Item description for IP Addressing and Subnetting, Including IPv6 by J. D. Wegner, Robert Rockell & Mark Blanchet...
Internetworking Protocol (IP) addresses are the unique numeric identifiers required of every device connected to the Internet. They allow for the precise routing of data across very complex worldwide internetworks. The rules for their format and use are governed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) of the The Internet SOCiety (ISOC). In response to the exponential increase in demand for new IP addresses, the IETF has finalized its revision on IP addressing as IP Version 6, also know as IPng (ng = Next Generation). Key hardware vendors such as Cisco and major Internet Service Providers such as America Online have already announced plans to migrate to IP Version 6. IP address allocation within an organization requires a lot of long-term planning. This timely publication addresses the administrator and engineer's need to know how IP 6 impacts their enterprise networks
* Ideal for companies planning a phased migration from IP 4 to IP 6 * Timely publication: The IETF standard was finalized in early 1999 and will begin to be implemented in late 1999/2000. The current IP Version 4 address set will be exhausted by 2003 * The book will focus on planning and configuring networks and devices for IP 6. Specifically, it will cover how to: * Increase the IP address size from 32 bits to 128 bits * Support more levels of addressing hierarchy * Support an increased number of addressable nodes * Support simpler auto-configuration of addresses * Improve the scalability of multicast routing by adding a "scope" field to multicast addresses * Use a new "anycast address" to send a packet to any one of a group of nodes

Another Syngress milestone, complex subject in smiple words! Jan 2, 2004
This book covers every aspect of the current version, as well as what will be a widespread migration starting in late 1999. These include: increasing the IP address size from 32 bits to 128 bits; supporting more levels of addressing hierarchy and an increased number of addressable nodes; supporting simpler auto-configuration of addresses; improving the scalability of multicast routing by adding a "scope" field to multicast addresses; and using a new "anycast address" to send a packet to any one of a group of nodes. As in other Syngress books, this one makes a complex subject accessible by including appendices, summaries, extensive art, and detailed indexes. This book should have been there in your shelf!
Excellent basic book on IPv4 and IPv6 Aug 7, 2003
Not really very much more to say. If you need to know about IP addressing and subnetting get it here. A cover to cover read in two weeks and never forgotten!
Great for Beginners Mar 19, 2002
Wegner brings a clarity to the topic that I have long been looking for. A great read for those of you who are lost in the maze of TCPIP. Very clear and complete. Great section on routing protocols for beginners. When will Wegner write some more?

Solid Reference for Things IP Aug 8, 2001
Although the large text font (and relatively large price) suggests ulterior motives by the publisher, IP Addressing is a decent reference for subnetting and network addressing.
The language is kept fairly high-level, and most of the explanations are clearly written--if a little terse--with a fair number of tables and charts making the book accessible for both novices and more advanced users alike.
Since there are scant few books out there that are specifically dedicated to IP administration, this book exists as a viable option for system admins and curious readers.
