Chapter 31. Implementing TCP/IP for Inte... > Installing and Configuring TCP/IP

Installing and Configuring TCP/IP

TCP/IP is a complex set of protocols (I've really only scratched the surface here), but the good news is that it's much easier to implement than it is to understand. With this chapter's background information in hand, after you've installed the protocol, configuring a computer to use TCP/IP becomes a simple matter of plugging in a few values. Here's what you need to know before getting started:

  • Whether your network or ISP uses dynamic IP addressing.

  • If dynamic addressing isn't used, the IP address that has been assigned to your computer and the appropriate subnet mask for your network.

  • The IP address of your network's default gateway.

  • The host name of your computer and the domain name of your network.

  • Whether your network uses DNS. If it does, you need to know the IP address of one or more DNS servers.

  • Whether your network uses WINS. If it does, you need to know the IP address of your WINS server.

  • Which network clients and services use TCP/IP. For each of these clients and services, you need to bind the TCP/IP protocol.
