After you’ve installed Windows 10, configured the interface and set up your accounts, it’s time to connect. In this course, Configuring Windows 10 Connectivity and Storage, you will gain the ability to set up, deploy, and troubleshoot network connections and provide secure data storage. First, you will learn to configure IP addressing and name resolution, using both graphical and command-line tools to verify and diagnose low-level connectivity. Next, you will see how to configure Wi-Fi connections including tunneling and authentication protocols, and create the many different types of Virtual Private Networks supported in Windows. Then, you’ll discover how to deploy Wi-Fi and VPN connections to users with tools like Windows Configuration Designer and Intune. Finally, you will explore how to administer local storage using Disk Management and Storage Spaces to create logical drives and NTFS permissions and conditions to secure those drives. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to set up Windows 10 network connections and storage resources so that your systems connect reliably with the rest of your organization without increasing the risk of data breaches on local storage devices. This course aligns with the learning objectives for the new MD-100 exam to obtain certification as a Modern Desktop Administrator Associate.

Course Overview
Hi everyone! My name is Glenn Weadock, and welcome to my course, Configuring Windows 10 Connectivity and Storage. I'm a consultant and seminar leader at Independent Software, Inc in Colorado, and an author of 18 books on Windows, networking, and certification. Data in Windows networks has to be able to travel between systems, and when not in transit, it needs a proper home in terms of storage. This course covers connectivity, IP and DNS configuration, network troubleshooting techniques, mobile networking, and storage, specifically, how to configure it and how to protect it. Some of the major topics that we will cover include setting up primary and alternate IP addresses, fine‑tuning Wi‑Fi security settings, deploying connections to users, creating fault‑tolerant storage volumes, and limiting data access with permissions and conditions. By the end of this course, you'll know how to deploy and set up low‑level networking protocols, troubleshoot addressing and name resolution problems, choose among VPN types, and deliver prefabricated network connections to your users. You'll learn tips for setting up single disk and multi‑disk storage volumes, and you'll discover how to use permissions and conditions in NTFS to protect data at rest. Now, before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Windows and Active Directory basics, but no advanced knowledge is required. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about how to configure networking, Wi‑Fi, VPN, and storage with the Configuring Windows 10 Connectivity and Storage course at Pluralsight.
