    This looks to be a very good book on TCP/IP from what I have read. I read two chapters that have been placed online and both are very good. This chapter is on IPv6. It is a very good introduction to IPv6. This chapter is an introduction to the fundamentals and operation of TCP. It's one of the better explanations I've read, and by that I mean one of the easiest to understand explanations I've read.

    Based on these two chapters I would highly recommend this book for those wanting to understand the basics of networking.

    Note that the contents of the book are available here http://www.tcpipguide.com/. I have been using this site for some time, as I think it is excelent.

    My standard reference on TCP/IP has always been Stevens, but this book has the benefit of being much more up to date than that.

    This book is on my 'must buy' list!

    Harry.

    I have now bought this book.

    So far I am impressed - but to read it all will take a *long* time so I'm dipping for the immediate questions!

    But the first thought on getting it was the size. It seemed to rival our favourite book - Meyers A+ all in one!

    Hm - hang on - lets try them on the scales......

    We have a winner! The TCP/IP book is *heavier* than the A+ book by 9 oz! (Sorry - I'm old-fashioned)

    Harry.
