How the Internet Works. Millenium Edition

Gralla, Preston Que Publishing 1999 ISBN 0-7897-2132 21.99 [pounds sterling]

An illustrated book in large type. We would call this an easy learning book. It does cover everything which means that it covers technical things until you have read about them and then they are no longer technical. We like this book for getting an overall grasp of its subject. 16.12.99 5188

Voice over IP Fundamentals

Davidson, Jonathan & Peters, James Cisco Press ISBN 1-57870-168-6 373 pages 2000 46.50 [pounds sterling]

The key to this book is the fundamentals in its title. Largely the book deals with switching i.e. setting up calls over both existing telephone networks and over IP (i.e. the Internet) networks. Numbering systems and setting up connections is by no means straight forward. But it is fundamental so that is what the book explains. The actual transmission of speech is covered but then that is the easy bit. A very good book for someone who has to come to terms with what can be done easily and well. 20.9.00 5272

Big Book of Internet Host Standards

Loshin, Pete Morgan Kaufman 2000 ISBN 0-12-455844-5 iii+45+21+85+8 +12+18+17+116+98+20+10

Internet host requirements are specified by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Published online as RFCs (Request for Comments), these requirements are designated as part of the STD (Standards) document series, and must be supported by any standards-compliant system connected to the Internet. Anyone involved in building or maintaining any system connected to the Internet, whether a server, a host, or an appliance, needs this essential information to learn exactly how to make it standards-compliant. Likewise, anyone supporting TCP/IP systems should turn to this volume for information on how their systems, servers and networks should behave. This book compiles and organizes these essential documents in a single printed volume, adding an introduction and an extensive index, his means you no longer have to search through various RFCs in hopes of finding the answer to your host requirement question - all relevant standards are compiled here, with an extensive index that makes it easy to locate precisely the answer you need. If you buy one host requirement reference, this is the one to choose. The RFCs are free by downloading over the Web.

Big Book of World Wide Web RFCs

Loshin, Pete Morgan Kaufmann 2000 ISBN 0-12-455841-0 pages xix+28+10+25+16 +21+8+7+37+24+40 +16+94+43+33+14+176+34+10+17

The emergence of the Web has done more to change the Internet than all of the many applications that once defined it. No single standards document specifies the World Wide Web, but rather an entire sequence of documents published as Requests for Comments (RFCs). This book compiles and organises these essential documents in a single printed volume, adding an introduction and an extensive index. This means you no longer have to search through countless RFCs to find the answer to your question about a World Wide Web protocol - all specifications are compiled in a single book, with an index that makes answers easier to locate. This book contains the most important and relevant RFCs describing or affecting the World Wide Web, including specifications for the protocols that define how Web servers and Web browsers internet and how Web resources are identified and located by browsers and servers. If you buy one World Wide Web standard reference, this is the one to choose. The RFCs are free by downloading over the Web. 20.9.00 5284

Big Book of FYI RFCs

Loshin, Pete (Compiler) Morgan Kaufmann 2000 ISBN 0-12-455848-8 38 page sequences

Do you ever wonder why Internet hosts are named the way they are? Want to know what you can and should do about unsolicited email? Need to know which came first, Ethernet or TCP? Wonder exactly what an Internet or network security term means? Want to know how to behave at your first IETF meeting?

The IETF decided that the internet community should have access to that kind of information, and more, in a set of documents called the For Your information (FYI) series. Published simultaneously in the Requests for Comments (RFCS) series, each FYi casts unique perspective on some aspect of the Internet from highlighting security issues to providing a timeline for Internet history to simply defining terms used when speaking or writing about the internet. This book collects and organizes the most interesting and current FYIs in a single printed volume, adding an introduction and extensive index. This means you no longer have to search through RFC archives in hopes of finding the answer to your questions - the most commonly referenced FYIs are compiled here, with an extensive index that makes it simple to locate the answer you need. 16.1.01 5335

The IETF decided that the Internet community should have access to that kind of information,and more, in a set of documents called the Best Current Practices (BCP) series. Published simultaneously in the Requests for Comments (RFCS) series, each BCP goes beyond the basic protocol specifications to explain how, not just what, to do over the Internet. 16.1.01 5334
