4This document describes the RTEMS specific parts of the FreeBSD TCP/IP
5stack.  Much of this documentation was written by Eric Norum
6(eric@skatter.usask.ca)
7of the Saskatchewan Accelerator Laboratory
8who also ported the FreeBSD TCP/IP stack to RTEMS.

10The following is a list of resources which should be useful in trying
11to understand Ethernet:
12
13- *Charles Spurgeon’s Ethernet Web Site*
14  "This site provides extensive information about Ethernet
15  (IEEE 802.3) local area network (LAN) technology. Including
16  the original 10 Megabit per second (Mbps) system, the 100 Mbps
17  Fast Ethernet system (802.3u), and the Gigabit Ethernet system (802.3z)."
18  The URL is:

21- *TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1 : The Protocols* by
22  by W. Richard Stevens (ISBN: 0201633469)
23  This book provides detailed introduction to TCP/IP and includes diagnostic
24  programs which are publicly available.
25
26- *TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 2 : The Implementation* by W. Richard
27  Stevens and Gary Wright (ISBN: 020163354X)
28  This book focuses on implementation issues regarding TCP/IP.  The
29  treat for RTEMS users is that the implementation covered is the BSD
30  stack with most of the source code described in detail.
31
32- *UNIX Network Programming, Volume 1 : 2nd Edition* by W. Richard
33  Stevens (ISBN: 0-13-490012-X)
34  This book describes how to write basic TCP/IP applications, again with primary
35  focus on the BSD stack.
