"A good book to get to grips with TCP/IP, providing good foundations." - Jon Kent, Linux Format, October 2002
About the Author
Craig Hunt has worked with computer systems for the last twenty years, including a stint with the federal government as both a programmer and systems programmer. He joined Honeywell to work on the WWMCCS network in the days before TCP/IP, back when the network used NCP. After Honeywell, Craig went to work for the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He's still there today and is currently the leader of the Network Engineering Group. Craig is the author of TCP/IP Network Administration and other O'Reilly books.

It does not teach TCP/IP from a simplistic approach--telling you only what you need to know and leaving you begging for more. It lays a ground work based upon the actual theory of these protocols and how they were developed and the thinking that was involved in their creation.
From there, it takes you step by step through the layers of the protocols and presents everything that most people would need to know--even more than they would need to know.
Especially enlightening were the chapters on IPv6--the next generation of the IP protocol, and the chapter covering subnetting.
Overall, if you need the one book to explain TCP/IP and the "ins-and-outs" of these networking protocols, look no further.
This book has all you'll need.
This book is packed with useless references: For instance, the reference of RFC, the protocol that was never used like IPV5.
The Book is really difficult to read as well.
There is no ONE example of TCP/IP packet in this book.
There are also subjects that have nothing to do with TCP IP like bind / sendmail. Read the table of content and you will see what i mean.
I was introduced to this book for a UNIX Network Administration course, and from this I was able to really flesh out core TCP/IP concepts as well as play with services like DHCP and DNS, which are essential pieces for a Windows Active Directory environment. Using this book I was able to dabble with other services like NFS and SAMBA from a variety of systems ranging from Mac OS X to Solaris x86 to Linux to Windows XP...
I don't have any complaints, but rather some requests for future editions. I wish there was some coverage of IPSec and Kerberos in Chapter 12 "Network Security". I think Chapter 9 "Local Netowrk Services" could be expanded, as some topics are sparsely covered and there is no mention of printing technologies like IPP or CUPS. I do wish there was more coverage of the raw SMTP protocol and related technologies of POP, IMAP, and LDAP and maybe even mail servers like Exim and Postfix. However, don't touch that sendmail chapter (Chapter 10), as this coverage is so very excellent; other books go off on the deep end are far way too complex to get started.
