Course Description

Every device that communicates in a TCP/IP network must have an IP address configured. The most efficient way to configure end devices in the network is to do so automatically. The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol is used for such automatic configurations. In this course, you will learn about the disadvantages of static IP configuration and the steps for autoconfiguration using DHCP. You will also learn all about DHCP, including the message format, the scopes, the renewal process, how it works in a routed network, and troubleshooting techniques.

Requirements

  • A strong foundation of basic networking concepts
