Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, which are assigned to network-equipped devices that are part of a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)/IP-based network, allow computers and other resources to communicate with each other. Explore the basics of IP addressing and networking concepts such as Domain Name System (DNS) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Begin with an overview of DNS and its benefits. Then take a closer look at the DHCP, its features, and the concept of reservations. Next, discover the use of virtual private networks (VPNs) and look at virtual local area networks (VLANs). Finally, explore the various networking tools including crimpers, Wi-Fi analyzers, and loopback plugs. This course will prepare learners for the CompTIA A+ Core 1 (220-1101) certification exam.
