This new book from Walter Goralski and Morgan-Kaufmann, The Illustrated Network: How TCP/IP Works in a Modern Network, updates the classic TCP/IP Illustrated from W. Richard Stevens to apply to 2008 equipment, OSes and routers. The book contains 330 illustrations, such as screenshots and topology diagrams, which portray examples from a real, working network configuration including servers, routers and workstations. The publisher says the illustrated approach “allows the reader to follow the discussion with unprecedented clarity and precision”. The Illustrated Network is device- and platform-agnostic.

In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
