Windows Networking and Connectivity Guide: How to Survive in a World of Windows, Netware and DOSby Ralph R. Davis, Stephen Randy Davis
programmers writing applications software to run under Windows 3.1 and a network. They have been left largely alone to unravel the complex relationship between the sparse DOS and Windows networking functions, and industry standard network APIs like NetWare and Banyan Vines. The introduction of Windows for Workgroups and Windows NT simplifies some of the issues, but makes others even more difficult.
Windows Network Programming is the first book to clearly address the key issues regarding Windows and networks. The book looks closely at the leading network standards, including:
- Windows for Workgroups
- LAN Manager
- Windows NT
- Banyan Vines
The book is organized into two sections. Part I deals with horizontal (or distributed) applications, including client-to-client and client-to-server programs. Part 2 covers those applications that appear to execute within a single workstation, referred to as vertical applications.
Windows Network Programming will appeal to both experienced network programmers and Windows programmers wanting to write network-aware applications.
