4th paragraph titled, "The OSI and DOD Reference Models"

At the bottom of page 3 the ISO is listed as the International Standard Organization. The ISO is actually called the International Organization for Standardization. This is a very common mistake and numerous books make this mistake. See the below URL for more information: http://www.iso.org/

Figure 1-8

In Figure 1-8 on page 12 the MAC address for the router (in step 2) is missing a dash (hyphen) between OC and 12.

Figure 1-8 (Step 2)

In Figure 1-8 in step 2 of the diagram the router's MAC address should be listed as 00-20-0C-12-34-56. Or, the MAC address listed in Figure 1-8 step 3 should be listed as 00-00-00-12-34-56.

Figure 1-8

I took a look at the rest of Figure 1-8 on page 12 and really think there are numerous serious technical mistakes that need to be addressed. For example, Why is Computer X's IP address 192.168.0.28 when that computer is on the 10.0.0.1 segment? Why is Step 5 asking for the MAC address for the IP address of 10.0.0.68? There is no computer in Figure 1-8 with the IP address of 10.0.0.68. However, Computer Y's IP address is 10.0.0.28. Why is Computer X in Step 6 responding to the router's ARP request for the IP address of 10.0.0.68? Assuming that Computer Y should have an IP address of 10.0.0.68 shouldn't the arrow in Step 8 be pointing from Computer Y's segment to the router rather than from the router to Computer Y's segment?

Figure 1-9

In my book Figure 1-9 on page 13 looks to have the formatting boxes removed from the bit values of 128 and 64. Is this supposed to be this way or is this a simple formatting error?

4th paragraph

{SAFARI Section 1.3.3 IP Subnetting; (snode=10)} Shouldn't this paragraph: We used 5 bits for the subnet portion. The fifth bit value from the right is 8. Therefore the subnet addresses are all multiples of 8: the first subnet is 201.222.5.8, the next is 201.222.5.16, etc. Be this instead: We used 5 bits for the subnet portion. The fifth bit value from the right is 8. Therefore the subnet addresses are all multiples of 8: the first subnet is 201.222.5.0, the next is 201.222.5.8, etc.

5th paragraph; The last sentence reads

The range ends with the next subnet address minus 2 I believe it should read: The range ends with the next subnet address minus 1

6th paragraph; The last sentence reads

The host range for this subnet would be 201.222.5.17 through 201.222.5.22 I believe it should read: The host range for this subnet would be 201.222.5.9 through 201.222.5.15

Example 2-1; Example BOOTP Database File (continued)

Of the 3 devicenames, 2 are the same. Is that legal? Does that mean the host has 2 NICs? Or was it a typo?

the last paragraph

If the bit is 1,the message should be send as broadcast. If the bit is 0, the message should be sent as a unicast. I think the bit is reversed as you can see in Fig 2-4, the flags bit is 0x0000- broadcast.
