Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a protocol-based network management system. It is used to manage TCP/IP-based and IPX-based networks. Information on SNMP can be found in the Internet Request for Comment (RFC) 1157. Microsoft provides an SNMP agent, or client, for Windows NT and Windows 95.

Have you ever run in to a problem where you are attempting to troubleshoot a network connectivity issue with a network capture utility and seen only the 3 way handshake? This will happen if you are using Netmon 2.x, Netmon 3.x, Wireshark, Ethereal and most other network capture utilities. It is relatively common knowledge that this will happen when TCP Chimney offload is enabled but disabling it via the registry or netsh sometimes doesn’t always resolve the problem. The effect of TCP Chimney offload on viewing network traffic - Microsoft Enterprise Networking Team

IPSec Overview Part Four: Internet Key Exchange (IKE) > IKE Overview Internet Key Exchange (IKE) negotiates the IPSec security associations (SAs). This process requires that the IPSec systems first authenticate themselves to each other and establish ISAKMP (IKE) shared keys. A security association (SA) is a relationship between two or more entities that describes how the entities will use security services to communicate securely. In phase 1 of this process, IKE creates an authenticated, secure channel between the two IKE peers, called the IKE security association . The Diffie-Hellman key agreement is always performed in this phase.
... or, even a rocket scientist can understand DNS The goal of this page is to help you make sure that your DNS is set up properly, and help you many common errors that may exist. It will also help you if you are setting up DNS for the first time -- there is a lot of valuable information in here, and after you are done, you can walk through this step-by-step to make sure you did everything properly. Just go through the following steps in order: That should cover most common errors. For a more comprehensive way to check your DNS, you may want to check out www.DNSstuff.com and www.DNSreport.com .

Introduction to Networking In this day and age, networks are everywhere. The Internet has also revolutionized not only the computer world, but the lives of millions in a variety of ways even in the “real world”. We tend to take for granted that computers should be connected together. In fact, these days, whenever I have two computers in the same room, I have a difficult time not connecting them together! Given the ubiquitousness of networking, it's hard to believe that the field is still a relatively young one, especially when it comes to hooking up small computers like PCs.
