Introduction to Networking


No experience is needed to enroll in this course.


This course introduces students to the fundamental concepts of computer networking that is necessary knowledge for those that currently work or intend to work in roles including helpdesk, desktop support, systems administrator or work with Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform or any other cloud provider. Most job roles in IT require a baseline knowledge of networking, which this course will provide.In this course students can expect to learn the following topics and more:Understand IPv4 addressing.Subnetting of IPv4 networks.How devices communicate on local networks and over the internet.How switches allow devices to communicate.How routers allow devices on different networks to communicate.Understand public and private IP addressing.How to troubleshoot IPv4 communication issues using various tools.How to capture traffic for examination using Wireshark.Understand how IP addresses can be automatically assigned using the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).Understand the configuration of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on Windows Servers and other types of devices.Understand how to troubleshoot Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) related issues.Understand how the Domain Name Service (DNS) communicates to resolve namesUnderstand the configuration of the Domain Name Service (DNS) on Windows Servers and other types of devices.Understand how to troubleshoot Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) related issues.Understand how to troubleshoot Domain Name Service (DNS) related issues.Understand the purpose of IPv6 and the different IPv6 address types.
