i know this is not the right folder but i dont know where else to post this you guys so im sorry. anyway i wanted to know what are some good books that deals with networking? the reason i ask is that one of my friends wants to learn about networking and he barely knows anything about networking such as TCP/IP, DNS, OSI Model, etc.etc.etc.etc.

i recommended him a book from a class i took but that one is kinda outdated, the publisher was dated 2002 or something. if i still have it i would give it to my friend but i sold it since i was broke. lol well there are alot of you networking gurus out there what are some good books that deal with networking.

you know, books that explain in detail about TCP/IP, OSI model, history of the internet, firewalls, NAT, DHCP, DNS, security, etc.etc.etc. provide some links of you guys can. logik provide some input if you can. thanks

This might be along the lines of what you are looking for.

But I think buying three or four cheapo computers and some CAT5 and wireless stuff to play with is a better idea.

Build it , kill it, then fix it.

I mean there IS the internet ya know...

Well he DID request suggestions for books in the first post. But I DID say Ye Olde Internet has a few useful sources on the subject.

I prefer the books written by Sybex, and for a good starter either an A+ guide or a CCNA guide, either one, although it sounds like your friend should probably start with the A+.

Also, check out the REAL authorities on all that is computers, the RFC's.
(Request for Comment's)
These are most easily found online.

Also, at least two pc's and a simple switch are a must.

Hope this helps.

:)
