Guide to TCP/IP: IPv6 and IPv4 introduces students to the concepts, terminology, protocols, and services that the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) suite uses to make the Internet work. This text stimulates hands-on skills development by not only describing TCP/IP capabilities, but also by encouraging students to interact with protocols. It provides the troubleshooting knowledge and tools that network administrators and analysts need to keep their systems running smoothly. Guide to TCP/IP covers topics ranging from traffic analysis and characterization, to error detection, security analysis and more. Both IPv6 and IPv4 are covered in detail.
