Andrew S. Tanenbaum, David Wetherall
Computer Networks, 5/e is appropriate for Computer Networking or Introduction to Networking courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, CIS, MIS, and Business Departments. Tanenbaum takes a structured approach to explaining how networks work from the inside out. He starts with an explanation of the physical layer of networking, computer hardware and transmission systems; then works his way up to network applications. Tanenbaum's in-depth application coverage includes email; the domain name system; the World Wide Web (both client- and server-side); and multimedia (including voice over IP, Internet radio video on demand, video conferencing, and streaming media. Each chapter follows a consistent approach: Tanenbaum presents key principles, then illustrates them utilizing real-world example networks that run through the entire book—the Internet, and wireless networks, including Wireless LANs, broadband wireless and Bluetooth. The Fifth Edition includes a chapter devoted exclusively to network security. The textbook is supplemented by a Solutions Manual, as well as a Website containing PowerPoint slides, art in various forms, and other tools for instruction, including a protocol simulator whereby students can develop and test their own network protocols.
what is the difference between UdpClient and TcpClient ? When should i use Tcp and when Udp from the point of software arhitecture ? I hope i've explained it right ..

I've started learning Computer Networking now. I've been gathering information about ports. When I searched on the internet, I could see that there were so many ports. I just want to know the use/function of ports and whether they all do the same work. Also, I see the port 8080 in most places. Is there any specific reason behind this(using 8080)?
Ports, along with IP addresses form the basic endpoint of a TCP network connection. Valid port number ranges from 0 to 65535 (16 bits) and they all do the same job.
Now they are some well-known services used on the Internet so often that it has become such a good practice to make them listen to a well-know port. Most of these services are collected in the IANA web page. You will find there that
8080 port number is mostly used by web servers and proxies (basic operation you do on internet, browsing).
More deeply, a port is a transport layer concept for communicating with a specific process in the target machine (ie: the host pointed by IP address). This is what makes possible for multiple services being run at the same host without conflicting.
A normal TCP/IP connection has two endpoints each one consisting of the tuple (IP address, port number).
Hope this helps!
I've been recommended Computer Networks, a top-down approach by James Kurose and Keith Ross. Related to that I've heard good and bad critics, I would like ask you what's your opinion. I mean, I expect to know something about this book before spend my money. Thanks!
My favorite book is by Tannenbaum.....
