Summary

[ LiB ]

I hope you found this chapter interesting. I have a passion for history, and I feel that knowing your history is a good way of understanding why things are the way they are, what has succeeded and failed in the past, and where we can go in the future. Packet networking is a new development in the grand scheme of things, and we're still pioneering the field, so I think it is appropriate to know this material.

As I've said at the start of the chapter, you don't have to be an expert in something to use it, but it helps a lot if you at least know some of the mechanics. I hope you now understand the basics of how the IP, TCP, and UDP protocols work, and how networks work in general. This knowledge should pave the way to the next chapter, "Winsock/Berkely Sockets Programming."
