15 Reviews
This best-selling, conceptual introduction to TCP/IP internetworking protocols interweaves a clear discussion of fundamentals with the latest technologies. Leading author Doug Comer covers layering and shows how all protocols in the TCP/IP suite fit into the five-layer model. With a new focus on CIDR addressing, this revision addresses MPLS and IP switching technology, traffic scheduling, VOIP, Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN), and Selective ACKnowledgement (SACK). Includes coverage of Voice and Video Over IP (RTP), IP coverage, a discussion of routing architectures, examination of Internet application services such as domain name system (DNS), electronic mail (SMTP, MIME), file transfer and access (FTP, TFTP, NFS), remote login (TELNET, rlogin), and network management (SNMP, MIB, ANS.I), a description of mobile IP, and private network interconnections such as NAT and VPN. The new edition includes updates to every chapter, updated examples, a new chapter on MPLS and IP switching technology and an expanded TCP description that featuers Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN) and Selective ACKnowledgement (SACK). For network and web designers, implementers, and administrators, and for anyone interested in how the Internet works.

About the author (2006)

Douglas Comer , Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at Purdue University, is an internationally recognized expert on computer networking, the TCP/IP protocols, and the Internet. The author of numerous refereed articles and textbooks, he is a pioneer in the development of curriculum and laboratories for research and education.

A prolific author, Comer's popular books have been translated into 16 languages, and are used in computer science, engineering, and business departments around the world. His landmark three-volume series Internetworking With TCP/IP revolutionized networking and network education. His textbooks and innovative laboratory manuals have shaped, and continue to shape, graduate and undergraduate curricula.

The accuracy and insight of Dr. Comer's books reflect his extensive background in computer systems. His research spans both hardware and software. He has created a complete operating system, written device drivers, and implemented network protocol software for conventional computers as well as network processors. The resulting software has been used by industry in a variety of products.

Comer has created and teaches courses on network protocols and computer technologies for a variety of audiences, including courses for engineers as well as academic audiences. His innovative educational laboratories allow him and his students to design and implement working prototypes of large, complex systems, and measure the performance of the resulting prototypes. He continues to teach at industries, universities, and conferences around the world. In addition, Comer consults for industry on the design of computer networks and systems.

For over 15 years, Professor Comer has served as editor-in-chief of the research journal Software-Practice and Experience. He is a fellow of the ACM, a Fellow of the Purdue Teaching Academy, and a recipient of numerous awards, including a Usenix Lifetime Achievement award
