This book is awsome, I spent money on hireing people to make simple network aps for me that far exceeded the 35ish dollars spend on this book. I have yet to come across a book that "teaches" to the new commer. So far ive understood every thing the author has wrote. Im a complete new comer never touched the networking stuff(at least not got anything to work) and ive already created a couple usefull things. Alot of people are upset the source code was not included but personally I dont mind retyping it yourself helps you learn. Again if I could I would rate more stars kudos to the author.

Extremely well done

This book took me from 0 to 50 on network programming in 1 long day. It is written for someone familiar with .net and wanting to do network programming in .net -- either C# or The coverage is very broad -- starting from sockets, to email, to http/web, to encryption, network utilities, etc. Each section is short and sweet, but still specific enough with an example that you feel you can jump in and start coding this. Also, the author is clearly a practioner himself -- this wasn't just reciting the msdn library, this was the tips and tricks on what parts really matter of each aspect of networking, with real life situations. This was one of the top few, if not the best, computer software books I've read, in terms of taking me from virtually no knowledge of a subject (outside of a network theory class a long time ago) to feeling confident that I can use the material in a commercial application. Two drawbacks: - Would have been nice to be able to download the sample code form somewhere as full apps. Retyping it is a bit of a pain. - I'm using the VS 2005 beta and a couple of the namespaces like system.web.mail have been obsoleted. However, if you're trying to learn about networking and using a .net enviornment, this is a good investment of time.

Start programming right away with Networking programming in .Net

The book is very comprehensive and filled with many examples that you can copy within your code and will start working right away. All the examples in the book are explained in detailed and networking concepts are also explained.

Need source code?

Contrary to Tony's experience, I was very quickly contacted by the author and have been told by the author that the link to the source code would be given to anyone with a valid purchase of the book. An electronic copy could also be obtained through the author or his publisher. If you're in need of the source code, please send the author a request. I'm sure he's more than happy to provide it to you. Now it's time to get the book and see if it's any good. ;-)

A word from the author

The book is a complete introduction to developing network programs in both C# and VB.NET. It includes chapters on the fundamentals of network programming, TCP and UDP sockets, multicasting, HTTP and SMTP, Remoting, and Web services. Not only that, but it also covers rare, and hard-to-find practical information on Telephony, Packet capture, MSMQ, and IPv6. Whether you?re a professional network programmer, or just want to see what?s possible, you?ll find that .NET Network Programming is a complete guide to the capabilities of networking in the .NET framework.
