Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Aaron Staines, and welcome to my course, Protocol Deep Dive: TCP and UDP. I'm a network engineer specializing in county IT. TCP and UDP is the most widely utilized transportation protocol in the world. And due to this, you'll surely counter issues. In this course, we'll be covering the following topics: TCP web session analysis, UDP DHCP session analysis, and MTU/MSS issues through wireless and VPNs. By the end of this course, you'll have a deep understanding of TCP and UDP. Armed with this deep knowledge, you'll be well versed against even the most cantankerous TCP and UDP issues that arise. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with a general understanding of ports. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn TCP and UDP with Protocol Deep Dive: TCP and UDP course, at Pluralsight.
