This best-selling, conceptual introduction to TCP/IP internetworking protocols interweaves a clear discussion of fundamentals with the latest technologies. Leading author Doug Comer covers layering and shows how all protocols in the TCP/IP suite fit into the five-layer model. With a new focus on CIDR addressing, this revision addresses MPLS and IP switching technology, traffic scheduling, VOIP, Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN), and Selective ACKnowledgement (SACK). Includes coverage of Voice and Video Over IP (RTP), IP coverage, a discussion of routing architectures, examination of Internet application services such as domain name system (DNS), electronic mail (SMTP, MIME), file transfer and access (FTP, TFTP, NFS), remote login (TELNET, rlogin), and network management (SNMP, MIB, ANS.I), a description of mobile IP, and private network interconnections such as NAT and VPN. The new edition includes updates to every chapter, updated examples, a new chapter on MPLS and IP switching technology and an expanded TCP description that featuers Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN) and Selective ACKnowledgement (SACK). For network and web designers, implementers, and administrators, and for anyone interested in how the Internet works.

Meet the Author

Douglas Comer , Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at Purdue University, is an internationally recognized expert on computer networking, the TCP/IP protocols, and the Internet. The author of numerous refereed articles and textbooks, he is a pioneer in the development of curriculum and laboratories for research and education.

A prolific author, Comer's popular books have been translated into 16 languages, and are used in computer science, engineering, and business departments around the world. His landmark three-volume series Internetworking With TCP/IP revolutionized networking and network education. His textbooks and innovative laboratory manuals have shaped, and continue to shape, graduate and undergraduate curricula.

The accuracy and insight of Dr. Comer's books reflect his extensive background in computer systems. His research spans both hardware and software. He has created a complete operating system, written device drivers, and implemented network protocol software for conventional computers as well as network processors. The resulting software has been used by industry in a variety of products.

Comer has created and teaches courses on network protocols and computer technologies for a variety of audiences, including courses for engineers as well as academic audiences. His innovative educational laboratories allow him and his students to design and implement working prototypes of large, complex systems, and measure the performance of the resulting prototypes. He continues to teach at industries, universities, and conferences around the world. In addition, Comer consults for industry on the design of computer networks and systems.

For over 15 years, Professor Comer has served as editor-in-chief of the research journal Software-Practice and Experience. He is a fellow of the ACM, a Fellow of the Purdue Teaching Academy, and a recipient of numerous awards, including a Usenix Lifetime Achievement award

    explains NAT, VOIP, QoS, IPv6

    It was through an earlier version [2nd edition], that I got my first detailed look at the internet structure. It is good to see that Comer continues his decades-long best selling text. It is aimed at engineers and programmers who have to understand and use and possibly develop applications that will run atop the internet. Firstly, as with the earlier editions, there are comprehensive explanations of what the Internet Protocol means. Thence for the User Datagram Protocol and the Transmission Control Protocol. To most internet or web users, these are really meaningless terms. Not to you, after you have gone through this book. So, as a crucial example, you will understand the difference between UDP and TCP. And what the format of a TCP segment contains, like the source and destination ports and sequence numbers. Plus the TCP 3 way handshake protocol. The above has been well established and stable for over 15 years. But Comer also brings in newer material. Like the Network Address Translation. A nifty kludge that can get around a shortage of IP addresses. Or, it can be used to furnish more privacy for machines inside a private net, that still need to communicate with the wider internet. Even newer issues include VOIP. Leading into an analysis of the difficult real time problems of audio Quality of Service. The recent rise of Internet Telephony centres around successful resolution of these matters. Finally, Comer concludes with a synopsis of the next generation of the internet - 128 bit addressing under IPv6. And how, apart from the vastly increased addressing, it promises to enable such features as protocol extensions and more elaborate address hierarchies. However, he prudently refrains from suggesting when IPv6 will be fully rolled out.
