The TCP/IP family of protocols have become the de facto standard in the world of networking, are found in virtually all computer communication systems, and form the basis of today's Internet. TCP/IP Essentials is a hands-on guide to TCP/IP technologies, and shows how the protocols are implemented in practice. The book contains a series of extensively tested laboratory experiments that span the various elements of protocol definition and behavior. Topics covered include bridges, routers, LANs, static and dynamic routing, multicast and realtime service, and network management and security. The experiments are described in a Linux environment, with parallel notes on Solaris implementation. The book includes many homework exercises, and supplementary material for instructors is available. The book is aimed at students of electrical and computer engineering and students of computer science taking courses in networking. It is also an ideal guide for engineers studying for networking certifications.

'... the underlying theory is presented at a level sufficient to understand how something works, without descending into unnecessary detail or patronizing through oversimplification ... this book gives a concise and refreshingly approachable description of Internet-related networking topics. Taken as a complete package, the hands-on approach results in a more thorough grasp of the concepts involved than would usually be possible with a dry academic text. Overall, this is both a useful guide and a handy, high-level reference.' IEE Communications Engineer
