As the Internet continues to expand its reach, more and more users, administrators, and programmers need to learn about TCP/IP ß the core standard behind the Internet, and the dominant protocol for networks throughout the world.
Sams Teach Yourself TCP/IP in 24 Hours provides a clear and concise introduction to TCP/IP. It is accessible enough for non-technical readers, yet specific enough for technical readers who are looking for a solid foundation in TCP/IP.
This edition adds coverage of recent developments that affect TCP/IP. New topics added include: wireless networking, spam control, broadband, and peer-to-peer networking technologies.
