IPv4/v6 Basics

TCP/IP is the protocol suite that has become the de facto standard for open systems internet working. This course provides an introduction and overview of IP-based communication. [2 days]

Course description

TCP/IP is the protocol suite that has become the de facto standard for open systems internet working. This course provides an introduction and overview of IP-based communication. The participant will learn the structure of the TCP/IP stack and the characteristics and responsibilities of the protocols at each layer. The course covers the most common internet applications and how they use IP for communication. Most of the protocols are also studied through exercises where the participants study packets exchanged between peers on live networks. 

Both the routing protocol Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and the latest version of IP, IPv6, are included with a number of demonstrations that elicitate the mechanisms of the corresponding protocols.

Course details

Who should attend?
Programmers and system designers, but also managers and others that wish to learn about TCP/IP.

Objectives
To provide a good understanding of the protocols and functions on which IPv4v6-based communication systems are built. Note that this course does not cover the programming paradigm for sockets.
