Chapter 9.  Using and Troubleshooting TCP/IP

Chapter 9. Using and Troubleshooting TCP/IP

With the increasing popularity of the Internet, TCP/IP has rapidly become the network protocol of choice. TCP/IP is more difficult to configure than other protocols, however, leading to potential configuration errors and conflicts. Fortunately, Windows 2000 provides a relatively easy means of configuring TCP/IP as well as several utilities you can use to troubleshoot TCP/IP connections.

This chapter covers both configuration and troubleshooting for TCP/IP, starting with a look at automatic IP addressing. Windows 2000 offers two options, DHCP and APIPA, and both are explained in this chapter. You'll learn how to configure your computer to receive its IP address dynamically, as well as turn off automatic addressing for situations that don't require it.
