Craig Hunt's TCP/IP Network Administration (http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596002978) was invaluable to me when I first started building servers and network applications. I'd browse the entire O'Reilly library (http://oreilly.com/pub/topic/serveradmin); many of their books are the standard references in their fields.

Try the books of W. Richard Stevens.
I think there is one available freely on the web.

You can also try Beej's Guide to Network Programming.

If you are not interested in low-level networking and
programming it is okay to only understand a few basics
and use a (high-leve) network library that hides
all the details.
(Check what other people use like free network games or ...)
