What You Should Know Before Reading This Book

This book assumes a foundation of networking knowledge that includes basic networking concepts and widely used networking technologies. For example, although the book explains in detail how IP packets are encapsulated when sent over an Ethernet network segment, it does not explain the history of Ethernet or its technical details, such as signal encoding, cabling, topologies, or configuration options. This knowledge is assumed.

This book also assumes a basic understanding of the TCP/IP protocol suite and its set of support protocols for Windows-based network. This includes an understanding of the architecture of the TCP/IP protocol suite, IP addressing, IP routing, name resolution, and the role of network infrastructure protocols such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Internet Protocol security (IPsec). To obtain a basic understanding of TCP/IP for Windows, see the TCP/IP Fundamentals for Microsoft Windows book in the \Fundamentals folder on the companion CD-ROM.
