Book review - IP Routing
Most network administrators know something about routing, but many feel they don't know enough about it. The purpose of the newly published IP Routing is to fill the knowledge gaps that administrators may have.
IP Routing starts out with the basics -- the first chapter is titled “Starting Simple” -- and then builds like a crescendo, with each subsequent chapter introducing more complex topics. The chapter titles flag the primary topics: Routing Information Protocol (RIP), Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Routing Information Protocol Version 2 (RIP-2), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol 4 (BGP-4), and Administrative Controls. The latter chapter, only 10 pages in length, looks primarily at filtering and redistributing routes -- two topics that have recently found their way onto network administrator job descriptions.
