There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Especially helpful are the "Real World" sections scattered throughout the book. These show actual TMG problems resolved and their underlying causes. For example, I was having a problem with IP Spoofing. Pp. 596-7 describe the problem in detail and how to resolve it. Another nice feature is chapter 33 on using Network Monitor 3 for Troubleshooting TMG.
While Microsoft Technet and the TMG built in help are somewhat helpful, I needed to know the how and why of the systems features. The authors' explanation of network protocols in conjunctin with TMG also help.
I recommend this book for any person planning to implement TMG. The book will help you plan properly and get the most out of the system. It is also helpful for troubleshooting.
The only strikes against it...
It is dry, as you would expect from most technical manuals. There is none of the humor of Mark Minasi or the exuberance of Tom Shinder's writing.
I have come across a couple items that I think are incorrect due to the book having been written before TMG 2010 was actually released. Microsoft Press has a section on their website for updates to books, but as of my writing this, no corrections have been posted.
Some of the concepts in here could probably use a little more thorough explanation (for me it was NLB). But all in all, a well done book. At this point in time, I would consider this a must-purchase if you are going to use TMG 2010.
I would suggest this book is for the more experienced user and for those who want to learn and come to understand what makes this software tick and the principles that drive it.
If you are looking for a quickie setup guide then this will not do it for you.
This books' weakness is lack of detail in describing how to set up and configure TMG up from scratch.
I am very pleased with the book.
Congratulations to the authors, who are renowned professionals worldwide, making this book a best seller highly recommended.
