good question I was interested in learning about this too because I just got this server called NetFrame and to tell you the truth I never had any experance in running a real server before you know. A good freind of mine who works at my works help desk told me if it was a 100/10 it runs like this one at 100 and the rest at 10. I dont know how true that is. if you find out any different let me know. thanks

Your network should run at 100 exept for the one computer that has the 10 based connection. The speed of your network depends on the hub if it is 10/100 based then it will run all the computers at 10 and 100, depending on the computers card. The computers that have 10 based cards will run at 10 and the 100's will run at 100. Unless you try accessing the slower computer over the network then it will only go at 10.

right ok. thanks for the advice and information about the books and the hub!

Re: TCP/IP Books [And A Network Hub]
Just wanted to add something..... My experience after reading books like those mentioned over is they don't really explain the mystery of how packets are routed across the internet. Not in detail, anyway. If you really wanna dig deep, look for books about 'algorithm analysis' especially graph algorithms (for example shortest path algorithms). That will give you a more thorough understanding of how the stuff works. But you might need some programming experience if you're going to learn it by yourself, as it is quite difficult and hard to understand.

I have (limited) programming experience, and I am trying to get to grips with network programming to write a portscanner, traceroute, ping, whois etc. "NetTools" all-in-one program as a personal project. This is why I want to know as much as possible about TCP/IP
And I find that the best way to learn is to teach myself... to read and practice until I know exactly what's going on at any given point in the subject I'm trying to learn.

That's the only way.... If you're into programming you're gonna stumble upon algorithms and advanced data structures sometime or another. They ususally offer courses in school to when you reach a certain level, too. I think it can be useful to have someone explain stuff to you face to face, especially when I find it difficult to understand. Coming here asking questions i smart, though, as good information can be hard to find on your own. At this board it seems whatever you ask, someone has been there before and can give you hints.
If you want to write communication software I can recommend using Visual C++ if your're working on the windows platform. They have an object called CSockets if I remember correct, which gives you easy access to port-to-port programming.

To be honest I'd rather use Borland C++ builder for two reasons, firstly I've used it several times before in making a word processor for my sister to use and in doing several other projects, and secondly because its non-Microsoft-made.

Borland is good and probably has similar libraries. I'm still learning VC++ since I'm into COM+ programming and I think only Visual Basic and VC++ support COM+. I'd like to try Builder since I started programming with the Borland C++ IDE a few years ago, and I love the interface.
If you find support for COM+ in Builder, post a note!

By the way, does anyone know of any issues running Borland C++ builder 3 Pro on Windows XP??
I installed it, it worked fine for a while then the whole thing died, and BCB was the last change I made so i attributed it to that and havent installed BCB again after reinstalling XP.
