information follows on how IP addresses, IPv6, dial-up networking, and thin clients work.
In the Part of Tens section--a hallmark of the Dummies series--the authors go wild with lists such as Ten Reasons to use TCP/IP, Ten Frequently Asked Questions about TCP/IP, and Ten RFCs Worth Tasting. If you want to leave the safe world of your browser to go down the technical route, TCP/IP for Dummies offers an easy read and an informative presentation. --Stephen W. PlainFrom the Back Cover:
