TCP is used in nearly every transaction users have on a network. Surfing the web, checking your email, watching a streaming video, all use TCP as the transport layer protocol. TCP has a very precise operation, and understanding how it works leads to becoming a great network troubleshooter. In this course, TCP and UDP Operation, you will learn about the TCP three-way handshake, port number addressing, and sequence and acknowledgment numbers used for reliable communication. Next, you explore at TCP's less reliable partner, UDP. Finally, you'll understand where UDP is used and why you use it. By the end of this course, you'll know how the TCP three-way handshake works, as well as how TCP uses sequence numbers to ensure successful data delivery.
Course Overview [Autogenerated] Hi everyone. My name is Ross Fogerty's and welcome to my course, TCP and UdP operation. I'm in network engineer with more than 20 years experience building and managing enterprise networks and teaching people about them. TCP transmission control protocol is a transport layer protocol and is used in nearly every transaction that occurs on a data network. Understanding its operation can lead to outstanding troubleshooting skills and is truly fundamental knowledge for every network engineer in this course will learn about TCP operation and reliable communication as well as UDP user data gram protocol, which is TCP s less reliable siblings. By the end of this course, you'll know how the three way handshake works as well as how TCP uses sequence numbers to ensure successful data delivery. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with IP addressing and network operation, which you can learn in the previous videos in this C c n a learning fast. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn the TCP three way handshake and reliable communication with the TCP and UDP operation course at Pluralsight
