TCP/IP Network Administration, 2nd Edition is a complete guide to setting up and running a TCP/IP network for administrators of networks of systems or users of home systems that access the Internet. It starts with the fundamentals: what the protocols do and how they work, how addresses and routing are used to move data through the network, and how to set up your network connection.

Beyond basic setup, this new second edition discusses advanced routing protocols (RIPv2, OSPF, and BGP) and the gated software package that implements them. It also provides a tutorial on how to configure important network services, including PPP, SLIP, sendmail, Domain Name Service (DNS), BOOTP and DHCP configuration servers, and some simple setups for NIS and NFS. There are also chapters on troubleshooting and security. In addition, this book is a command and syntax reference for several important packages, including pppd, dip, gated, named, dhcpd, and sendmail.

TCP/IP Network Administration, 2nd Edition Review

By chris

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media TCP/IP Network Administration, 2nd Edition:

Prior to reading this book I did not have any knowledge of TCP/IP.

After I finished the book, the concepts became clear. If you are newbie and want to really understand the foundation of TCP/IP, read this book twice.
