The Linux Networking-HOWTO details important networking issues when using the popular Linux operating system. Linux Networking-HOWTO includes:
[*] informative background material for newcomers
[*] a generic discussion of networking issues
[*] technology-specific information grouped in three main sections: Ethernet and IP-related information, technologies pertaining to widespread PC hardware, and seldom-used technologies.
This book is an outgrowth of the original NET-FAQ, written by Matt Welsh and Terry Dawson. It covered the very early development versions of the Linux Networking Kernel. Linux Networking HOWTO is an updated resource, and relates to version 4 of the Linux Networking Kernel, or more specifically kernel releases 2.x and 2.2.x.
