I thought I'd point out the tutorials that I used to wrap my head around IP
networks, and the source documents for training folks at the JC regarding
IP addresses, subnets, netmasks, etc...


The first two docs are "tcp-ip-intro.txt" and "tcp-ip-admin.txt", both
(c) 1988 by Charles Hedrick of Rutgers.  (Be sure and read them with a
