Unix Network Programming, Volume 1: The Sockets Networking API (3rd Edition)
This is THE guide to UNIX network programming APIs. Whether you write Web servers, client/server applications, or any other network software, you need to understand networking APIS-especially sockets in greater detail than ever before. You need UNIX Network Programming, Volume 1, Third Edition. In this book, the Authors offer unprecedented, start-to-finish guidance on making the most of sockets, the de facto standard for UNIX network programming with APIs - as well as extensive coverage of the X/Open Transport Interface (XTI).
Continuing the work of a legend in the field of CS

It would be difficult to put value on a book that has been a classic text and a reference in academia and in the real world in the context of Network Programming for over a decade. Richard Stevens published the ever-popular Unix Network Programming [UNP] back in 1990, followed the second edition in 1998. With a dedication to the memory of R. Stevens, the UNP book found itself two new authors, Bill Fenner and Andrew M. Rudoff, who would write the third edition of this book. The third edition has many updates, a new look and feel and many of new chapters that cover the topics more applicable these days. In my opinion, it is still the most valuable and profound text in the context of Network Programming. For those of us who have the first two editions of this book, the third edition has the following changes in effect: ? IPv6 updates. In the second version of the book, IPv6 was merely a draft and the sections covering IPv6 has been updated to take these changes into... read more

This book, as with all other Stevens books, can be used as either a tutorial or reference. The depth of information here is unparalleled. I continue to be impressed with the detail in this book. Fenner and Rudoff have done an outstanding job of maintaining quality and tradition this invaluable reference. Avid Stevens fans will not be disappointed.
3rd edition updates include: *IPv6 added *POSIX 1003.1-2001 added *XTI dropped *T/TCP dropped *SCTP added *Key Management Sockets for use with IPSec Added *Machines used for examples updated *Other material updated where appropriate (including new functions)
I bought this book a year ago along with Stevens "Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment" I read most of this book as a tutorial on network programming. I continue to use it as reference. I also read all of APUE. Since then I've added TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1 and UNIX Network Programming, Volume 2 to my... read more
Invaluable UNIX Programming Resource
By Russ Woodman - January 25, 2004
While not a C programmer by any means, I decided to take some time and tackle the UNIX Network Programming book. I found that lots of early college classes came back to me as I forged a few pages in. It was clear from the very beginning that this book was going to be a very detailed study on all aspects of IP networking as it relates to UNIX programmers. Even for someone who isn't initiated in the topic or really even interested, it was quite an experience to read through the hundreds of flow charts and detailed examples of C code showing how to perform all kinds of interesting network tasks.From a simple HTTP GET to detailed network file and connectivity operations, including TCP and UDP packets, ports, sockets and so on, there is a place in the book for each kind of network programming service. There is also a fair amount of text dealing with debugging techniques, allowing even those programmers who are experienced in their craft to find new ways to ferret out the problems in... read more
