Editorial Review

This is the definitive book on the Domain Name System (DNS), the powerful scheme that facilitates the translation of English-like domain names (www.amazon.com) into computer-comprehensible Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (208.216.182.15). If you run a DNS server of any kind, particularly under Unix, you need to have this book on hand.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Well Presented Concepts and Implementations (5th ed.)
Foreword: I have been running my own DNS servers on OpenBSD and FreeBSD for about 4 years. All of my previous DNS knowledge was obtained from the man pages and online tutorials. 5-0 out of 5 stars Most comprehensive book on DNS and Bind
First off, the most recent edition of this book was published in May 2006, so all reviews prior to that are discussing previous editions of this book.
4-0 out of 5 stars Informative, but not as clear as it could be
I found this book to be informative, but I sometimes had trouble understanding what they where saying.I found The Concise Guide to DNS and BIND by Nicolai Langfeldt to be more understandable in some places.If you have a good grasp of other parts of unix system administration, this book would most likely be fine. If you are more of a beginner and only want one book, get The Concise Guide.However, I recommend getting both, because they supplement each other very well. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Are you interested in wanting to understand and implement the IPv6 protocol! If you are, then this book is for you. Author Silvia Hagen, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that covers IPv6 in detail and explains all of the new features and functions.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent discussion of IPv6 protocols
I read and reviewed "IPv6 Network Administration" (INA) in August 2005 and "Running IPv6" (RI) in January 2006.I gave those books 5 stars, so I had high expectations for "IPv6 Essentials, 2nd Ed" (IE2E).INA and RI are very hands-on, implementation-specific books.IE2E is more concerned with explaining protocols and IPv6 features.In this respect, IE2E is the perfect complement to INA and RI.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent 2nd edition contains lots of practical information
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is a network layer standard used by electronic devices to exchange data across a packet-switched internetwork and is intended to provide more addresses for networked devices, allowing, for example, each cell phone and mobile electronic device to have its own address. IPv6 is actually capable of supporting5×10^28 addresses for each of the roughly 6.5 billion people alive today.

I was tired of working 60 hrs/wk and NOT getting caught up. I manage 14 locations with around 500 users. I was 2 years behind on some projects. This book was a tremendous help.

5-0 out of 5 stars Time Management for Techies who get Interrupted Frequently
How many times do you get interrupted from your "main" task in a day?"Time Management for Techies who get Interrupted Frequently" could have been the title of this book.While the real title of this book is "Time Management for System Administrators," it is really useful for any techie who faces interruptions.And that's most of us!
5-0 out of 5 stars "TIME AFTER TIME!!"
Are you an IT worker? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Thomas Limoncelli, has done an outstanding job of writing a practical book for IT people who are early in their career, but also for industry veterans who will find these time management techniques to be equally useful.

2-0 out of 5 stars Miserable dictionary of doublespeak
Not recommended for native speakers of the English language.
5-0 out of 5 stars The overall pros and cons of Active Directory, common tips and traps, and more
Joe Richards, Robbie Allen and Alistair G. Lowe-Norris' Active Directory, 3rd Edition is also for Windows administrators who may know all to well about the problems it's brought to prior versions of windows. This edition considers the Directory for Windows 2000, 2003 and its updates, considering the overall pros and cons of Active Directory, common tips and traps, and more. Yes, you can use Microsoft's documentation for many similar answers; but here they are arranged in a more logical manner and provide more candid assessments to help users upgrade or understand options.

This Cookbook is the best selling of the Active Directory books.But you should know that there is a new Second Edition simply called Active Directory Cookbook that was revised by Joe Richards, the MVP and it has a lot of good stuff on topics like ADAM and updates for SP2.So get that.

Editorial Review

Among network designers and administrators, wired Ethernet is a known quantity. Plenty is known about how to build good twisted-pair network infrastructures, how to keep them secure, and how to monitor their excess capacity. Not so for the wireless Ethernet networks (built around the IEEE 802.11x standards)--these hold much more mystery for even experienced network designers. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible 802.11 book
I tend not to read and review books on as broad a subject as "wireless networking."I've read and reviewed wireless security books like Real 802.11 Security and Wi-Foo, but 802.11 Wireless Networks: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Ed (8WN2E) was a departure for me.Thankfully, 8WN2E is an incredible book.It exceeded my expectations and definitely earned its "Definitive Guide" status.
5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Guide To Wireless Networks
'802.11 Wireless Networks: The Definitive Guide' by Matthew Gast is a very comprehensive look at wireless networks from top to bottom.Spanning 600+ pages, this is an extensive look at one of the most important technologies of the last 50 years.No matter where you are on this planet, wireless networking has changed your life and no doubt it will continue to expand as we humans invent and adapt all over the planet.Buyer beware, this guide is not for the basic reader, rather it is a thorough look at the technology and it can get confusing at times!
5-0 out of 5 stars Your Guid to Wi-Fi
Gast's comprehensive coverage of the 802.11 standard is definitly worthy of the title 'definitive guide'.The reading is fairly fast paced and written in such a way that readers can skip to certain chapters and gain insight on the high level of the protocol with previous knowledge of the lower chapters.For example, one can read about 802.1X and its application to Wi-Fi without needing to read previous chapters as the author provides any re-cap that will be needed from earlier chapters.

5-0 out of 5 stars Magic bullet for quick DNS fixes/receipies
If you need to understand the difference between BIND 9 or Windows AD DNS and BIND 8, this is not the book for you. But if your management decides to tell you about the imporant new product launch on 20 servers in a new domain they just bought and kept under wraps to stun the competition which they need implemented in some novel way that requires a DNS twist, THIS will save you.
5-0 out of 5 stars A 'MUST HAVE' for new DNS Administrators
This book has turned out to be the best investment I've made so far in my 20 year IT career. I've always trusted O'Reilly books for their detailed accuracy. However, for the task at hand, I didn't need a book to explain WHY things work... I needed one to tell me how to GET them to work. This book was perfect! It doesn't replace the DNS and BIND, 4th Edition, but is a great compliment... Actually, I'm finding the 4th Edition a perfect compliment to the Cookbook.

4-0 out of 5 stars A NICE PROBLEM-SOLVING ORIENTATION
"DNS & BIND Cookbook" is a problem-solving text, which Network Administrators will be glad to read. It displayed utmost rationality in its simple and concise way of dealing with most problems, which arise from Domain Name Systems. It also exposed all the factors, which are likely to escalate Berkeley Internet Name Domain problems, before providing their remedies in a clear sequential order.Read more

I bought this book hoping that it would explain how LDAP works. Basicaly this book tells you how to set up a server and let other tools use it as they see fit.
4-0 out of 5 stars LDAP System Administration review
This book provides a good introduction to implementing OpenLDAP.I found the authors "jumped" tangentially around quite a bit topically, rather than following an idea from start to finish.It was a bit disconcerting following the examples and being interrupted with background material constantly.This may be an editorial problem, as usually backreferences to material are enclosed in callout boxes, while the topical flow continues.3-0 out of 5 stars LDAP Administration for UNIX
It covers LDAP installation and implementation (using OpenLDAP) for various services on UNIX platform, i.e. NIS, Email, Clients and Mail Transfer Agents (MTA), FTP and Web servers, Samba, FreeRadius, DNS, and Printer Management. A quick introduction on how to implement LDAP server for various services in your organisation.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best Linux networking software book to start with
I have read a number of books on the TCP/IP protocols and their implementations; both the original Berkeley (BSD) Unix TCP/IP stack and the Linux TCP/IP stack.I must say that this is the best of all of them.This book makes the subject very approachable for the newcomer to network protocol software but the explanations are detailed enough to satisfy an old dog like me.Benvenuti's writing style is clear and very readable.He liberally provides diagrams to illustrate the concepts he is discussing.
5-0 out of 5 stars TAKE THE LINUX NETWORK TOUR!
Are you a newcomer who already has some knowledge of networking? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Christian Benvenuti, has done an outstanding job of writing practical guide that represents a good starting point for anyone willing to learn more about the Linux kernal internals.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book
This book is certainly a good reference book for me when I need to know about network programming using Java.As you all know, Java Network Programming is a vast subject, on which a single book can make no justice of.But Elliotte has tried and he is successful with this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive reference (3rd Edition)
If you're doing anything with Java and Network I/O programming, the topic will most likely be covered in this book.The author does a great job describing not only how Java handles network programming, but the concepts and details of network programming in general.The book takes the core java.net classes and describes each method, what it does, how to use it, what to watch for, code examples, etc - it takes the API Javadoc and expands upon it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book that is Ready for an Update
This is a great reference for anyone who supports Cisco routers, BUT...some of the sections are out of date, for example, the section on QOS.Also, a section that needs to be added is MPLS.I would buy a new version just for these two enhancements!Hopefully it is being updated right now and we'll see a new printing this year!

5-0 out of 5 stars Complete Reference guide - a must have
Cisco Cookbook is a a complete reference guide for field engineers and Network Administrators.The book has practically everything you need to know to competently configure cisco routers for a production environment.However, if you do not already have a working knowledge of Cisco networking technologies this book maybe over your head.For experienced Engineers and Administrators, the book is a must have for your desk reference.

If you are an administrator and you have forgotten details about a router configuration,that you need. this book will be the real lifesaver.

Even though you've been configuring or operating Juniper routers for long time and you think you are familiar enough with JUNOS, you'll still learn something you don't know from this book; the "Problem/Solution/Discussion/See Also" structure helps to quickly find and read the exact information you need and nothing more, if you don't need to, just like you would use a standard dictionary.

5-0 out of 5 stars Network Security Assessment
explainsa variety of exploits and tells you how to harden your network. This book is very well researched and extremely well written and is reader friendly, as some security books leave the reader lost in techno babble, not this book however very easy reading it now sits on my desk as a ready reckoner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book for security policy enablers and admins
This is one of the few books that I have come across that focuses mainly on the innards of security assessments. The services based security and counter measures are helpful for threat modeling. This book is really great for people in the security risk and threat analysis for a quantitative and qualitative validation. Good book to help in setting up corporate security policy model.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good Methodology and Specifics
I've read a heck of a lot of books on security assessments.Some turn into hacking manuals, others turn into windy documents on documenting the process and why each piece of the process is important.

Editorial Review

Samba, the Server Message Block (SMB) server software that makes it relatively easy to integrate Unix or Linux servers into networks of Microsoft Windows workstations, has to date been mostly explained as an afterthought. Most often, it's appeared in the latter chapters of books about Linux. It deserves better, and the authors of Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Samba is so cool! And this book is so perfect in getting you set up so that you can use it. I have slowly been introducing a Unix (freebsd) system into our office network (all Windows). I had NO idea how to set up Samba or anything.
3-0 out of 5 stars Obsolete and No longer applicable
This book covers the older SAMBA 2.0 which has a set of solutions for 10-year old Windows NT domain era of obsoleted technologies. There is some small mention of SAMBA 3.0 in the later edition, but it is still 98% SAMBA 2.0 based, which is far too overdocumented.
4-0 out of 5 stars More than you wanted to read, more than you wanted to know
Oh my goodness this book is detailed. This is truly a case of teaching a man to fish rather than feeding him. This book covers everything in grizzly detail. If you're not prepared to sit down and chew your way to being a Samba guru then get something else. This book is a long and I must admit a dry read but it's very powerful. It doesn't make light of the topic and it takes a while to read but like anything of value it's worth the effort. Excellent book, if you're using Samba in an office environment you need this book, you'll find out how to do all kinds of things you only dreamed of. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars TCP/IP Fundamentals
This book covers the in's and out's of TCP/IP with a Unix focus. Non-Unix users will find this book equally useful as the Unix user, in that it presents the information in a format that is easy to follow as well as comprehensive.
5-0 out of 5 stars Cannot Live Without
Though this book is oriented to UNIX, I find it tremendously useful as a Windows administrator.Core concepts gleamed from thisbook has catapulted me greatly into my career, and allowed me to solve complex networking problems and avert major disasters.
2-0 out of 5 stars this book is terrible
I can't understand all the glowing reviews this book is recieving, it is a VERY cursory and shallow treatment of far to much material.It's just all over the place.Please stay away from the "crab book", it sucks.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good SNMP coverage, but I needed a little more help
Essential SNMP, 2nd Ed (ES2E) fills a gap in being a modern book about an important management protocol.SNMP is used extensively by network management stations (NMS) like Nagios, which is now the subject of two independent books.E2SE does a good job covering SNMP issues important to administrators and NMS users.However, the book's organization and subject matter could be improved in the 3rd edition.
5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE!!
Are you a system or network administrator who could benefit from using SNMP to manage your equipment, but have little or no experience with SNMP or SNMP applications? If you are, this book is for you. Authors Douglas Mauro and Kevin Schmidt, have written an outstanding 2nd edition of a book that demystifies SNMP and makes it more accessible to a wider range of users.

I found this book to give a fairly good description of CVS.It gives a detailed description of CVS and touches on the various GUI frontends that are available.I am learning to use TortoiseCVS and WinCVS and found this book to nicely complement the material available on the internet.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great start to CVS
I administer our CVS server at work.We use CVS in the traditional way, to manage source code from a group of people working together on multiple projects.Before this book, I didn't have a single reference that explained all the basic functionality of CVS.Now, when someone has a question, I can pass along this book for a quick answer.3-0 out of 5 stars Not Clear on the Merging Branches
For me the quick way to review a CVS book is to read it's sections on merging branches. It was covered in about two pages in this book and wholely inadequate.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good choice for investigating VoIP for your organization...
It seems like Voice over Internet Protocol, aka VoIP, is starting to become much more mainstream.Not only are businesses switching over, but now you can set up your home phone access to use VoIP (aka "broadband") technology.Ted Wallingford has done a nice job in explaining the business side of the possibilities in the book Switching to VoIP - A Solutions Manual for Network Professionals.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This book provides a comprehensive look at not only VoIP, but all related legacy telephony systems it may interact with or replace.A wonderful resource for anyone considering a VoIP deployment either at the office or at home.The technical detail and background the author provides in his examples and background information is incredibly helpful.I definately recommend..

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good
As the telcom manager for a rather large enterprise (45,000 users) I try to keep up on the various books on VoIP and this one is pretty good. It is designed towards someone who is knowledgeable about voice and data but not necessarily someone how is an expert in either subject. It also does a very good job of not focusing on any one type of technology but covers H.323, SIP and Cisco amongst many others and gives you a good sense of each flavor that is available. I would recommend it for anyone looking to deploy VoIP. ... Read more
