This guide, updated in this edition, covers the Linux TCP/IP stack in embedded systems projects and the Linux implementation of TCP/IP. In each chapter, it follows the data through networking protocols. Its objectives are to describe the foundation of the system, and demonstrate how it is robust. A general background in data communications is assumed, so the book is meant for programmers, engineers, and networking professionals. Changes include a new chapter on implementing a protocol suite. A CD-ROM is included; it contains an implementation of a sample NADA protocol suite, the RFC (Request For Comments) A document that describes the specifications for a recommended technology. Although the word "request" is in the title, if the specification is ratified, it becomes a standards document. files from the book, and the Linux source tree. Herbert is affiliated with a consulting company that focuses on embedded systems, networking, and communications design and development, and he has extensive experience as an embedded engineer.
