Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is the underlying communication mechanism of all networked devices. A number of protocols perform specific functions when facilitating network communication. In this course, you'll learn about TCP and User Datagram Protocol and connection-oriented vs. connectionless protocols. Then you'll learn how messages are packaged and source and destination port numbers. You'll learn about Network Address Translation. You'll learn about Address Resolution Protocol, ARP messages, and the ARP cache. Then you'll explore Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, the Domain Name System, Internet Control Message Protocol, ICMP and the Ping command, and Internet Group Management Protocol. Finally, you'll learn about telnet, Simple Network Management Protocol, and legacy protocols. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
