Internetworking With TCP/ip : Client-server Programming and Applications - Windows Sockets Version, Volume III (97 Edition)by Douglas E. Comer
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
This volume answers the question "How does one use TCP/IP?"—focusing on the client-server paradigm, and examining algorithms for both the client and server components of a distributed program. KEY TOPICS: It presents an implementation that illustrates each design and discusses techniques like application-level gateways and tunneling. The book also reviews several standard application protocols and uses them to illustrate the algorithms and implementation techniques.
Book News Annotation:
Explains to programmers of application software how such software use the standard protocols to communicate over the Internet. This WINSOCK Version is for those who are building software for personal computers using Windows 95 or Windows NT, which support the Win32 programming interface and can use the Windows Sockets API discussed in the text. First discusses the client-server paradigm and socket interface that application programs use for network communication, then describes designs that emphasize practical principles and techniques. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Organized for easy reading. First the client-server paradigm and socket interface that application programs use for network communication are covered. this is followed by a discussion of client and server designs that emphasize practical design principles and techniques that are important to programmers.
Appropriate for a one semester introductory networking course at the senior or graduate level.This volume answers the question "How does application software use TCP/IP to communicate over a network?"--focusing on the client-server paradigm, and examining algorithms for both the client and server components of a distributed program.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -498) and index.
