From the Back Cover

This is the Linux/POSIX Sockets Version of Volume III from the most popular TCP/IP Internetworking series ever published. Volume III answers the question, "How does application software us TCP/IP to communicate over an Internet?" The Linux/POSIX Sockets Version is organized for easy reading. First the text explains the client-server paradigm and socket API that application programs use for network communication. It then discusses how the basic tools can be used to create servers, emphasizing practical designs and techniques that are important to programmers.

FEATURES

  • Practical client-server design principles and techniques are presented with the strengths and weaknesses of each approach.
  • The most complete coverage of server technology shows how to select among server algorithms and build an advanced server appropriate for each application.
  • A wide range of server designs applicable to the WWW and other applications are discussed.
  • Chapters on streaming technology and the Real-Time Transport Protocol explain how to transfer audio and video over the Internet.
  • Each client-server design is illustrated with a detailed example implementation that has been tested under Linus; all code from the book is available on a Web site.
  • The book examines powerful techniques such as application gateways and tunneling.
  • It includes the clearest explanation of remote procedure call (RCP) and how it can be used to construct distributed programs.

About the Author

DR. DOUGLAS COMER is an internationally recognized expert on TCP/IP protocols and the Internet. One of the researchers who contributed to the Internet as it was being formed in the late 1970s and 1980s; he was a member of the Internet Architecture Board, the group responsible for guiding the Internet's development. He was also chairman of the CSNET technical committee and a member of the CSNET executive committee.

Comer consults for companies on the design and implementation of networks, and gives professional seminars on TCP/IP and internetworking to both technical and nontechnical audiences around the world. His operating system, Xinu, and implementation of TCP/IP protocols are documented in his books, and used in commercial products.

Comer is a professor of computer science at Purdue University, where he teaches courses and does research on computer networking, internetworking, and operating systems. In addition to writing a series of best-selling technical books, he serves as the North American editor of the journal Software — Practice and Experience. Comer is a Fellow of the ACM.

DAVID STEVENS received his BS (1985) and MS (1993) in Computer Science from Purdue University. He has been a UNIX systems programmer working primarily on BSD UNIX kernels since 1983. He has done implementations of most of the Internet Protocol Suite and co-authored several Computer Science textbooks with Dr. Comer. His areas of professional interest are operating systems, computer networking, and large-scale software systems design.

In recent years, Stevens has worked in the area of scalable networking on high-performance multiprocessor systems for Sequent Computer Systems and the IBM Corporation. He is a member of the ACM and IEEE.

44 of 45 people found the following review helpful By Kaichuan He on September 30, 2000
Format: Paperback
If you are a linux lover and want to dig into client/server (socket) programming , this book is a good choice.
Compared with Steven's Unix Network Programming, this book is more simply and clearly written. Not like Steven who is an expert in explaining details, Comer is good at giving a sound explanation of the network programming principle both in theory and in practice. You will find nice "Algorithm" part in many of the examples which is a good abstraction of the general problem. So after the reading you will feel comfortable because of the gain in not only knowledge but also the kind of insight you could use toward other problems. As a distinguished professor in computer science, Comer spells out the single word of engineering ,"Simplicity is beauty", again by presenting this clearly written TCP/IP programming book.
Also some most exciting stuff like RTP (realtime transport protocol), Web server programming models are also included in this latest edition of his Vol 3. And as you expected, the full source code of all the chapters is available online.
