If you're one of those people who treat subnet masking as an arcane branch of ceremonial magic, this is the book you've been waiting for. It should have been called "Everything you always wanted to know about IP but were afraid to ask".
After some history and an introduction to binary and hex the authors move from addressing and subnet basics to fixed-length mask networks and then on to private addressing and address handling in large networks. Chapter 4 deals with address translation after which you are considered sufficiently robust of mind to cope with variable length subnet masking. In chapter 6 you tackle that major bugbear--routing. This section deals with classless addressing; the technique which saved the Internet from the lack of class B and C IP addresses. After dealing with DHCP for on-the-fly IP address allocation chapter 8 tackles multicast and the MBone. Then it's on to the intricacies of IPv6 for the rest of the book.
IP Addressing And Subnetting is a practical, hands-on work which every network admin should have available. It's accurate and authoritative, with tables and worked examples designed to take the guesswork out of IP address work. You'll probably end up with photocopied pages stuck on the walls of your machine room. Even more refreshing, the authors acknowledge the limitations of a single book on such a large subject. They frequently refer the reader to the relevant Internet RFCs for fine-grained information as well as other networking information resources. This is an excellent find. --Steve Patient [via]
