Unix Networking Clearly Explained from Morgan Kauffman is a beginner's guide to using the Internet from a Unix platform--almost. Petersen is a lecturer in C Programming and Unix courses at the University of California and his style is, as the title suggests, clear, if perfunctory. He clearly and concisely explains how to use Unix applications such as Elm, Pine, trn, tin, telnet, Archie, WAIS and Gopher. The advice is equally applicable to intranets and networks (other than the Internet) that employ TCP/IP or UUCP. The emphasis is most definitely on client applications, rather than how to set up a Unix box to serve information. Chapter 16 does cover remote access, but if daemons are your thing, look elsewhere. -- Josh SmithAbout the Author:
