Networking 101

This "Class" started out in April of 2007 when I noticed that quite a lot of people in the Slackware community didn't know much at all about TCP/IP. This shocked me quite a bit, as everyone used the Internet heavily, but not everyone knew much about the underlying protocols that they used everyday. Many of these people were guys that I respected for knowing lots of things that I have never had the time or inclination to learn. So I held an impromptu "class" in the #slackware channel of irc.oftc.net to explain some of this.

The actual meat is available as ASCII text and can be found here. Recently I reprised this class for my current employer and it was published among their public white papers in HTML format. If you prefer that document style, it can be found here.
