Course Description

Network traffic doesn’t all need to be transported across the network in the same way. This course explores the operations of TCP and UDP and helps you understand the differences between connection-oriented and connectionless protocols. You will learn when TCP and UDP are used and how each protocol connects end devices across a network. We’ll discuss how port numbers are assigned and used, and how they are combined with IP addresses to form sockets. Finally we’ll cover network address translation, which allows you to preserve IP addresses and isolate your internal address space from public viewing.
