About the Authors
  • The TCP/IP family of protocols has become the de facto standard in the world of networking. Found in virtually all computer communication systems, they form the basis of today's Internet. Including a series of carefully designed laboratory experiments that span the various elements of protocol definition and behavior, this book is a hands-on guide to TCP/IP technologies. The experiments are described in a Linux environment, with parallel notes on Solaris implementation. The book includes homework exercises, and supplementary material for instructors is available. It is aimed at electrical engineering and computer science students, and will also be valuable for engineers studying for networking certifications.

    • Provides a hands-on guide to how TCP/IP protocols work in practice, covering all aspects of networking, from link level to applications
    • Examples are in the Linux environment, with parallel notes on Solaris implementation
    • Support material available for instructors

    Reviews & endorsements

    “ [Five stars] The underlying theory is presented at a level sufficient to understand how something works, without descending into unnecessary detail or patronizing through oversimplification …this book gives a concise and refreshingly approachable description of Internet-related networking topics…The hands-on approach results in a more thorough grasp of the concepts involved than would usually be possible with a dry academic text. Overall, this is both a useful guide and a handy, high-level reference.”
    Russell J. Haines, IEE Communications Engineer

    "This book reveals all. It does so in a logical, straightforward, easy - to - read manner. The book is not simply a dry textbook but rather, as the title suggests, a lab - based approach to understanding networks, Internet protocols and data transmission."
    Rob Harle for Leonardo Reviews
