Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training

This 2-day workshop provides participants both conceptual understanding and hands-on experience in deploying TCP/IP Network applications. This unique category of applications makes it practical and convenient for users to access a TCP/IP data network's resources. The workshop explores the vital TCP/IP services that run behind the scenes in order to make TCP/IP networks workable and practical: Domain Name Service (DNS), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

This workshop is presented in classroom lecture/discussion style with hands-on labs to reinforce the lecture material. Students completing the class emerge with hands-on experience along with a workbook designed to serve as a practical reference tool.

Who Should Attend

Personnel responsible for internetworking corporate resources: data center personnel, technical and communications managers, system and software engineers, LAN/WAN and network support technicians, systems and network analysts and designers, sales representatives and application engineers, information managers and LAN/WAN specialists, and application programmers who need a working understanding of LANs and TCP/IP.


General familiarity with data networks and the OSI Model.

Workshop Objectives
  • Explain where these applications fit in the OSI Model, and how they relate to other applications and lower layers.
  • Use the OSI Model as a troubleshooting tool, and as a way to quickly grasp new terms and technology.
  • Build a running network using all three protocols we deploy in class (DHCP, DNS, and SNMP).
  • Install DNS in Cisco routers, Windows workstations and servers.
  • Activate SNMP network manager software and element agents in routers and Windows workstations.
  • Explain how DHCP works and itemize its benefits and limitations.
  • Compare DHCP to DNS and see where they complement and conflict with each other.
  • Understand DNS address resolution, what forms it can take, where it is used and why it is so important.
  • Use Windows-based TCP/IP testing and monitoring tools.
  • Analyze DNS, DHCP and SNMP packets.
  • Illustrate how the five functions of TCP/IP all work together to form the world's most popular network protocol suite.
