Unix Networking Clearly Explained is a complete introduction and tutorial to the use and implementation of the networking aspect of the Unix operating system. Unix is known as one of the most flexible operating systems - and one of the most difficult to master.

Unix has become the foremost operating systems platform for network servers and workstations. Many of the tools currently used for Internet access were originally designed on Unix. Unix Networking Clearly Explained thoroughly explores the Unix tools used for network and Internet access, focusing on end-user client software. In his second Unix book in the Clearly Explained series, Petersen introduces the complete range of Unix networking capabilities, including:

  • Detailed explanations of the Unix mailers mailx, Elm, MH, and Pine
  • Unix communications tools such as uuencode, write, talk, and biff
  • The different capabilities of the Usenet newsreaders rn, trn, tin, and nn
  • In-depth discussions of Unix Internet access tools Telnet, ftp, archie, and gopher
  • Remote access operations for Unix systems on TCP/IP and UUCP networks

Unix Networking Clearly Explained also offers concise tables and figures of commands, options, and features for each mailer, newsreader, and Internet application, allowing you, the reader, to easily explore the many aspects of Unix networking as in-depth as needed. Petersen's thorough coverage provides you with a working model of the major Unix networking applications, from which you can easily gain understanding and knowledge of Unix networking. Once you know Unix networking, you will find it intriguingly powerful and versatile.

"...covers electronic mail, mailx, Unix mailers (elm, Pine, and MH)...discusses Usenet, Newsreaders, Internet addressing, and communications...presents Internet access, Internet information services, TCP/IP remote tools, etc."
