This 2nd edition book is considered one of the classic guides to Linux networking, and is another success for OReilly and Olaf Kirch & Terry Dawson, the authors. The book is aimed at experienced Linux and Unix users who are learning basic and intermediate networking skills.

Overall, the book is excellent. The book's clear explanations, clean diagrams, and concise examples once again demonstrates OReilly's mastery in the technical publishing arena.

The chapter on firewalls is exceptional, giving both ipchains and iptables coverage and useful examples to boot. I also like the chapters on sendmail and Exim, two powerful SMTP agents. Good examples setups on sendmail give the reader a solid starting point from where to proceed.

This book belongs on the shelf of any serious Linux networker.
