Product Description:

Behind every web transaction lies the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) --- the language of web browsers and servers, of portals and search engines, of e-commerce and web services. Understanding HTTP is essential for practically all web-based programming, design, analysis, and administration.While the basics of HTTP are elegantly simple, the protocol's advanced features are notoriously confusing, because they knit together complex technologies and terminology from many disciplines. This book clearly explains HTTP and these interrelated core technologies, in twenty-one logically organized chapters, backed up by hundreds of detailed illustrations and examples, and convenient reference appendices. HTTP: The Definitive Guide explains everything people need to use HTTP efficiently -- including the "black arts" and "tricks of the trade" -- in a concise and readable manner.In addition to explaining the basic HTTP features, syntax and guidelines, this book clarifies related, but often misunderstood topics, such as: TCP connection management, web proxy and cache architectures, web robots and robots.txt files, Basic and Digest authentication, secure HTTP transactions, entity body processing, internationalized content, and traffic redirection.Many technical professionals will benefit from this book. Internet architects and developers who need to design and develop software, IT professionals who need to understand Internet architectural components and interactions, multimedia designers who need to publish and host multimedia, performance engineers who need to optimize web performance, technical marketing professionals who need a clear picture of core web architectures and protocols, as well as untold numbers of students and hobbyists will all benefit from the knowledge packed in this volume.There are many books that explain how to use the Web, but this is the one that explains how the Web works. Written by experts with years of design and implementation experience, this book is the definitive technical bible that describes the "why" and the "how" of HTTP and web core technologies. HTTP: The Definitive Guide is an essential reference that no technically-inclined member of the Internet community should be without.

Product Description:

“Samba-3 by Example provides useful, thoroughly documented explanations for all aspects of a Samba deployment. They’re the same kind of patient answers I got when my dad taught me how to ride a bike without training wheels. Now, if only dad knew active Directory....”

—Will Enestvedt, UNIX System Administrator, Johnson & Wales University
“When my colleague and I were first reading John Terpstra’s Samba-3 by Example, we were impressed by how easy it was to find the chapter we wanted to implement, and the ease of following his step-by-step approach. We always felt Terpstra was there with us, for every configuration line. It was like having our own personal tutor. I always take his book to every client that uses Samba. Additionally, Terpstra does something most authors don’t, he keeps his documentation up to date. When we were doing our first implementation, he just released the update that morning; we downloaded it, printed it, and implemented it. Now, to me, that is cutting-edge technology at its best.”

—Steven C. Henry
“A cook learns to follow a recipe until he has mastered the art. This is your cookbook to successful Windows networks. I followed this recipe to migrate our NT4 domain to Samba-3, and the recipe just worked great. I could not have completed this project without the Samba-3 by Example book—it brings dry, lifeless man-pages down to the reality IT support people face.”

—Geoff Scott, IT Systems Administrator, Guests Furniture Hire Pty Ltd
“I used the book Samba-3 by Example to get started at 8:30 last night. I finished my complete PDC and it was up and running in six hours with Windows 2000 and XP Pro clients ready for work in the morning. That’s from someone who is brand new to Linux. This book is awesome!”

—Jesse Knudsen, Windows Systems Administrator
The Practical, Tested, Step-by-Step Samba-3 Guidebook Has Now Been Fully Updated!

The definitive Samba-3 guidebook has been completely updated to reflect the latest Samba releases and migration techniques. This book’s complete configuration files, step-by-step implementation instructions, network diagrams, and automated scripts make deployment a breeze—even if you've never worked with Samba before. From small office networks to enterprise environments, here are proven configurations, backed by guidance from one of the world’s most respected Samba experts, Samba Team contibutor John H. Terpstra.

This edition has added comprehensive diagnostic techniques and validation steps, as well as solutions to common implementation mistakes: everything you need to assure reliability and performance regardless of your network environment. In response to reader requests, the author has also added detailed coverage of updating existing Samba networks, as well as a practical primer on how Samba stores essential network information. Samba-3 by Example, Second Edition, covers all these scenarios, and more.

  • Deploying “no frills” servers for small, convenient networks
  • Implementing small- to-mid-sized networks using basic security
  • Implementing full-fledged enterprise network environments, with tips for enhancing availability and performance
  • Building secure, scalable networks with domain logons and roaming profiles
  • Deploying Samba in environments that utilize routers and firewalls
  • Examples that minimize desktop management requirements, using policy controls and folder redirection
  • Integrating Samba-3 with Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Active Directory domains
  • Migrating seamlessly from Windows NT 4 to Samba-3
  • Adding Samba servers as Windows domain members
  • Configuring DHCP, DNS, and OpenLDAP servers to get the most out of your Samba network
  • An example of Squid, using Windows authentication through Samba
  • Estimating server hardware, using the practical guidelines included here

If you’re a Windows network administrator responsible for deploying or managing Samba, Samba-3 by Example, Second Edition, is your indispensable resource.

Product Description:

Be more productive and make your life easier. That's what LDAP System Administration is all about.System administrators often spend a great deal of time managing configuration information located on many different machines: usernames, passwords, printer configurations, email client configurations, and network filesystem configurations, to name a few. LDAPv3 provides tools for centralizing all of the configuration information and placing it under your control. Rather than maintaining several administrative databases (NIS, Active Directory, Samba, and NFS configuration files), you can make changes in only one place and have all your systems immediately "see" the updated information.Practically platform independent, this book uses the widely available, open source OpenLDAP 2 directory server as a premise for examples, showing you how to use it to help you manage your configuration information effectively and securely. OpenLDAP 2 ships with most Linux® distributions and Mac OS® X, and can be easily downloaded for most Unix-based systems. After introducing the workings of a directory service and the LDAP protocol, all aspects of building and installing OpenLDAP, plus key ancillary packages like SASL and OpenSSL, this book discusses:

  • Configuration and access control
  • Distributed directories; replication and referral
  • Using OpenLDAP to replace NIS
  • Using OpenLDAP to manage email configurations
  • Using LDAP for abstraction with FTP and HTTP servers, Samba, and Radius
  • Interoperating with different LDAP servers, including Active Directory
  • Programming using Net::LDAP
If you want to be a master of your domain, LDAP System Administration will help you get up and running quickly regardless of which LDAP version you use. After reading this book, even with no previous LDAP experience, you'll be able to integrate a directory server into essential network services such as mail, DNS, HTTP, and SMB/CIFS.

Product Description:

Newly updated for Excel 2002, Writing Excel Macros with VBA, 2nd Edition provides Excel power-users, as well as programmers who are unfamiliar with the Excel object model, with a solid introduction to writing Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macros and programs for Excel. In particular, the book focuses on:

  • The Visual Basic Editor and the Excel VBA programming environment. Excel features a complete, state-of-the-art integrated development environment for writing, running, testing, and debugging VBA macros.
The VBA programming language, the same programming language used by the other applications in Microsoft Office XP and 2000, as well as by the retail editions of Visual Basic 6.0. The Excel object model, including new objects and new members of existing objects in Excel 2002. Excel exposes nearly all of its functionality through its object model, which is the means by which Excel can be controlled programmatically using VBA. While the Excel object model, with 192 objects, is the second largest among the Office applications, you need to be familiar with only a handful of objects to write effective macros. Writing Excel Macros focuses on these essential objects, but includes a discussion of many more objects as well.Writing Excel Macros with VBA, 2nd Edition is written in a terse, no-nonsense manner that is characteristic of Steven Roman's straightforward, practical approach. Instead of a slow-paced tutorial with a lot of handholding, Roman offers the essential information about Excel VBA that you must master to write macros effectively. This tutorial is reinforced by interesting and useful examples that solve common problems you're sure to have encountered.Writing Excel Macros with VBA, 2nd Edition is the book you need to delve into the basics of Excel VBA programming, enabling you to increase your power and productivity.
