TCP/IP is the globally accepted group of protocols at the core of the Internet and organizational intranets. A solid understanding of each of these protocols and how they work will give you the ability to deploy the most effective network for your organization. In this course, you will gain the essential knowledge and skills required to set up, configure, support, and troubleshoot your TCP/IP-based network.

Our expert instructors and extensive hands-on labs will prepare you to face and overcome the challenges of today's complex networks. This course - the longest running of its kind in the industry - also prepares you for more specialized courses in network security, wireless integration, Voice over IP, as well as for product-specific training such as Cisco, Nortel, and Microsoft.

Course Overview

By the end of the class students will be able to:

  • The essential elements of the TCP/IP protocol suite
  • How to install and configure TCP/IP in a live classroom network
  • The roles of various devices in a TCP/IP network
  • IP addressing and subnetting including Variable Length Subnet Masking (VLSM)
  • How to subnet an IP network and implement the resulting addresses
  • Details of ARP, IP, ICMP, TCP, and UDP - their functions and relationships
  • How to automate address assignment and name resolution using DHCP and DDNS
  • The task of IP routing and the protocols that support it, like RIP and OSPF
  • How applications like FTP, HTTP, Telnet, and others work in a TCP/IP network
  • The functions of IPv6 and its related protocols
  • The functions and capabilities of multicasting, Voice over IP, instant messaging, and email
  • The use of a protocol analyzer to isolate and troubleshoot network problems
  • How to troubleshoot problems at each layer of a TCP/IP network
