Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

TCP/IP is usually a subject for network professionals and hardcore geeks. While the acronym (which stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) gets thrown around a lot, most nontechnical users don't realize that it's the suite of protocols used to connect computers to the Internet. Timothy Parker explains the basics of TCP/IP, goes on to the protocols and services it provides, shows how to implement it in various environments, and then explains how it is used on the net. There are also chapters on administering a TCP/IP network, maintenance, and troubleshooting. Not for the faint of heart or the average user, this is a book for those who want to gain advanced communications knowledge and experience. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book covers the basics of TCP/IP as well as many related internet services, how they interact, and how to set them up on different operating system. I keep taking this of the shelf again and again more than a year after I bought it. A must have reference guide for anyone doing a little more TCP/IP than what comes on the ISP's setup disk.

While some of the content is okay, I often felt the information was incomplete. The chapter on LDAP is literally incomprehensible. After trying to read the LDAP chapter I completely gave up on the book and will try to find something better.

Non-technical look at TCP/IP that is great. I had a Windows and Linux network running in less thgan a day and I even know what's going on. Removed a lot of the technobable I see in other TCP/IP books. This book deserves a second edition.

This book is a good introduction for TCP/IP networks. Although it doesn't go deep in the technology, it has a good overview and it is good for solving doubts. Recommended for beginners.

If networking is what you are looking to make a career out of, then you need to have a great understanding of TCP/IP and the entire protocol suite. You also need to have a reference manual that will provide this information to you.

This book is just short of the right book. One thing I found was some of the information was a little short of complete and a few typo errors in the book as well. I also found that the book states the level to be intermediate to advanced and I think it is more of the beginner to intermediate.

I found that the book does give a good overall explanation of TCP/IP and that there were some topics like firewalls that cover only about 9 pages and I think the information could have been expanded.

Overall the book does provide good information for the A+, Net+, CCNA and other first level exam certifications. I can also say that this book was great for a TCP/IP seminar I recently gave, but still some improvements are need to make this the go to manual.
