It used to be said that you needed either the three volumes from Stevens (of which this is the first) or the three from Doug Comer (which I don't own), to do any serious network programming. His untimely death delayed any updates of these fine works, but that has since been undertaken by Kevin Fall, and I recommend those books instead of this one.

The ISBN for that book is 0321336313.

The protocols book covers the basics, using familiar tools such as tcpdump to help visualize the network, transport, and application layers of the network protocols. It's a great book. Just get the second edition. ( )

This is a fantastic textbook about different network protocols. The protocols are illustrated using the output of tcpdump and other utilities. Protocols discussed include:

IP
ARP
RARP
ICMP
UDP
IGMP
TFTP
BOOTP
TCP
SNMP
FTP
SMTP

Beside the protocols several diagnostic tools such as ping and traceroute are covered in detail. The book contains lots of diagrams, that illustrate the protocols even further. Each chapter ends with exercises. The solutions of some of those exercises can be found in the book as well. I give this book 4 stars out of 5. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0201633469, Hardcover)

TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1: The Protocols is an excellent text that provides encyclopedic coverage of the TCP/IP protocol suite. What sets this book apart from others on this subject is the fact that the author supplements all of the discussion with data collected via diagnostic programs; thus, it is possible to "watch" the protocols in action in a real situation. Also, the diagnostic tools involved are publicly available; the reader has the opportunity to play along at home. This offers the reader an unparalleled opportunity to really get a feel for the behavior of the protocols in day-to-day operation. TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1: The Protocols features clear discussions and well-designed figures.

Volume two of this series, TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 2: The Implementation, covers the implementation of TCP/IP. Volume three explores TCP for Transactions, HTTP, NNTP, and the Unix Domain Protocols.
