Packet Guide to Core Network Protocols

Buy

Trying to find the perfect networking resource or textbook can be a real challenge. Sometimes they are extremely focused on one technology, and thus miss the mark. Or they are extremely broad, covering every networking idea known to man. This book is about something that all networks have in common—the core protocols. Networks have a couple of basic building blocks: routers, switches, access points, and hosts. These building blocks use a particular set of rules when forwarding bits of information from one side of the network to another.

These bits are wrapped up in a neat little package called a packet. Packets have many qualities, but one thing they never do is lie. If a packet is present, it is there because some device or network host put it there. By looking at the packets running on a network and understanding the forces (sometimes good, sometimes evil) that put them there, we can gain a deep understanding of how networks operate and what is happening at a given moment.

This book provides the structure (a.k.a. model) used to formulate network transmissions and then dives into the major protocols populating almost every single network today: Ethernet, Internet Protocol (IP), Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), and the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP). But this is not simply a description of the foundation protocols. In each chapter, the protocol is analyzed by examining topologies and the packets generated on actual networks. Wireshark is the tool of choice. It is not only powerful but the folks out at wireshark.org continue to provide it free of charge.

Almost all network devices and hosts use tables to make decisions. The packets are on the network because a table was consulted and the result indicated that a transmission be sent. So the packets are the end result. Inside these pages you will find discussion and examples of the ARP tables, routing tables, and source address tables. Tying it all together will be step-by-step descriptions of the processes used so that the reader will be able to completely trace and understand the content of the packets and the events within the communications architecture.

Stearoyl-CoA Desaturase Genes in Lipid Metabolism
Stearoyl-CoA Desaturase Genes in Lipid Metabolism

Obesity and diabetes develop as a complex result of genetic, metabolic and environmental factors and are characterized by increased lipogenesis and lipid accumulation in many tissues. Stearoyl-CoA desaturase (SCD) genes are a critical regulator of lipogenesis and catalyzes the synthesis of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), mainly oleoyl-...
