I wish you luck on your course, these links will help; they have general
information about networking and there's a lot of information about networks
on the web but these pages I find are very good at explaining the concepts.
http://www.decodes.com/protocol/protocol.htm you will find a lot of
information for protocols; it has a great selection of links, forums, etc.;
http://standards.ieee.org/ enough said
http://www.techfest.com/networking/ TechFest's Networking page.
http://www.iol.unh.edu/training/index.html A large collection of
communication tutorials may be found at IOL's training page, which has links to
materials on TCP/IP, LAN technologies, programming & administrations manuals,
Network Analysis and Troubleshooting, Haugdahl, J. Scott and
Addison Wesley, 1999.
This comprehensive book provides the latest protocol information and
troubleshooting strategies to help you keep your network running at peak
performance. You will find essential information on such topics as:
-Wiring and cable testing issues
-Transmission encoding techniques
-Dissecting the IEEE 48-bit MAC address
-The impact of different types of broadcast traffic
-Operational details and analysis considerations for switches
-Ethernet and Token Ring operational details and analysis
-The IEEE 802.2 LLC protocol
-Datagrams and routing
-IP specifics, including addressing, subnets, and the role of ICMP
-IPX operation and analysis
-UDP, TCP, SPX, and SPX II protocol analysis
-How different protocols find resources via NetBIOS, SAP, and DNS
-Logon sequencing for various protocol stacks
-DHCP, SMB, NCP, NFS, FTP, HTTP, and NT Browse protocol analysis and
-Baselining throughput and latency, including understanding the "latency
Computer Networks (Recommended: I used this one)
By Andrew S. Tanenbaum
Published by Prentice-Hall.
A very good book about computer communications basics.
Describes communications according to the OSI seven layers model,
but includes information about TCP/IP and IPv6.
TCP/IP Network Administration By Craig Hunt
Published by O'Reilly
An excellent book about management of TCP/IP networks, covering
every subject that needed, including DNS, routing, sendmail,
configuring, and trouble-shooting. This book is UNIX oriented.
