Description - Hands-on Networking with Internet Technologies by Douglas E. Comer
Acclaimed author Douglas E. Comer's book, Hands-On Networking with Internet Technologies, upholds the assertion that the best way to learn is by doing. Through laboratory experimentation, students and professionals gain a better understanding of how computer networks and Internet technologies operate in practice. Organized into sections that focus on the hardware and software platforms of different lab facilities, this book systematically constructs and augments a practical knowledge of networking. From singlecomputer applications to advanced network systems engineering, a broad spectrum of hands-on experiments addresses a variety of difficulty levels, and guides the user to a deeper comprehension of the functionality and subtleties of networking in action. FEATURES Shows how to apply the concepts covered in Dr. Comer's Computer Networks and Internets, Fourth Edition. Provides hands-on experiments with TCP/IP protocols and networking systems used on the Internet. Depicts a wide range of possible networking testbeds and provides exercises that use each. Includes experiments that can be performed with a conventional PC.
Lists individual steps to be performed for each exercise, and offers optional extensions for those who desire additional challenges. Accompanying website contains supporting materials including additional hardware and software details, test data, programming hints, and alternative approaches. Instructor materials available, including solutions to problems. www labbook.cs.purdue.edu
