This work provides the nitty-gritty details of TCP, IP and UDP. It shows that many network problems with protocols can be debugged by working at the lowest levels (looking at all the bits and travelling back and forth on the wire). The guide explains what those bits are and how to interpret them. A CD-ROM is included with the book; it contains Shomiti's "Surveyor Lite", a packet analyzer that runs on Win32 systems, plus the original RFCs, for reference. Together, this package includes all that system and network administrators should need to troubleshoot their networks.

Industry Reviews

'This book moves beyond the older O'Reilly book TCP/IP Network Administration, and covers the protocols in much more depth. It will be a useful book to refer to, but I suspect will be one which lives mostly upon the bookshelf, only coming out occasionally during a troubleshooting session.' - Joel Smith, news@UK, June 2000 '...the author does make the point that this book is not intended for absolute TCP/IP newcomers. If you don't know what a subnet mask is, or how it relates to the maximum number on a particular network, then you should probably read something else first. But if you understand a little about TCP/IP and you want to deepen your understanding and appreciation of how the PCs in a network communicate with one another, then you will find this book a fascinating read.' - Dave Jewell, Developers Review, June 2000.
