“For an engineer determined to refine and secure Internet operation or to explore alternative solutions to persistent problems, the insights provided by this book will be invaluable.”
—Vint Cerf, Internet pioneer
TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, Second Edition, is a detailed and visual guide to today’s TCP/IP protocol suite. Fully updated for the newest innovations, it demonstrates each protocol in action through realistic examples from modern Linux, Windows, and Mac OS environments. There’s no better way to discover why TCP/IP works as it does, how it reacts to common conditions, and how to apply it in your own applications and networks.
Building on the late W. Richard Stevens’ classic first edition, author Kevin R. Fall adds his cutting-edge experience as a leader in TCP/IP protocol research, updating the book to fully reflect the latest protocols and best practices. He first introduces TCP/IP’s core goals and architectural concepts, showing how they can robustly connect diverse networks and support multiple services running concurrently. Next, he carefully explains Internet addressing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Then, he walks through TCP/IP’s structure and function from the bottom up: from link layer protocols–such as Ethernet and Wi-Fi–through network, transport, and application layers.
Fall thoroughly introduces ARP, DHCP, NAT, firewalls, ICMPv4/ICMPv6, broadcasting, multicasting, UDP, DNS, and much more. He offers extensive coverage of reliable transport and TCP, including connection management, timeout, retransmission, interactive data flow, and congestion control. Finally, he introduces the basics of security and cryptography, and illuminates the crucial modern protocols for protecting security and privacy, including EAP, IPsec, TLS, DNSSEC, and DKIM. Whatever your TCP/IP experience, this book will help you gain a deeper, more intuitive understanding of the entire protocol suite so you can build better applications and run more reliable, efficient networks.
"What makes this book unique, in my estimation, is the level of detail and attention to history. It provides background and a sense for the ways in which solutions to networking problems have evolved. It is relentless in its effort to achieve precision and to expose remaining problem areas. For an engineer determined to refine and secure Internet operation or to explore alternative solutions to persistent problems, the insights provided by this book will be invaluable. The authors deserve credit for a thorough rendering of the technology of today’s Internet."
Praise for the First Edition of TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1: The Protocols . . .
“This is sure to be the bible for TCP/IP developers and users. Within minutes of picking up the text, I encountered several scenarios that had tripped up both my colleagues and myself in the past. Stevens reveals many of the mysteries once held tightly by the ever-elusive networking gurus. Having been involved in the implementation of TCP/IP for some years now, I consider this by far the finest text to date.”
—Robert A. Ciampa, network engineer, Synernetics, division of 3COM
“While all of Stevens’ books are readable and technically excellent, this new opus is awesome. Although many books describe the TCP/IP protocols, Stevens provides a level of depth and real-world detail lacking from the competition. He puts the reader inside TCP/IP using a visual approach and shows the protocols in action.”
—Steven Baker, networking columnist, Unix Review
“TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, is an excellent reference for developers, network administrators, or anyone who needs to understand TCP/IP technology. TCP/IP Illustrated is comprehensive in its coverage of TCP/IP topics, providing enough details to satisfy the experts while giving enough background and commentary for the novice.”
—Bob Williams, vice president, Marketing, NetManage, Inc.
“. . . [T]he difference is that Stevens wants to show as well as tell about the protocols. His principal teaching tools are straightforward explanations, exercises at the ends of chapters, byte-by-byte diagrams of headers and the like, and listings of actual traffic as examples.”
—Walter Zintz, UnixWorld
“Much better than theory only. . . . W. Richard Stevens takes a multihost-based configuration and uses it as a travelogue of TCP/IP examples with illustrations. TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, is based on practical examples that reinforce the theory—distinguishing this book from others on the subject, and making it both readable and informative.”
—Peter M. Haverlock, consultant, IBM TCP/IP Development
“The diagrams he uses are excellent and his writing style is clear and readable. In sum, Stevens has made a complex topic easy to understand. This book merits everyone’s attention. Please read it and keep it on your bookshelf.”
—Elizabeth Zinkann, sys admin
“W. Richard Stevens has produced a fine text and reference work. It is well organized and very clearly written with, as the title suggests, many excellent illustrations exposing the intimate details of the logic and operation of IP, TCP, and the supporting cast of protocols and applications.”

I disagree with the other reviewers who state that Fall retains the excellent writing style of the original. Whereas Stevens is known for succinct, clear prose that covers topics in a straightforward, readable way, Fall seems to have felt that adding verbosity was a necessary step in adding additional topic coverage.
For an example, just read the first page of the introduction for both editions. I had read the first edition a few years ago and was amazed at how Stevens made even the complex subjects easily understandable, but I paused while reading Fall's edition half-way through the introduction, asking myself "Why is this prose so difficult to understand? I don't remember the original being like this." After showing both editions to a friend of mine who is an English professor, she said that she is going to use excerpts from each book as a way to contrast good technical writing with bad technical writing (first edition, good; second edition, bad). In fact, after reading the first paragraph of the introduction of the second edition, she laughed at the quoted dictionary definition of "protocol," noting that English professors joke among themselves about how they all have to re-train high school graduates not to do this, since it is such a bad practice and so common among incoming college freshmen.
While speculating about why the editions are so different, I hypothesized that when Stevens was learning network programming, there was very little written material, and he had to figure out a lot on his own or ask many of the original authors of the software for explanations; Fall, however, had at his disposal much more written material, and his edition reads as if he is creating a compendium to summarize everything he could find.
I don't mean to make Fall feel bad about the amount of work he's done in updating Steven's excellent book; it was welcome. However, I wanted to caution potential buyers of this edition that they might be better served by purchasing a copy of the first edition for learning about TCP/IP and buying a copy of the second edition to use as a reference. Wading through Fall's edition to find the most important points of TCP/IP networking would be much harder and require much more work.
The book still retains Stevens excellent writing style. It is concise, clear and gets to the point quickly. It is filled with examples using either tcpdump or wireshark screen captures, or good illustrations explaining the header structures. The book is over 1000 pages but not wordy, very impressive.
Each chapter explains one protocol or concept, TCP being so complex is spread over multiple chapters. One thing I really appreciate with this book is that every chapter includes a section on attacks that has been employed against the protocols. This information is invaluable if you must implement the protocols yourself and makes sure you won't get hit by the same problems as people were in the past.
This book is a must have for anyone who works with TCP/IP on a daily basis and/or develops networking software. Even if you work with protocols that are not IP based this book still contains lots of really good ideas that can be reused.
1. elegant in its presentation, succinct yet detailed and understandable.
1. many topic out-dated( implementation detail has changed, some bugs were fixed, and some protocol has been changed, replaced or deprecated )
1. rich in its content, detailed discussion in the most-frequently encountered topic and touches the less-frequently encountered issue.
2. added many examples for Windows o.s, which has become the prevalent o.s for home networking
3. the additional topic on security issue at the end of each chapter is a good read for amateur like me.
1. the writing style is less understandable. Grammatically, I've seen more run on sentences, which makes it harder to read. Logically, too often is content in the future chapter mentioned in previous chapter. The unfamiliarity of the un-learned topic makes it frustrating to read through the current topic.
Obviously Stevens never covered IPv6 (in the 1st edition) though he did essentially say that it was "a twinkle in it's progenitors eyes" so to speak. Here in the second edition, we finally have a pretty comprehensive treatment of IPv6.
If you need to implement, support or troubleshoot either IPv4 or IPv6, this book is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL. If you you need to do packet analysis or configure security appliances, this book is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL. If you are implementing QoS to support converged networks such as VoIP or video, this book is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL.
I've bought and given away more than 20 copies of the first edition. I have two copies of the first edition, one at home and one in my office and I even downloaded a horrible, scanned copy as a pdf so I can search it with my laptop. I've now replaced the two first editions with two copies of the second edition.
Don't hesitate, just buy this book. It's worth a hundred other IT books (books on protocols do not age as quickly as most other IT books)and you'll go to it again and again for the rest of your technical career.
Bottom line is that if you have not studied and learned what is in the book and you are involved with carrier or enterprise networking, you are a dinosaur!
Firstly, this book should NOT be called the second edition, as it changes tremendously comparing with the first edition, in terms of the way it is talking, the way of describing concepts and process, and the organization of the knowledge content themselves, etc. It would be better if the author can just pick up a new name for this book to start its edition one, and not take advantage of the first edition's reputation. I saw other buyers mentioned the same in their comments as well. In my humble opinion, the descriptions is too tedious/verbose sometimes that make the keys of concepts inevident.
Secondly, there are MANY MISTAKES in this book. Below are some examples:
on page 39, the binary representation for the prefix /27 is incorrect.
on page 59, the description under figure 2-14 says the prefix is ff3x:0011/32, which is apparently wrong. It should be ff3x:00ff/32.
on page 85, in the figure, the 802.1p/q tag was marked as 0/2, it should be 0/4, or put the protocol ID part out of this part if you want to make it 0/2(usually it is defined as 0/4. Search the wikipedia you will see correct/much-better figure).
on page 87, the author shows a calculation for crc. Did anyone verify that? it went totally wrong in the end. How could deviding 10000 by 10011 give you a quotient 1???
At this point, I even persuaded myself to jump onto the tcp part, which I expect to see better description. However, I was frustrated again by the evident mistake below. And this is NOT a typo because the same mistake persists from here to the following pages:
In the figure on the page 596, the last ACK packet should have Seq = K + 1, NOT K. Fin sent before will consume one sequence number. If you do not believe this, check the wireshark snapshot the author pasted on page 603. You will then see the correct/expected behavior.
Anyway, the time when I read the first edition was about 8 years ago. It does not include the CWR and ECE flags for tcp, or other relatively new features. So I was planning to review the knowledge and learn some new stuffs through the second edition. But the overall low quality disappoints me much. I do not trust this book anymore, and will go to RFCs for reference.
Hopefully this review helps you, at least save you some time from being puzzled by those mistakes I mentioned.
