Software training firm InfiniteSkills Inc. this week introduced its "Learning TCP-IP Tutorial," a course that explains the functionality and interaction of various protocols involved in computer network communication.
TCP-IP, transmission control protocol and internet protocol, is the set of communications protocols used by the internet and similar networks. TCP/IP allows for end-to-end connectivity, specifying how data should be formatted and addressed in order to be transmitted, routed, and received through a network.
InfiniteSkills' Learning TCP/IP Training Video explains the technical details involved in the process of connecting, sending, and receiving information across networks so that students can understand how systems interact and learn how to monitor an gather information about networks.
Course author Ric Messier has been an IT professional for nearly 30 years. With a primary focus in network security, he has performed numerous forensic investigations for corporations and law enforcement agencies. He is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional and a Certified Ethical Hacker, and currently teaches on the college level at Champlain and Brandeis Universities.
In InfiniteSkills' Learning TCP-IP Training Video, Messier takes users under the hood of computer networking, explaining fundamental networking protocols, email protocols, as well as some key tools for gathering information from a network.
After an overview of the course, Messier begins explaining TCP-IP Fundamentals, connection protocols, internet protocols, and how they function and interact to process web information.
The course looks at technical details such as protocol headers, handshakes, and port behaviors, going in depth with all the protocols that underlie user experience of the web.
Additional chapters cover other familiar protocols such as HTTP, SMTP, as well as the mail protocols, IMAP and POP3, among others. A chapter also covers network analysis, exploring how an understanding of these protocols can help network administrators detect intrusions, work with firewalls, and analyze network traffic.
"We'll explore everything involved in using these utilities," Messier says. "I'll explain how they work and operate as well as the information you can get from them to improve network performance."
