Teach Yourself TCP/IP in 24 Hours
In just 24 sessions of one hour or less, you’ll discover how to implement, monitor, and manage a TCP/IP network – even the latest cloud-based and IPv6 networks.
Using this book’s straightforward, step-by-step approach, you’ll uncover the essentials of TCP/IP and put that knowledge to work through practical examples.
Each lesson builds on what you’ve already learned, giving you a strong real-world foundation for success. Expert author and network engineer Joe Casad guides you from the basics to advanced techniques – including TCP/IP’s architecture, layers, subnetting, CIDR, routing, security, utilities, remote access, web services, streaming, and much more.
If you’re looking for a smart, concise introduction to the protocols that power the Internet, start your clock and look inside. Teach Yourself TCP/IP in 24 Hours is your guide to the secrets of TCP/IP.
