Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Aaron Staines, and welcome to my course, TCP/IP and Networking Fundamentals for Sysadmins. I'm a network engineer at the County of Barry. TCP/IP powers everything network in our lives, and without it, our critical and not so critical devices would fail. I mean, a world without Xbox Live?  Come on. This course is designed to aid the system administrator in their understanding of the TCP/IP process. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include what a port actually is, how TCP is designed to function, why UDP is needed over TCP, and how to perform a quick scan with Nmap.  By the end of this course, you'll have gained an understanding of how TCP/IP is designed to work. You'll also have a better understanding of how to troubleshoot TCP/IP related issues. Armed with an understanding that every system administrator should know, you'll be well adept to handle more complex issues that arise within your network. Before beginning this course though, you should be familiar with basic computer systems. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn TCP/IP with the TCP/IP and Networking Fundamentals for Sysadmins course, at Pluralsight.
