I ask for advice on short textbooks on computer networks. I am a programmer, but I’m not so good with an understanding of how networks work and protocols. I want to pull myself up.
No textbooks on 1k sheets are needed, I want to read cohesive material and quickly find out what DHCP, DNS, WINS, Gateways, DNS suffixes are, and so on. Of course, I could just go through Wikipedia and read the definitions, but it would not be completely connected, I want to know what happens from the moment a patchcord is plugged into the network card and until the Internet is accessed, what the OS does and what sometimes it takes manual. If they have met, please advise.
Thanks a lot in advance!
