Good TCP/IP book

I recently borrowed "THE ILLUSTRATED NETWORK - HOW TCP/IP WORKS IN A MODERN NETWORK" from the library. While I'm nowhere near through it, it appears to be an excellent reference, both for those learning about TCP/IP and more experience readers. It covers a wide range of TCP/IP topics, including IPv6, HTTP, secure sockets layer and much more. The book was first published in 2008, so it's content is fairly up to date.

+1 to timlocke's TCP/IP Guide. Full of useful info, including IPv6. My copy is dog-eared, and has corners of certain pages folded over.

Actually, I came across that site a while ago.

I also have other TCP/IP texts, but some are getting a bit dated. However, it's always nice to have a good reference handy "on the shelf" and that book doesn't have ads. Another excellent reference is IBM's "TCP/IP Tutorial and Technical Overview". A PDF version is available for free download.
