This text covers the complex and mysterious world of routing protocols and configuration. It explores and explains from a practical point of view the devices that allow the Internet to function, i.e. routers and switches. Categories of routing protocols like vector distance, link state, vector path and the specific implementations of these protocols like RIP, OSPF and BGP are discussed and explained in detail. Select products of market leaders in the field are reviewed with criteria for product selection, as well as practical installation and configuration tips. Included with the book is a CD-ROM.

This book was born out of my desire for an understanable and a humorous reference on routers and routing principles--the plumbing of the Internet. Having thought dozens of classes on the subject of internetworking I had the opportunity to listen to and to answer many questions on the subject of routing. Some of the analogies and explanations of the routing principles stem from my interactions with my students-- who are always my best teachers. Many people have contributed to this work by granting me interviews and providing technical information about the products referenced in this book. I thank them all again. Writing it was fun, but also painful at times. Hope you enjoy it and share your comments with me.About the Author:
