Network programming book


Could someone please suggest me a good book to learn
network programming.

I have been programming in C#/VB.NET/VB 6.0 and have
also used a bit of C++ (not MFC/ATL/COM)
I am a total novice when it comes to networks and I don't
even know the basics.

I need a book which teaches me everything I need to get
started with programming in networks, I dont mind if the
book is not using C#/VB

thanks

Patty,

Personally, I think that this book is not a good fit for two reasons.
The first is that the book deals with remoting, which is about making remote
method calls, and not network programming. The second is because I don't
believe that the book is a good one, to be honest. The code samples were
not correct, and were incomplete.

I think that a better discussion of programming occurs in Juval Lowy's
book "Programming .NET Components". There is an excellent chapter on
remoting in there.

But, in the end, you shouldn't be using Remoting anyways. It does not
provide all of the runtime aspects of other frameworks, such as Enterprise
Services, and Indigo.

Hope this helps.

Have a look at .NET remoting - it's very good.

Richard Stevens "Unix Network Programming" is probably *the* source on
network programming. Depends though whether you want to learn
fundamental concepts or just get hands-on knowledge in some specific
language of the day.

I don't know if it is still available but ".Net Network Programming" by Wrox ISBN 1-86100-735-3 covers pure network topics such as sockets, streams, TCP, UDP, HTTP, Email, etc.
