+- *TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 2 : The Implementation*
+ by W. Richard Stevens and Gary Wright (ISBN: 020163354X)
This book focuses on implementation issues regarding TCP/IP. The
treat for RTEMS users is that the implementation covered is the BSD
stack with most of the source code described in detail.
