Windows 2000 TCP/IP
Microsoft has adopted TCP/IP as the strategic enterprise network transport for its platforms. Microsoft 32-bit TCP/IP for Microsoft® Windows® 2000 is a high-performance, portable, 32-bit implementation of the industry-standard TCP/IP protocol. This chapter provides additional technical details about the Microsoft 32-bit TCP/IP protocol as implemented in Windows 2000. The Windows 2000 TCP/IP protocol driver described in this chapter is shared by all Microsoft 32-bit TCP/IP protocol stacks, including TCP/IP for Microsoft® Windows NT® Server, Microsoft® Windows NT® Workstation, Microsoft® Windows® 95, and Microsoft® Windows® 98. However, there are small differences in implementation, configuration methods, and available services.
This chapter is intended for network engineers and support professionals who are already familiar with TCP/IP or who have read the "Introduction to TCP/IP" in this book and the product documentation about TCP/IP supplied with Windows 2000.
