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.

Editorial Reviews

"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."
