Chapter 10

TCP/IP and IPv4 in Depth (Reference)

This chapter provides TCP/IP network reference information about network configuration files, including the types, their purpose, and the format of the file entries. The existing network databases are also described in detail. The chapter also shows how the structure of IPv4 addresses are derived, based on defined network classifications and subnet numbers.

This chapter contains the following information:
