Amazon.com Review

Nothing's more central to the Internet than the TCP/IP protocol stack, so internetworking engineers need to know--or have access to--as much information about it as possible. That's the function of Routing TCP/IP, Volume II, an encyclopedic reference that covers pretty much every aspect of TCP/IP internetworking in deep, practical detail. This is one of the books that working experts should always have at hand, and one of the best choices for people studying for the higher-level Cisco certification examinations, especially the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) laboratory protocols. Jeff Doyle and Jennifer Carroll, both CCIEs, share their background knowledge and practical wisdom in nearly 1,000 information-dense, hardbound pages.

This book works well on a lot of levels, but its careful integration of explanations (statements of applicability and references to standards documents), case studies (usually illustrated with network diagrams), configuration details (input/output listings from Cisco routers), and practical advice (a note on why network address translation isn't much of a barrier against attackers) is key to its success. The illustrators worked overtime, as well, to link Internetwork Operating System (IOS) listings with network diagrams and thereby more effectively illustrate routing behaviors. An excellent index and troubleshooting exercises similar to those on the CCIE practical exam round out this package. --David Wall

Topics covered: How TCP/IP routing works, and how to configure the routing effects you want on Cisco routing equipment. Emphasis falls on Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP), Border Gateway Protocol 4 (BGP-4), IP multicasting, IPv6, and network address translation (NAT).

From the Back Cover

A detailed examination of exterior routing protocols and advanced IP routing issues

Routing TCP/IP, Volume II, enables you to:


* Master the operational components, configuration, and troubleshooting of BGP-4-the de facto interdomain routing protocol
* Understand the operation, configuration, and troubleshooting of NAT
* Learn how to deploy, configure, and troubleshoot IP multicast routing through an array of case studies and exercises
* Familiarize yourself with the design goals and current state of IPv6, the new generation of the IP protocol
* Implement router management through a diverse range of expert-tested methods
* Test and validate your knowledge with practical, comprehensive review questions, configuration exercises, and troubleshooting exercises
* Further your CCIE preparation while mastering advanced TCP/IP concepts

The complexities of exterior gateway protocols, including TCP connections, message states, path attributes, interior routing protocol interoperation, and setting up neighbor connections, require a comprehensive understanding of router operations in order to manage network growth. Routing TCP/IP, Volume II, provides you with the expertise necessary to understand and implement Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGP-4), multicast routing, Network Address Translation (NAT), IPv6, and effective router management techniques. Jeff Doyle's practical approach, easy-to-read format, and comprehensive topic coverage make this book an instant classic and a must-have addition to any network professional's library.

Routing TCP/IP, Volume II, expands upon the central theme of Volume I: scalability and management of network growth. Volume II moves beyond the interior gateway protocols covered in Volume I to examine both inter-autonomous system routing and more exotic routing issues such as multicasting and IPv6. This second volume follows the same informational structure used effectively in Volume I: discussing the topic fundamentals, following up with a series of configuration examples designed to show the concept in a real-world environment, and relying on tested troubleshooting measures to resolve any problems that might arise. This book helps you accomplish more than earning the highly valued CCIE number after your name; it also helps you develop the knowledge and skills that are essential to perform your job at an expert level. Whether you are pursuing CCIE certification, need to review for your CCIE recertification exam, or are just looking for expert-level advice on advanced routing issues, Routing TCP/IP, Volume II, helps you understand foundation concepts and apply best practice techniques for effective network growth and management.

I bought the book five weeks ago and have been working through it setting up the labs. The BGP info seems to be every bit as good as Sam Halabi's, the NAT section detailed, the IP multicasting very detailed and thorough and the Router Management section good. I wish Cisco provided more books that are understandable like this for CCIE study.

Format: Hardcover
This is a strong book for learning IP services. The BGP section here is well done also but Halabi's BGP book is by far the best BGP book written.
The author understands his audience. He writes with consideration for you the reader as if he WANTS you to get it. So many times you bump into books written by those who go off on tangents.
There is not a chapter in this book that isn't worth the read. It's excellent, but I want to point you, again, to the IP Services portion of this book that really will round you out as an engineer and as a CCIE candidate.
It is as informative as Volume I, it just covered different and lesser known topics but they are still topics you need to know.

Format: Hardcover
This book covers BGP in almost 300 pages. Is it better than Halabi's bible? No, you just go faster into the subject as well as on NAT, IP Multicast, IP V6 and Router Management (SNMP, Syslog, NTP, Netflow...). Doyle is always clear and chooses good examples. I would recommend it as a first and solid read on the above subjects. Then continue with Halabi's Internet Routing Architectures and Williamson's Developing IP Multicast Networks. For IP V6, NAT and Network Management there are certainly other reference texts but I don't know them...

Format: Hardcover
"Routing TCP/IP, Volume II" by Jeff Doyle and Jennifer DeHaven Carroll picks up where "Routing TCP/IP, Volume I" left off. And, like the first volume, this volume is an essential "must read" for any aspiring CCIE-candidate.

The book is divided into two sections, Exterior Gateway Protocols and Advanced IP Routing Issues. The first section provides an historical review of Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP), an introduction for Border Gateway Protocol version 4 (BGP), and finally details on configuring and troubleshooting BGP. As with the first volume, numerous configuration and troubleshooting examples and exercises are included. However, one flaw is that the student will need twelve routers to actually stage the configuration example / lab at the end of this section.

The second part, Advanced IP Routing Issues, covers a variety of topics, although Multicast received the bulk of the attention. The Multicast chapters are concise, well written, and easy to digest and understand. Other topics include Network Address Translation (NAT), IPv6, and Router Management. However, since the initial publication date (2001), Cisco support for IPv6 has matured, making the chapter here a bit outdated. In fact, the Second Edition of Volume I does a much better job of incorporating IPv6 throughout. Also, I felt the chapter on Router Management was a bit light and was left with the impression that is tossed in at the last moment as a sort of "filler".

The reader should definitely make sure that he or she is comfortable with the topics presented in "Routing TCP/IP, Volume I" before delving into this book. Concepts covered in the first volume, such as Interior Gateway Protocols (RIP, OSPF, EIGRP) and the fundamentals of route redistribution, are referenced throughout this volume.

Format: Hardcover
This book, as well as Vol.1, is definitely one of the best books on networking ever written, both in general Cisco-specific. it is not only the best resource on BGP4 but on other "esoteric" and less known protocols like PIM, MSDP and IPv6.
The content is very well-structured, all concepts are supported by numerous examples so even if one doesn't understand the subject in it's depth he or she can find an answer to a specific real-world question.
Although Routing TCP/IP Vol.2 isn't meant to be a CCIE cram book, I believe it will provide the reader with great insight and deep understanding of networking which will help one pass the CCIE lab with shining colors and become a better engineer.
In my opinion Vol 1 and 2 are the best books ever published on TCP/IP routing, both from a theoretical and practical point of view (with all due respect to Radia Perlman). Both are definitely the #1 resource for every network engineer and CCIE candidate. What the book doesn't provide is a quick answer to every question or an easy way to superficial knowledge - it requires a certain degree of discipline, concentration and time.
Exceptional work, Mr. Doyle!

It is a great book!!The incremental explaination on BGP stuff inside helps not only first learner to grasp the knowledge but also to make expert in Cisco BGP more confident in the regarding area.I would strongly recommend you to read the BGP stuff here thoroughly because it helps me to achieve my CCIE status recently.Also,other stuff inside will certainly prove to be a very big help in your career advancement as a NW engineer.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I personally feel this book is even better than Volume I. Several hundred pages are spent on BGP and Multicasting, going through details that aren't necessarily found in the more well-known books on those topics. An excellent companion to Halabi and Williamson.
The book was a major help to me in achieving my CCIE R&S. I just with Jeff would write a Security book!
