Course details
Course OutlineModule 1: Reviewing the Suite of TCP/IP Protocols
This module reviews the suite of TCP/IP protocols. By understanding the function of each of the protocols and how the protocols relate to each other, you have the context for understanding network administration tasks and network troubleshooting.
Lessons
  • Overview of the OSI Model
  • Overview of the TCP/IP Protocol Suite
  • Viewing Frames Using Network Monitor
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Describe the architecture of the OSI reference model and the function of each layer.
  • Describe the four layers of the TCP/IP protocol suite.
  • Capture and view frames by using Network Monitor.
Module 2: Assigning IP Addresses in a Multiple Subnet Network
This module explains how to construct and assign IP addresses and how to isolate addressing issues associated with the IP routing process.
Lessons
  • Configuring IP Addressing for Simple Networks
  • Configuring IP Addressing for Complex Networks
  • Using IP Routing Tables
  • Overcoming Limitations of the IP Addressing Scheme
Lab : Assigning IP Addresses in a Multiple Subnet Network
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Explain how to configure IP addressing for simple TCP/IP networks.
  • Explain how to configure IP addressing for complex TCP/IP networks.
  • Describe routing protocols and how they are used.
  • Overcome limitations that are caused by class-based routing.
Module 3: Configuring a Client IP Address
This module describes how to configure an IP address for a client computer running Microsoft Windows Server 2003.
Lessons
  • Configuring a Client to Use a Static IP Address
  • Configuring a Client to Obtain an IP Address Automatically
  • Using Alternate Configuration
Lab : Configuring Hosts to Connect to a Network Running the TCP/IP Protocol Suite
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Configure a client to use a static IP address.
  • Configure a client to obtain an IP address automatically by using DHCP.
  • Configure a client to obtain an IP address automatically by using Alternate Configuration
Module 4: Configuring a Client for Name Resolution
This module describes the various types of name resolution mechanisms provided by the Windows operating systems and how to use and configure them for clients on your network.
Lessons
  • Overview of Name Resolution
  • Resolving Host Names
  • Resolving NetBIOS Names
Lab : Configuring a Client for Name Resolution
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Describe how name resolution occurs.
  • Describe how host names are used and resolved.
  • Describe how NetBIOS names are used and resolved.
Module 5: Isolating Common Connectivity Issues
This module explains how to isolate common connectivity issues and describes how to use utilities as part of this process.
Lessons
  • Analyzing Client Startup Communication
  • Determining the Causes of Connectivity Issues
  • Using Network Utilities and Tools to Isolate Connectivity Issues
Lab : Isolating Common Connectivity Issues
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Determine the causes of connectivity issues.
  • Describe utilities and tools to resolve connectivity issues.
  • Describe the client startup communication process.
