Summary

This chapter showed you how to implement Microsoft's TCP/IP stack in Windows 98. I spent a good chunk of this chapter taking you through various TCP/IP concepts that are crucial if you hope to understand what you're doing when you set up TCP/IP on a computer. To that end, I showed you the basics behind the two main protocols: IP (including the structure of IP datagrams and addresses, IP routing, and name resolution) and TCP (including TCP sockets, segments, and features). From there, you dove right into TCP/IP installation and configuration. I showed you how to configure TCP/IP for an adapter and for a specific Dial-Up Networking connection. To finish, I showed you how to use various TCP/IP tools, especially the PING and TRACERT commands.
