Book Description

In just 24 sessions of one hour or less, you’ll discover how to implement, monitor, and manage a TCP/IP network–even the latest cloud-based and IPv6 networks. Using this book’s straightforward, step-by-step approach, you’ll uncover the essentials of TCP/IP and put that knowledge to work through practical examples. Each lesson builds on what you’ve already learned, giving you a strong real-world foundation for success. Expert author and network engineer Joe Casad guides you from the basics to advanced techniques—including TCP/IP’s architecture, layers, subnetting, CIDR, routing, security, utilities, remote access, web services, streaming, and much more.

Practical discussions provide an inside look at TCP/IP components and protocols.

Step-by-step instructions walk you through many common tasks.

Q&As at the end of each hour help you test your knowledge.

Notes and tips point out shortcuts and solutions and help you steer clear of potential problems.
