Drew Heywood's Networking Windows 2000 highlights the crucial aspects of networking - such as hardware configuration and the core Windows 2000 networking issues - so the reader can successfully and efficiently setup and administer a Windows 2000 network. This book is a reference for the networking professional who needs to learn how to anticipate and solve problems before they happen.

A networking professional must understand the inner workings of Windows 2000 and how it relates to and communicates with other products, such as NetWare, UNIX, and Linux as network operating systems. To address these issues, the reader is presented with well-crafted coverage of the most vital networking components of the Windows 2000 family. Its detailed coverage will enable administrators to differentiate the features and technology changes from Windows NT 4.0 to Windows 2000.

This will be one of the first Windows 2000 networking titles that will be tested against the actual shipping product, versus the early books based on beta code and RC3. This allows the author to provide more accurate information based on real-world deployment case studies.

Readers will benefit from the author's expert discussions of topics including:

  • Installation Planning and Execution

  • TCP/IP Protocols

  • Domain Name Services (DNS)

  • Active Directory

  • Managing Domains

  • Domain Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)

  • Windows Internet Name Service (WINS)

  • Terminal Services and Thin Clients

  • Internet Information Services (IIS)
