TCP/IP Networking – In-house Training

]The TCP/IP Networking course introduces the delegate to the main concepts of TCP/IP. It describes the structure of the TCP/IP Protocol suite and the functions and Protocols at each layer. The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • The four layers of the TCP/IP Protocol suite and the functions of each layer
  • Identify the needs of, and the purpose of each of the protocols at each layer
  • The common applications used with TCP/IP
  • Routing
  • Sub-netting an IP Address range
  • The common network commands to troubleshoot a TCP/IP Network
  • TCP/IP tracing at all levels, and diagnosing of network problems

Who will the Course Benefit?
Anyone who needs to design and implement a small TCP/IP Network. The TCP/IP Networking course is also suitable for delegates who need an understanding of TCP/IP and are required to maintain a network.

Course Objectives
To provide the skills necessary for the delegate to design, build and test a small TCP/IP Network, comprising of three subnetworks and two routers. The delegate will learn how to trace and rectify faults on the network.

Requirements
There are no formal pre-requisites, although knowledge and understanding of an operating system is essential.

Setup networks & Configure Routers & Hubs

A look at common commands used in setting up and testing an IP Network.

  • ipconfig
  • ping
  • traceroute / pathping.
  • nslookup /
  • netstat.
