Synopsis:
Guide to TCP/IP, Fourth Edition introduces readers to the concepts, terminology, protocols, and services that the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) suite uses to make the Internet work. This text stimulates hands-on skills development by not only describing TCP/IP capabilities, but also by encouraging users to interact with protocols. It provides the troubleshooting knowledge and tools that network administrators and analysts need to keep their systems running smoothly. Guide to TCP/IP, Fourth Edition covers topics ranging from traffic analysis and characterization, to error detection, security analysis and more. Both IPv4 and IPv6 are covered in detail.

Synopsis:
With the exponential growth of the Internet and increasing number of end users, service providers are increasingly looking for ways to expand their networks to meet the scalability requirements of the growing number of Internet-ready appliances or “always-on” devices. This book bridges a gap in the literature by providing coverage of Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6), specifically in broadband access networks. The authors, who are Cisco Certified Internetworking Experts (CCIE), provide comprehensive and first-rate coverage of:

  • IPv6 drivers in broadband networks
  • IPv6 deployment in Cable, DSL, ETTH, and Wireless networks
  • Configuring and troubleshooting IPv6 gateway routers and host
  • Configuring and troubleshooting IPv6 edge routers
  • Configuring and troubleshooting IPv6 provisioning servers

Title:  IPv6 socket API extensions : programmer’s guide
Author:  Li, Qing
Call number:  TK5105.585.L693P
Availability:  Click here

Synopsis:
IPv6 network programming makes up a growing segment of the current market as more and more companies are writing and implementing IPv6-specific software and therefore require IPv6 socket application programming interfaces.  IPv6 is implemented on all major operating systems in use in commercial, business and home consumer environments.  According to a recent study by arstechnia.com (12/08), Mac OS leads in IPv6 penetration, followed by Linux and Windows Vista. 

This book covers the IPv6 application interface application (API) extensions and enhancements that have been made to the socket APIs. This book also explains the internal kernel implementation that realizes the services offered by the API sets and describes several standard user libraries that have been extended or created to support IPv6.  It offers examples to illustrate how to write portable applications that can run on either IPv4 or IPv6 networks. Source code will be downloadable from a companion website. [As taken from Amazon]
