Part I: Networking Basics > Network Protocols: Real and Imagined

Chapter 5. Network Protocols: Real and Imagined

In this chapter

  • Network protocols and data communication

  • Understanding the OSI Conceptual Model

  • The roles of the OSI layers

  • Understanding real-world protocol stacks

  • Exploring the TCP/IP stack

  • Understanding Novell’s IPX/SPX network protocol stack

  • Using NetBEUI on small networks

  • Understanding the AppleTalk protocol stack

So far, we’ve taken a look at the types of networking, the hardware considerations for building a network, and the different aspects of network architectures and network connectivity media. In this chapter we will concentrate on issues related to how computers actually communicate on the network. We’ll cover the theoretical side of network communication and then take a look at the different protocols that are actually being used to transfer data on a network.
