In-depth explanations of networking and TCP/IP protocols simplify the process of learning to build, maintain, and troubleshoot networks in this hands-on technology guide. Covering both Linux and Windows, this book is applicable to almost any network, and includes visual information in the form of diagrams and screenshots, making ideas easier to understand. A reprint of the 2003 edition, this thorough reference also explains how to easily build small test networks to practice on and includes troubleshooting information throughout to help users solve complex problems with a deep understanding of the concepts. A focus on what users will need to know in their day-to-day work keeps the range of topics narrow while many detailed appendices provide extra insight into broader issues.
From the Back Cover:

Based on years of practical experience this hands-on book explains the principles of networking, and the TCP/IP protocols in depth. Covering both Linux and Windows, Practical TCP/IP is applicable to just about any network.
Skills you will learnTells you how to build a networkStarts with a simple two-machine network and goes onto a full network connected to the Internet with a firewall and internal routers, and DNS and e-mail servers.Explains the software tools you need to diagnose problems and to understand how your network is operatingExplains why you would want to do things as well as how to do themIncludes practical troubleshooting and diagnostic techniques that you can apply just about everywhere so you can solve problems in your own network and in systems configured by othersAssumes that things may go wrong rather than work first time. So error messages are explained and solutions to problems found. Ties together the various networking components so that the network is viewed as a whole not just disjointed pieces.
After reading this book you end up with a working network, you understand what is happening at a detailed level, the ability to diagnose and fix problems, and to identify bugs in the software you are using.
This book appeals to both beginners and experienced TCP/IP practitioners.
