What You’ll Learn in This Hour:
• Direct and indirect routing
The infrastructure that supports global networks such as the Internet could not function without routers. TCP/IP was designed to operate through routers, and no discussion of TCP/IP is complete without a discussion of what the routers are doing. As you learn in this hour, a router participates in a complex process of communication with other routers on the network to determine the best path to each destination. In this hour, you learn about routers, routing tables, and routing protocols.
At the end of this hour, you will be able to
