TCP/IP Tutorial and Technical Overview offers uniquely detailed coverage of all aspects of TCP/IP architecture, protocols, and product implementations. This new edition includes thorough coverage of such new technologies as multimedia, virtual private networks, differentiated services, and IPv6. In addition, it retains the redbooks' special focus on IBM systems, with a view toward using them in heterogeneous network solutions. Like other redbooks, TCP/IP Tutorial and Technical Overview is written by a group of experts from IBM's ITSO. These practicing engineers from around the world work hands-on with new products and systems in the development phase, giving them a wealth of practical expertise they can pass on to you.
