Need help about nets and protocols

Post by Kencho »

Well, mates, I need your help. I need good references (tutorials, books...) about the following topics as soon as possible:
OSI
TCP/IP
X25
Frame Relay
ISDN
Net management

Any help will be welcome. I'll need them to pass an important subject, and time is almost over, so I need urgent help :? Thanks a lot in advance.

my bookshelf is early 90's timeframe so probably not in print ,
but may be available in libraries (fortunately the protocols etc
dont change much ) but what I have and have used are

- series of 3 books by douglas comer on internetworking with tcp/ip
published by prentice hall 1991 - 1993 I found them very good

- unix network programming by w richard stevens prentice hall (1990)
which has chaps 1,5 on overviews , rest is unixy (v good for me)

- data communications, computer networks and open systems by fred halsall
addison wesley 1992 ... a bit heavy going ... never did get into it ,
but should cover most things . doesnt have frame relay in index.

I didnt think that osi was much used these days , but that wouldnt stop
questions being asked about it !

Most of the open internet protocols are available as 'requests for comments' (rfc) with a number
eg rfc 1939 - Post Office Protocol , not sure whether those would be of interest.

Hope you get some better suggestions than these :-)

Cheers,

Steve

Thanks, I'll take a look to them (hope I can find them in the university library).
I need to learn as much as I can about that before monday, and I have the worst class notes ever! :(

Tee hee, you're a bigger flake than I am! I didn't think it was possible. :)

Good luck!
