for combating these vulnerabilities, including an in-depth  
discussion of firewalls.

-Tom Boutell, Boutell.Com. Inc., author of the World Wide Web  

"An excellent book for anyone who wants to understand all the  
issues surrounding Web server technology."  
- Ed Krol, author of "The Whole Internet User's Guide & Catalog"  

"Probably the best book available on how to run a Web server.  
Finally, the people who were doing it first have taken the time  
to write about it. Packed full of accurate technical information  
and yet clear enough for a beginner. If there was a class on  
becoming a Webmaster, this would be the textbook."
