This reference has now been divided into two volumes to reflect the most recent changes in the field. Volume 1 provides a broad, conceptual introduction to the TCP/IP internetworking protocols and the connected TCP/IP Internet. It reviews network hardware, including wide area national backbones ARPANET and NSFNET, and local area technologies Ethernet and token rings. Addresses binding (ARP) and the IP concepts of connectionless datagram delivery, error detection and control, multicasting, and routing are covered. In addition, Comer compares the ISO 7-layer reference model to the TCP/IP 5-layer model in his discussion of protocol layering.

The TCP/IP "bible"— now completely updated to reflect all the latest technologies! Leading Internet expert Douglas Comer has updated his classic, superb introduction to TCP/IP-based internetworking that is renowned for its clarity and accessibility in explaining internetworking and routing. Discover how the basic TCP/IP technology has survived and evolved over two decades of exponential growth, and understand the TCP/IP protocols and technical advances. This edition explains emerging technologies such as Mobile IP, Virtual Private Networks, resource reservation with RSVP, and Ipv6. Comer reveals how to master TCP/IP and how the Internet works. The reader is required to have a modest background in the fundamentals of computer systems, but does not need sophisticated mathematics. As with previous editions, this edition provides an introduction to physical networks and then shows how they are combined to form an internet. It states design principles clearly, and discusses motivations and consequences.
