More than just a "cram guide," this is a complete, expert guide to planning, implementing, managing, and troubleshooting even the largest Windows NT-based TCP/IP networks. You'll find comprehensive coverage of every key Microsoft TCP/IP tool, service, and protocol. Understand the key IP addressing and routing skills and technologies at the heart of every TCP/IP network, including extensive coverage of subnetting and supernetting. Next, master Microsoft's implementations of DHCP and DNS, along with the Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) for Windows networks. From planning through troubleshooting, for both Windows-oriented and heterogeneous environments, this is the most comprehensive real-world Microsoft TCP/IP resource you can find.
