Course description

This course is full of practical information and knowledge that you can use every day. Assigning IP addresses is of prime importance and you will know what can be done both statically and dynamically using a protocol like DHCP. You also know that name resolution services like DNS provide the ability for users to utilize user friendly names in place of numerical IP addresses. The user doesn’t have to know what is going on behind the scenes but you do, and you need to understand how to troubleshoot it if things don’t go right. You will learn about various TCP/IP protocols and utilities that are used for both configuration as well as diagnosis. You will be able to put this knowledge to use right away in any network that you encounter.


This course assumes the user has some experience with computer hardware, software, and understands the concept of a computer network. The user should have viewed CompTIA NET+ Cert: TCP/IP Addressing and Data before taking this course.
