Understanding how data moves across networks with IPv4 and IPv6 is the cornerstone of CCNA studies. This course explains in detail how IPv4 and IPv6 routing operates with extensive demonstrations to explain how routers move IP packets.
The entire purpose of a router is to move packets from one interface to another. This course will explain in detail how IPv4 and IPv6 routing works. You will start by learning how ARP operates, allowing IPv4 packets to be sent in an Ethernet frame. Next, you will examine how you can get IP packets off of a network by using the default gateway configuration on a PC, and then take a look at what happens after the router receives the packet, and uses a route to forward the message. This course will describe how to specify and configure static routes for both IPv4 and IPv6. Throughout the course, you will look at troubleshooting tools, how to use them to effectively troubleshoot a network, and wrap up the course by looking at how you can set up a redundant IPv4 network using static routes.
Course Overview Hello everyone, my name is Ross Bagurdes, and welcome to my course, Routing IPv4 and IPv6. I'm a network engineer with 20 years' experience building and managing enterprise networks and teaching people about them. Understanding how routers move packets from one interface to another is one of the cornerstones of the CCNA studies, so in this course we'll examine how ARP allows an IPv4 packet to get encapsulated inside of a frame. We'll also take a look at how IPv6 resolves IPv6 addresses into Mac addresses. We're going to implement static routes in both IPv4 and IPv6 and do a lot of troubleshooting of IPv4 and IPv6 networks. By the end of this course, you'll understand in great detail how messages can leave a work station in an IP packet, get routed through a network to the destination, as well as how to configure and troubleshoot static routing on routers. Before beginning this course, you should be very familiar with network layer addressing and Ethernet operation. And from here you should feel comfortable moving onto the rest of the courses in the CCNA series. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn IP routing with the Routing IPv4 and IPv6 course here at Pluralsight.
