Keep up-to-date on all the major protocols of a TCP/IP-based network -- without searching through dozens of detailed RFCs -- with this technical update. It describes the most interfaces of any single source, introduces binary and hexadecimal arithmetic, provides exclusive coverage of L2TP, and is the first to include LAN analysis screens and engineering-level detail on IPv6 routing.

Through the use of graphic illustrations and functional descriptions you learn the fundamentals of the Internet and TCP/IP protocol suite and how it works. Specifically, you will find an enhanced description of IP, ARP, RARP, and BOOTP. Also included is a revised description of FTP and an added description of HTTP.
