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.
If you're setting off on an open-source enterprise-automation project, first download Apache's OFBiz, and then grab the new book Apache OFBiz Development: The Beginner's Tutorial.
