Microsoft's Windows NT operating system has become increasingly important to the business, government, and academic markets. However, as with all operating systems, the number of factors that can influence its performance is virtually unlimited. Author Gilbert Held uses his experience in constructing, configuring, and operating a number of Web-based Windows NT servers that receive millions of hits per week to explain to networking professionals how to test and troubleshoot computer problems. This book focuses on three critical Microsoft Windows NT server areas: the server itself, the local area network, and the wide area network. The first section of the book provides information detailing the basics of the server, how to examine its operation, and a number of techniques to boost the productivity of operating an NT system. Beginning with an overview of Ethernet and TCP/IP, chapters in the second section cover the operation of Microsoft's Network Monitor, Triticom's EtherVision, and Cinco Systems' WebXRay. In the third section, the focus is placed upon the wide area network used to interconnect LANs. Chapters in this section introduce the reader to basic transmission measurements, channel and circuit parameters, and other topics necessary to understand how to test and troubleshoot the WAN connection.Part I Examining the Server Chapter 1 Understanding Windows NT 3 Overview 3 Comparison to Windows 95 4 Versions ... 7 Kernel 8 The NT Executive 8 Object Manager 8 Process Manager 9 Virtual Memory Manager 9 Local Procedure Call ... 15 The Boot Loader Process 15 The OS Selection Process 18 The Hardware Detection Process 18 The Configuration ... 20 Common Errors 20 Windows NT Networking 21 The Emergency Repair Disk 22 Contents 23 Creating the Emergencyanbsp;...
