TCP/IP is available as a standard protocol included with all Windows operating systems and is installed by default in Windows 2000. IP Solutions for Windows 2000 focuses on Microsoft's implementation of TCP/IP, DHCP, WINS, and DNS in Windows 2000. It discusses guidelines for planning, testing, and implementing substantial changes such as the setup or migration of a Windows 2000 TCP/IP network. This is the one book that focuses on the tools and techniques for implementing and working with Windows 2000 TCP/IP connectivity.
As the community of administrators using Microsoft TCP/IP matures, your need for reliable, technically focused information will increase. This publication provides real-world implementation advice using the latest TCP/IP advances, approaching these topics from the perspective of the true networking professional. IP Solutions for Windows 2000 cuts through the complexities and provides the most informative and complex reference book on Windows-based TCP/IP topics. This book is a tutorial-reference hybrid, focusing on how Microsoft TCP/IP works, using practical examples. Concepts essential to TCP/IP administration will be explained thoroughly, then related to the practical use of Microsoft TCP/IP in a serious network environment. This book begins with coverage of TCP/IP architecture and advanced installation and configuration issues, then moves on to cover routing with TCP/IP, DHCP management, WINS/DNS name resolution, and dynamic DNS.
It is the main intention of the author, however, to provide in-depth information on the most current protocols, technologies, and implementations of TCP/IP under Windows 2000 that are actually used and deployed throughout the Internet as well as in private TCP/IP networks. This material has been compiled as both an overview and a technical reference for advanced TCP/IP users and experts in this area who want to broaden their scope of knowledge.How This Book Is Laid Out
This book covers four main areas of Windows 2000: TCP/IP, DHCP, WINS, and DNS. The discussion focuses on what's new with each of these applications under Windows 2000 and how this difference may vary from Windows NT 4.0 and from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards.
From there, the focus is be on planning, configuring, managing, supporting clients, setting up options, modifying server defaults, monitoring, optimizing, and interoperability issues, depending on the application. Practical examples are used throughout these discussions.
Finally, a review of the majority of menu options under the MMC for each application is presented. These sections, like the rest of the book, have been cross-referenced to provide you with a thorough understanding of Microsoft TCP/IP.From the Back Cover:

The complete guide to Windows 2000 TCP/IP, DHCP, WINS, and DNS.
This expert reference gives enterprise IT professionals serious, comprehensive guidance on Windows 2000 TCP/IP, DHCP, WINS, and DNS: planning, migration, deployment, management, troubleshooting, and more. Networking expert Paul Ammann presents specific solutions for the most common Windows 2000 networking challenges and applications — everything you need to build robust, manageable, high-performance enterprise networks!
Using real-world examples, Ammann illuminates every corner of Windows 2000 TCP/IP: architecture, installation, configuration, routing, WINS/DNS name resolution, dynamic DNS, and much more. You'll find crucial information on how Windows 2000's TCP/IP implementation differs from Windows NT 4.0, how it differs from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards, and how to make it work in your environment.
Among the topics Ammann covers in depth are: supporting TCP/IP clients, setting up options, modifying server defaults, monitoring optimization, and achieving interoperability. He also presents step-by-step techniques for implementing cost-effective remote management, dynamic setup, roaming users, intelligent Web browsing, software distribution, printing, PPP dial-up, and many other key network applications.
