    Default Need a good TCP/IP book

    I've been to several bookstore (Borders, Barnes & Nobles) looking for a good TCP/IP book, and so far none of them seem like they're any good. Are there any good ones I can order online? I think learning all there is about tcp/ip will be a good transition from what i already know.

    TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1 by Richard W Stevens or the Cisco Official CCNA Study Guide are both excellent references on TCP/IP networking. The Cisco book also has some Cisco specific stuff in it, but the general stuff in the book is worthwhile even if the Cisco stuff doesnt interest you.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    As a TCP/IP junkie, I can definitely recommend the Stevens book and the Official CCNA book. As well, I would recommend Douglas Comer's book Internetworking with TCP/IP vol. 1 There is a copy of the 2000 ed. on Amazon for $1.37 right now. An excellent deal.
    Also, IBM's TCP/IP Red Book is available in PDF online at no charge here. IBM Redbooks | TCP/IP Tutorial and Technical Overview

    Finally, I've found Eric Hall's Internet Core Protocols book to be extremely informative as a cursory introduction to the important protocols.

    Have fun and don't forget to also read the RFC's, esp. 791.
