A course focusing purely on IP addressing and subnetting. The course assumes that delegates already have some knowledge of IP addressing. In particular delegates will be able to calculate subnet numbers in seconds without using binary.
What is an IP address? What is a subnet?
Classless IP addressing. The rules of IP
addressing. Ways IP addresses are used: On
hosts, in packets, in routing tables.
Hands on Byte boundary subnetting.
Interfaces, Static vs. dynamic configuration. DHCP: Scopes, leases, relays, using multiple DHCP servers. Multihoming.
Default subnet masks, subnet notations. How to
subnet without binary. VLSMs.
Hands on Bit boundary subnetting.
Routing tables, IP address spoofing, host specific
routing, subnets in routing tables, supernets in
routing tables. CIDR. Impact of choice of routing
Hands on IP addressing plans.
IAB, IANA, RIRs, RIPE, LIRs and ISPs. PI vs. PA
Hands on Querying the RIPE database.
NAT, NAPT, NAT terms, private addresses, NAT operation, NAT architecture, NAT and security, why use NAT? NAT-ALG, Types of NAT, RSIP.
Unicasts, broadcasts, multicasts, anycasts. Directed broadcasts. Allowing broadcasts through routers.
"Excellent course. Already told colleagues to get on it."
"Plenty of content and good structure and documentation for future reference."
This structured training course seeks to build upon workbook learning through the use of group exercises, dynamic discussion and individual tasks in order to deliver an engaging and interactive module that will ensure all candidates are able to transfer their new skills into the workplace.
