Practical TCP/IP Training Course
Duration28 hours (usually 4 days including breaks)
This 4 day course involves a mixture of expository based (utilising protocol analyser traces where appropriate) and practical experiments to test and verify the operation of TCP/IP networks. The major aspects of the TCP/IP protocol stack are covered, including subnetting, supernetting and running dynamic routing protocols. TCP and UDP will be compared and contrasted, covering the end-to-end reliability and congestion avoidance capabilities of the TCP/IP stack. Some application layer protocols (HTTP, TLS, DNS, DHCP etc) will be investigated during the course. Network security in the form of TLS will be covered both from a theoretical and practical standpoint. The practical exercises are designed to augment the theory and enhance both the understanding of the underlying protocols and also the problem solving abilities of the delegates.
Suitable for anyone looking for an understanding of TCP/IP.
Course is approximately 50% practical.
- Describe encapsulation, de-encapsulation and modularity within the TCP/IP protocol stack.
- Describe, identify and explain the fields and flags within the IP header.
- Describe, identify and explain IP address classes A, B and C.
