I love my copy of _TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1_, but due to its age,
its coverage of newer protocols is lacking. It covers BOOTP instead of
DHCP, and doesn't cover HTTP or SSH. I'm sure I could come up with
more examples if I tried. (Although HTTP is the super-protocol that
subsumed most other interesting protocols.) Does a book of the same
caliber exist that covers newer protocos?
