Hunt and Thompson focus exclusively on TCP/IP and NT without digressing to Internet/World Wide Web issues--telling NT network administrators what they need to know. The book starts with the fundamentals and then goes on to important networking services provided as part of Windows NT.
Windows NT TCP/IP Network Administration is a complete guide to setting up and running a TCP/IP network on Windows NT. Windows NT and TCP/IP have long had a close association, and this is the first book to focus exclusively on NT networking with TCP/IP. It starts with the fundamentals--what the protocols do and how they work, how addresses and routing move data through the network, and how to set up your network connection. Beyond that, all the important networking services provided as part of Windows NT-- including IIS, RRAS, DNS, WINS, and DHCP--are presented in detail. This book is the NT administrator's indispensable guide.Contents include:OverviewDelivering the dataNetwork servicesGetting startedInstalling and configuring NT TCP/IPUsing Dynamic Host Configuration ProtocolUsing Windows Internet Name ServiceUsing Domain Name ServiceConfiguring Email ServiceUsing Microsoft routingUsing Remote Access ServiceTroubleshooting TCP/IPNetwork SecurityInternet Information ServerAppendixes on the TCP/IP commands, PPP script language reference, and DNS resource records
