Ted Wallingford's VoIP Hacks: Tips & Tools For Internet Telephony (0596101333, $29.95) covers the hack potential of VoIP technology, providing dozens of projects for building a VoIP network, customizing hardware and software, and using devices. Users with some basic background who love to customize will be especially delighted. Mike Danseglio & Robbie Allen's Windows Server 2003 Security Cookbook (0596007531, $49.95) is for the IT pro and systems administrator concerned with Windows security. Windows 2003 is much more secure than prior versions but you have to know how to set it up properly--and that's where Windows Server 2003 Security Cookbook comes in, offering recipes and formulas sorted by task domain or system service for quick and easy access. Many topics here are more advanced coverages not seen in competing titles, such as auditing and event log usage. Joe Richards, Robbie Allen and Alistair G. Lowe-Norris' Active Directory, 3rd Edition (0596101732, $49.99) is also for Windows administrators who may know all to well about the problems it's brought to prior versions of windows. This edition considers the Directory for Windows 2000, 2003 and its updates, considering the overall pros and cons of Active Directory, common tips and traps, and more. Yes, you can use Microsoft's documentation for many similar answers; but here they are arranged in a more logical manner and provide more candid assessments to help users upgrade or understand options.
