Are you a network administrator or just a networking student who is working with TCP/IP? Well, you're in luck! Author Charles Kozierok, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that will allow anyone to obtain a deep understanding of how TCP/IP technologies really work. Kozierok, begins by covering a number of important fundamental aspects of networks, discussing how they are used, the standards that define them, and the terminology that describes them, and much more. Then, he describes the important OSI Reference Model, which is an essential tool to comprehending the function and organization of networking technologies. The author continues by presenting a high-level overview of the TCP/IP protocol suite, which will frame the more complete discussions of individual TCP/IP protocols that follow in the latter two sections of the book. In addition, the author next describes the two TCP/IP protocols that reside at the network interface layer (layer 2 of the OSI Reference Model): the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) and the Serial Line Interface Protocol (SLIP). He also describes a couple of special protocols that reside architecturally between layers 2 and 3: the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) and the Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP). Then, the author describes the IP versions 4 and 6. He continues by discussing IP-related feature and support protocols as well as IP routing protocols. In addition, the author next covers the two TCP/IP transport layer protocols, the TCP and the UDP, and related topics such as the use of TCP/IP ports. Finally, he describes the details of the many protocols and applications that occupy the upper layers in TCP/IP. The good thing about this excellent book is that it provides you with an unparalleled breadth and depth of information about TCP/IP. Needless to say, one of the ways that this book differs from the typical technical reference book is that it is a very personal work.
