Implementing Cifs

Aug 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Forward Writing a book is hard-;writing a good book is very hard, and describing an area as complex as CIFS is a nightmare. The biggest pleasure of being involved with the production of this reference is in the clarity and depth of the end result-;the impossible has been achieved, for the benefit of all involved in this protocol. CIFS is an important protocol-;indeed, in Windows networks it could be considered as important as TCP/IP, as almost all communication between Windows machines can flow over it. It provides file and print services, and, among other things, is a carrier for Remote Procedure Call and NT Domain services. When I came to CIFS in 2001, it was out of an interest in the Samba project-;an Open Source implementation that I was running on Linux-;where I soon became a specialist in Authentication....


Microsoft Windows XP (Inside Out Series)
Ed Bott

October 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Ed Bott and Carl Siechert have combined their considerable talents for producing user-level documentation in creating Microsoft Windows XP Inside Out. One of the most carefully researched books on Windows XP to date, this large volume has all the information and procedures most everyday users of the operating system will want. With its nicely formatted how-to instructions, detailed documentation of command-line commands, intelligent explanatory text, and broad scope, this book makes a great reference for a family or business that uses Windows XP extensively. Even the illustrations are more helpful than usual, largely because the publisher has gone to the trouble of annotating many of them with pointers and labels.

Bott and Siechert deal with the most controversial features of Windows XP, notably product activation, in a...

Managing Afs
Richard Campbell
0138027293
Feb 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Designed to handle terabytes of data and thousands of users distributed across large networks, the Andrew File System (AFS) works as a Unix and Windows NT add-on that replaces the standard Network File System (NFS). The basic idea of AFS is that all users of a network get a common picture of the file system even though it represents data that's stored on many different machines. Originally developed at Carnegie Mellon University and now commercially promoted by Transarc Corporation, AFS has a solid presence in very large commercial networks. Its popularity seems likely to trickle down to midsize organizations as businesses of all kinds become more network-intensive.

Campbell's book takes the ponderous set of AFS documentation and distills it into a collection of task- and question-oriented segments. The book opens with an...

Shell scripting skills never go out of style. It's the shell that unlocks the real potential of Unix. Shell scripting is essential for Unix users and system administrators-a way to quickly harness and customize the full power of any Unix system. With shell scripts, you can combine the fundamental Unix text and file processing commands to crunch data and automate repetitive tasks. But beneath this simple promise lies a treacherous ocean of variations in Unix commands and standards. Classic Shell Scripting is written to help you reliably navigate these tricky waters. Writing shell scripts requires more than just a knowledge of the shell language, it also requires familiarity with the individual Unix programs: why each one is there, how to use them by themselves, and in combination with the other programs.

Windows XP for Dummies, Second Edition
Andy Rathbone
0764573268
September 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Windows XP for Dummies does a good job in its role as the flagship of the Dummies line, providing Windows novices with a guided introduction to Microsoft's latest and most feature-rich operating system for everyday computer users. Its treatment of computer, Windows, and Internet fundamentals is among the best on the market, and author Andy Rathbone has an appealing way of writing that's simultaneously fun and detail-rich. If you're a Windows novice--meaning you don't know how to undelete a file that's been sent to the Recycle Bin, or what a Web browser is, or what it means to "cut and paste" text--you will get a lot out of Rathbone's work.

Some aspects of this book could be better, such as the part of the networking chapter that calls for an Ethernet hub without noting that a switch, though possibly more expensive, would...

The Design and Implementation of a Log-Structured File System
Mendel Rosenblum
0792395417
Jan 1995
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The Design and Implementation of a Log-Structured File System presents a new technique for disk storage management. A log-structured file system writes all modifications to disk sequentially in a log-like structure, thereby speeding up both file writing and crash recovery. The log is the only structure on disk; it contains indexing information so that files can be read back from the log efficiently. In order to maintain large free areas on disk for fast writing, the log is divided into segments and a segment cleaner to compress the live information from heavily fragmented segments. This book presents a series of simulations that demonstrate the efficiency of a simple cleaning policy based on cost and benefit. The author has implemented a prototype log-structured file system called Sprite LFS; it outperforms...


Creating Web Pages for Dummies
Bud E. Smith
0764573276
October 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Creating Web pages isn't just for nerds anymore--far from it. You can't get far in any hobby without participating in its Web community; even the smallest businesses need good-looking, functional Web sites. Those facts mean you must be able to do your own site-building work, and Creating Web Pages for Dummies exists to share the skills you need to learn. This book goes a long way toward explaining Web publishing to newcomers to the field. It is not, however, much of an introduction to Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) or any other site development language, and you'll soon find yourself wishing for more information on the low-level code that makes your pages look and act the way they do.

Instead of focusing on HTML (see Elizabeth Castro's excellent HTML 4 for the World Wide Web for that), this book emphasizes Web...

Unlocking the Files of the FBI
Gerald K. Haines
0842023380
Jan 1993
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
While the Freedom of Information Act allows considerable access to FBI files, anyone who wishes to access those files--scholar, journalist or interested citizen--must go fishing in the dark, unless the researcher knows precisely what sort of information is in the different files, where to look and what to request. This book provides the necessary guidance, including an overview of FBI classifications, a profile of each category, descriptions of some of the cases and the current location of each set of records. Haines and Langbart have both worked for the National Archives, Haines specifically on FBI records, and they have a wealth of expertise on how these particular records are filed.

DNS and BIND, Fourth Edition
Paul Albitz, Cricket Liu
0596001584
April 16, 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The Domain Naming System (DNS) is a glorious thing. It takes familiar Internet network and machine names (like "amazon.com") and converts them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (like "208.35.218.15") that are meaningful to routers and therefore useful for identifying the machine you want to reach. What's amazing is that DNS enables someone in Germany to refer, by name, to a computer in Mongolia even if no one in Germany has ever accessed the distant machine before. It's pretty much self-configuring, too: No human effort in Germany is necessary to make the Mongolian machine reachable by name. DNS and BIND explains how DNS works better for this than any other piece of documentation, printed or otherwise. The work of Paul Albitz and Cricket Liu, now in its fourth revision, has long been considered a classic among systems...
