Overview

This book is the Windows Server version of the classic TCP/IP Network Administration. Like the book that inspired it, Windows Server 2003 Network Administration provides an overview of the essential TCP/IP protocols, and explains how to properly manage and configure the services based on these protocols. Any skilled network administrator knows that understanding how things work is as important as knowing how things are done. This book is the essential guide to both, containing everything a network administrator needs to exchange information via the Internet, and to build effective reliable networks.

This must-read guide is divided into three distinct sections: fundamental concepts, tutorial, and reference. The first three chapters are a basic discussion of the network protocols and services. This discussion provides the fundamental concepts necessary to understand the rest of the book. The remaining chapters provide a how-to tutorial for planning, installing and configuring various important network services. The book concludes with three appendixes that are technical references for various configuration options. Content specifics include how to:

  • Install, configure, and manage a Microsoft DNS and Windows DHCP server
  • Control remote communications with Microsoft RRAS software
  • Protect hosts with Internet Connection Firewalls
  • Configure Internet and Intranet Web services with IIS
  • Design proper security into your network
  • Troubleshoot the network when problems develop

After you've turned the final page of Windows Server 2003 Network Administration, you'll not only understand how to network, but also why it needs to be done.

    VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Do you need to configure a network service on a Windows server? If you do, then this book is for you! Authors Craig Hunt and Roberta Bragg, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that provides practical, detailed network information for the Windows system administrator. Hunt and Bragg, begin by providing you with a quick history of TCP/IP, a description of the structure of the protocol architecture, and a basic explanation of how the protocols function. Then, the authors describe addressing and how data passes through a network to reach the proper destination. They continue by discussing the relationship betwen clients and server systems, as well as the various services that are central to the function of a modern network. Next, the authors cover the basic 'client' configuration required by all systems running TCP/IP. Then, they describe how to install, configure, and maintain a Windows DHCP server. They also describe how to install, configure, and manage a Microsoft DNS server. Then, they focus on the symbiotic relationship between TCP/IP and Active Directory. The authors continue by describing how to install and configure the RRAS software that permits a Windows server to run a variety of TCP/IP routing protocols and to provide the security protocols needed to create encrypted connections. They then discuss the different implementations of the native Windows firewall. The authors also describe the installation and configuration of an IAS to provide centralized authentication, audit, and authorization services for RADIUS clients. Next, they provide the background that is necessary to understand, install, and configure IPSec. Then, the authors describe how to install, configure, and manage the Internet Information Server software. They also describe how to design proper security into your network and how to understand the overall security framework within which the network resides. Finally, the authors tell you what to do when something goes wrong. This most excellent book is about building and maintaining your own network based on Windows servers. Furthermore, this dynamic book strives to find the correct balance of theory and practice, so that you understand what needs to be done and why it is done.
