Chapters

CCIE Professional Development: Routing TCP/IP Volume 1 by Jeff Doyle

 

Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) — After a brief discussion of the basics of DECnet, this chapter addresses problems you may encounter and how you can go about resolving them.

 

Integrated IS-IS — Clear, complete coverage of the IS-IS routing protocol, including basic operation, configuration case studies, and troubleshooting.

 

CCNA Exam Certification Guide by Wendell Odom

Understanding the OSI Reference Model — Author Robert Wright, CCIE, first explains IP unnumbered and then discusses variable-length subnet masking. The use of these functions with routing protocols that don't support them can have varying implications, as illustrated in the different scenarios.

 

Understanding Routing — You need to consider multiple factors when deciding the best way to implement connectivity to non-local subnets. Here, the fundamental issue of reaching devices on remote subnets is addressed and possible solutions are provided.

   

Cisco Internetwork Design by Matthew Birkner

TCP/IP Design Overview — As a designer, knowing and understanding IP's benefits and limitations plays a tremendous role in your network's design. In this chapter, author Matthew Birkner discusses these IP design and scalability issues.

  OSPF Design — Eventually, you may have to face the challenge of building scalable OSPF internetworks. In this chapter, find out how to use modular design and summarization features to meet this challenge.
   

Cisco IOS 12.0 Solutions for Network Protocols, Volume I: IP by Technologies Riva; Systems Cisco

Configuring RIP — RIP is a classical distance-vector protocol that is still commonly used today. Here, you'll learn the steps to take to configure RIP.
   

Cisco Router Configuration by Bruce Pinsky; Allan Leinwand; Mark Culpepper

 

TCP/IP Basics — If you want specific information on configuring TCP/IP for Cisco IOS, check out this chapter. Network administrators will find this information beneficial before they leap into the additional subfeatures available to configure and enhance networks.

  IXP Basics — Learn the fundamentals of the IPX protocol suite and the core commands for configuring and troubleshooting an IPX network. See some configuration examples here also.
 

Cisco Systems Network Academy: First Year Companion Guide by Vito Amato

 

TCP/IP — Learn the functions of the application, transport, and network layers of TCP/IP. You'll also study ICMP, ARP, RARP, UTP, and the concepts of reliable and unreliable protocols in this companion to Cisco Systems' Networking Academy.

 

Enhanced IP Services for Cisco Networks by Donn Lee

Managing Routing Protocols — In a real-world network, routing protocols must be managed, extended, and optimized to promote overall network stability, flexibility, and efficiency. Here, author Donald C. Lee covers the key techniques that help you achieve these objectives.

   

IP Routing Fundamentals by Mark Sportack

Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol — Examine the architectural framework of EIGRP, its operational mechanics, and the similarities and differences between EIGRP and IGRP.

   

IP Routing Primer by Robert Wright

Routing Metrics and Distances — To gain a full understanding of routing metrics and distances, you must understand the details of convergence and parallel paths, both of which are discussed here.

 

Using IP Unnumbered and VLSM — Author Robert Wright, CCIE, first explains IP unnumbered and then discusses variable-length subnet masking. The use of these functions with routing protocols that don't support them can have varying implications, as illustrated in the different scenarios.

 

Default Routing — You need to consider multiple factors when deciding the best way to implement connectivity to non-local subnets. Here, the fundamental issue of reaching devices on remote subnets is addressed and possible solutions are provided.

   

OSPF Network Design Solutions by Thomas Thomas

Networking Routing Fundamentals — Routing with a network, whether it is the Internet or an intranet, requires a certain amount of "common" information. Essential points such as IP addressing, internetwork components, and network protocols are covered here.

 

Introduction to OSPF — Here, learn the details of the background and evolution of the OSPF protocol by tracing the RFCs relating to OSPF. OSPF's capability to perform as a hierarchical routing protocol is also discussed.

 

Designing & Implementing an OSPF Network — Author Thomas M. Thomas takes the mystery out of designing any type of network. Although OSPF is emphasized, the concepts and steps discussed here have universal application whether your network is BGP or OSPF.

   

TCP/IP Blueprints by Martin Bligh

Operating and Administering a TCP/IP Network — Apply the principles discussed here when designing, building, and running your TCP/IP network. Using these guidelines now will help you avoid headaches later.

 

Troubleshooting Common TCP/IP Problems — Need to know what's really happening on your network, not just what's supposed to be happening? Follow the general principles set forth here to begin debugging your network.

   

Understanding the Network by Michael J. Martin

 

The Networker's Guide to TCP/IP — TCP/IP is the predominant network protocol in use today. Here author Michael J. Martin discusses the key elements of TCP/IP, including what each protocol in the suite does, its sequence in the suite, and services it needs to perform.

 
 

Expert Recommends

New Essential Resources for Networking Beginners — Start your networking career off right with the "must have" resources that Thomas M. Thomas II suggests for building a strong foundation of networking knowledge.
