Description

Modern networks are becoming larger and more complex. In this course, Protocol Deep Dive: ICMP, you will gain clarity on the basics of ICMP to use it for network administration in many environments. First, you will learn core ICMP troubleshooting tools, such as ping and traceroute. Next, you will discover how to identify packet fragmentation and secure networks in harmony with ICMP. Finally, you will explore how IPv6 Neighbor Discovery really works while also sharpening your IPv6 ICMP troubleshooting skills. Throw in a bit of IPv6 network security and you'll be much better prepared for your next big IPv6 rollout. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of ICMP as a protocol needed to effectively operate, maintain, and troubleshoot enterprise and carrier-grade networks.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Nick Russo, and welcome to my plural site course. This is a deep dive course on ICMP. Don't be fooled. This isn't some trivial memorization course. Instead, I've created a realistic yet simple scenario involving a network ______. This provides ample opportunity to explore ICMP with contextual task oriented demonstrations. Some of the major topics we will cover include Ping and Trace Route for testing, network connectivity and troubleshooting faults, MTU Discovery Techniques to help Prevent I P Packet Fragmentation, ICMP Friendly Firewall Security Design Considerations I. P. V. Six Neighbor Discovery and the Icy MPV six messages that comprise it. After completing this course, you'll know how to use ICMP as a diagnostic tool in a wide variety of network management scenarios. Before beginning this course, I'd recommend the following prerequisite courses. An introduction toe i P v six will give you the necessary knowledge to understand and follow the basic IBV six concepts. Basic art knowledge as discussed in the first module off the AARP, Deep dive is sufficient to gain context around I. P v six Neighbor Discovery. I hope you'll join me on this journey toe Learn icmp with this protocol. Deep dive course at plural site
