Description

Looking to boost your knowledge of Linux networking and abilities as a system administrator? This course, LFCE: Advanced Linux Networking, teaches Linux networking topics that will take your sysadmin skills to the next level. First, you will learn network topologies and the OSI Model. Next, you'll learn how data moves through networks with Internet Protocol, including addressing, subnetting, ARP, DNS and routing packets. Then, you'll learn how to get data to its destination reliably with TCP internals. Finally, you'll learn to troubleshoot network connectivity issues. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Linux networking needed for design and troubleshooting.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Anthony Nocentino and welcome to my course, LFCE: Advanced Linux Networking. I'm the founder and principal consultant at Centino Systems where we focus on developing scalable systems for our customers. Are you looking to level up your career with the Linux Foundation Certification or maybe just round out your knowledge of Linux Systems. If so, keep listening. In this course, we're going to establish a solid foundation on how Linux Networks work and prepare you for the deep level of knowledge needed to pass the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer exam. Some of the major topics that we will cover include Network Topologies and the OSI Model diving into topics like addressing, subnetting, ARP, DNS and routing. And then, investigating TCP internals. By the end of this course, you'll be able to open up a packet sniffer and diagnose networking issues quickly and confidently because you'll know how networks work. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with basic operating system commands and installing a Linux based operating system in a virtual machine. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Linux Networking with the LFC: Advanced Linux Networking course at Pluralsight.

Introduction and Lab Setup
Hello, this is Anthony Nocentino with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course, LFCE: Advanced Linux Networking. This is the introduction and lab setup module. In this module, we're going to give you a very brief introduction into the Linux Foundation, and the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer, LFCE Certification, as well as the Redhat Certified Engineer certification. We're also going to show you how to set up the lab environment for this course. In a series of courses we plan on covering the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer LFCE learning objectives. Let's get started.

Network Topology Fundamentals and the OSI Model
Hello, this is Anthony Nocentino with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course, LFCE Advanced Linux Networking. This module is Network Topology Fundamentals and the OSI Model. In this module, we're going to give you a brief introduction into the core concepts of networking. We're going to dig into topology, or how networks are laid out, and also where the OSI model fits in your enterprise and is the foundation of our troubleshooting methodology later in this course. In this series of courses, we plan on covering the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer, LFCE, learning objectives. Let's get started.

Internet Protocol - Addressing and Subnetting Fundamentals
Hello, this is Anthony Nocentino with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course LFCE, Advanced Linux Networking. This module is internet protocol, addressing and subnetting fundamentals. In this module, we're going to introduce you to how networks are addressed and how they're broken up into logical segments, so that traffic can move in between them. In this series of courses, we plan on covering the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer, LFCE, learning objectives. Let's get started.

Internet Protocol - ARP and DNS Fundamentals
Hello, this is Anthony Nocentino with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course, LFCE Advanced Linux Networking. This module is Internet Protocol, ARP and DNS Fundamentals. In this module, we're going to learn how machines are found on a LAN with ARP, and how you can ask for a resource by name with DNS. In this series of courses, we plan on covering the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer, LFCE, learning objectives. In the previous modules, we learned how to identify hosts with IP addressing and subnetting. Let's keep moving forward in our sequence of IP modules and cover ARP and DNS.

Internet Protocol - Routing Packets
Hello, this is Anthony Nocentino with Centino Systems, welcome to my course, LFCE Advanced Linux Networking. This module is internet protocol routing packets. In this module, we're going to bring it all together and show you how data gets where it needs to go with IP routing. In this series of courses we plan on covering the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer LFCE learning objectives. So far we've covered network topologies, addressing and subnetting, ARP and DNS, now let's get in to our last module in the IP sequence, getting data where it needs to go with routing packets.

Internet Protocol - Routing Packets with Linux
Hello, this is Anthony Nocentino with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course, LFCE and Advanced Linux Networking. This module is Internet Protocol Routing Packets with Linux. In this module, we're going to bring it all together and show you how your data gets where it need to go on a Linux operating system. So here we are in our course overview. We just finished up routing packets and now we're going to hop into routing packets with Linux.

Investigating TCP Internals
Hello, this is Anthony Nocentino with Centino Systems, welcome to my course, LFCE: Advanced Linux Networking. This module is, Investigating TCP Internals. In this course so far we've learned how data moves around an IP network, and now it's time to get that data into our applications with Investigating TCP Internals. In a series of courses, we plan on covering the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer, LFCE, learning objectives. We've learned how networks were laid out with topologies, and the core abstractions with the OSI model. We also discussed how data traverses our network with our sequence of modules on RP. Now it's time to get into reliable data transmission, and getting data in and out of our applications with Investigating TCP Internals. Let's get started.

Troubleshooting Network Issue
Hello, this is Anthony Nocentino with Centino Systems. Welcome to my course, LFCE advanced Linux networking. This module is Troubleshooting Network Issues. In this course, so far we've learned how data moves around IP networks, and how it gets there reliably with TCP. Now it's time to put that knowledge to the test with troubleshooting networking issues. In this series of courses that we plan on covering, the Linux Foundation Certified Engineer, LFCE, learning objectives. So here we are at the end of the course, and we've covered things like network topologies and the OSI model. We went through how IP moves data around networks and how TCP gets it there reliably. Let's wrap it up strong with troubleshooting networking issues.
