To be well connected (network-wise, that is), sooner or later you have to become familiar with TCP/IP. So if you want to understand what it is, what it does, what it’s for, why you need it, and what to do with it, but you just don’t know where to start – this book is for you. If you have to install and set up TCP/IP on your computer at home or on lots of computers for your company, you'll find lots of Hands-On sections that take you through the process step by step.
TCP/IP For Dummies, 5th Edition, is both an introduction to the basics and a reference to help you use TCP/IP applications and tools on all kinds of computers connected to networks. Here are some of the many subjects that this book covers:

TCP/IP for Dummies is for anyone who wants to explore what really makes the Web tick. In a lighthearted style, the authors explain the basics of TCP/IP and other technologies. They discuss what TCP/IP can do in the context of various types of networks such as LANs and WANs and briefly introduce the reader to concepts such as firewalls and client/server applications.
The book continues with tutorials on SMTP--the standard mail protocol of the Net--and other bedrock protocols such as FTP, Telnet, and DNS in easy-to-understand language that demystifies the oodles of acronyms. Information follows on how IP addresses, IPv6, dial-up networking, and thin clients work.
In the Part of Tens section--a hallmark of the Dummies series--the authors go wild with lists such as Ten Reasons to use TCP/IP, Ten Frequently Asked Questions about TCP/IP, and Ten RFCs Worth Tasting. If you want to leave the safe world of your browser to go down the technical route, TCP/IP for Dummies offers an easy read and an informative presentation. --Stephen W. PlainFrom the Back Cover:
