CompTIA NET+ Cert, Part 04 of 17: TCP/IP Addressing and Data

with Patrick Loner

In this session we'll look at a number of very important elements of computer networking. First the TCP/IP protocol has six core protocols that make up the suite, each with a different role or function to provide. You'll see how these protocols work together to provide communication. Secondly you'll look at the fundamentals of IP addressing. The components of the address were the network ID and the host ID and were similar in function to a mailing address. The subnet mask helps to make this distinction. We will look at the configuration and use of both standard and custom IP address schemes. Then we'll discuss the next generation of the TCP/IP protocol and the features that it provides Finally we'll look at various delivery techniques that designers and engineers use to account for the differences in nodes on the network that are attempting to communicate with one another. While it was a lot of information, I hope you aren’t overloaded because this is all extremely important information for you to understand.
