About this book

The Definitive Guide to Linux Network Programming offers a clear, concise treatment of creating clients and servers under the Linux operating system. This book assumes that you know C and have experience developing code on Linux, but it provides everything else you'll need as a programmer for real-world network programming.

Whether you're a Windows developer looking to expand to Linux, or you're a proficient Linux developer looking to incorporate client-server programming into your applications, this book has a wealth of invaluable information to suit your needs.

This book covers design, implementation, debugging, and security. You'll also learn about the many kinds of socket types, sessioned versus sessionless protocols, and encryption, as well as how to build a custom protocol, how to use SSL, and how to tunnel data.
