Written by networking veteran with 20 years of experience, Network Warrior provides a thorough and practical introduction to the entire network infrastructure, from cabling to the routers. What you need to learn to pass a Cisco certification exam such as CCNA and what you need to know to survive in the real world are two very different things. The strategies that this book offers weren 't on the exam, but they 're exactly what you need to do your job well.

Network Warrior takes you step by step through the world of hubs, switches, firewalls, and more, including ways to troubleshoot a congested network, and when to upgrade and why. Along the way, you 'll gain an historical perspective of various networking features, such as the way Ethernet evolved. Based on the author 's own experience as well as those he worked for and with, Network Warrior is a Cisco-centric book, focused primarily on the TCP/IP protocol and Ethernet networks -- the realm that Cisco Systems now dominates. The book covers:

The type of networks now in use, from LANs, WANs and MANs to CANs



The OSI Model and the layers involved in sending dataHubs, repeaters, switches, and trunks in practiceAuto negotiation and why it 's a common problem in network slowdownsRoute maps, routing protocols, and switching algorithms in Cisco routersThe resilient Ethernet -- how to make things truly redundantCisco 6500 multi-layer switches and the Catalyst 3750 switchTelecom nomenclature -- why it 's different from the data worldT1 and DS3Firewall theory, designing access lists, authentication in Cisco devicesServer load balancing technologyContent switch module in actionDesigning QOS and what QOS does not doIP design and subnetting made easy



The book also explains how to sell your ideas to management, how networks become a mess as a company grows, and why change control is your friend. Network Warrior will help network administrators and engineers win the complex battles they face every day.
DNS and BIND tells you everything you need to work with one of the Internet's fundamental building blocks: the distributed host information database that's responsible for translating names into addresses, routing mail to its proper destination, and even listing phone numbers with the new ENUM standard. This book brings you up-to-date with the latest changes in this crucial service.

The fifth edition covers BIND 9.3.2, the most recent release of the BIND 9 series, as well as BIND 8.4.7. BIND 9.3.2 contains further improvements in security and IPv6 support, and important new features such as internationalized domain names, ENUM (electronic numbering), and SPF (the Sender Policy Framework).

Whether you're an administrator involved with DNS on a daily basis or a user who wants to be more informed about the Internet and how it works, you'll find that this book is essential reading.

Topics include:

What DNS does, how it works, and when you need to use itHow to find your own place in the Internet's namespaceSetting up name serversUsing MX records to route mailConfiguring hosts to use DNS name serversSubdividing domains (parenting)Securing your name server: restricting who can query your server, preventing unauthorized zone transfers, avoiding bogus servers, etc.The DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) and Transaction Signatures (TSIG)Mapping one name to several servers for load sharingDynamic updates, asynchronous notification of change to a zone, and incremental zone transfersTroubleshooting: using nslookup and dig, reading debugging output, common problemsDNS programming using the resolver library and Perl's Net::DNS module
