Description

Windows Server 2016 isn't just a new version of Windows. It comes with a complete server and network virtualization platform that can replace much of the physical networking infrastructure in your datacenter. In this course, Implementing and Securing Windows Server 2016 Core Networking, you'll first use PowerShell to configure new Windows Server 2016 VMs. After that, you'll learn to implement IPv4 and IPv6, secure your network using IPSec and the Windows Firewall. Finally, you'll create your own software defined network and configure the distributed firewall. By the end of this course, you'll know how to configure static and dynamic IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, encrypt that traffic using IPSec, restrict traffic using both the Windows Firewall and the distributed datacenter firewall, and even implement your own software defined network! Best of all, you'll learn how to do all of this using PowerShell and group policy, so you can automate all of this if you want.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. This is Ben Piper, and welcome to my course, Implementing and Securing Windows Server 2016 Core Networking. I'm a published author and IT consultant, and in this course I'm going to show you step-by-step how to configure a production ready Windows Server 2016 network from the ground up. Windows Server 2016 isn't just a newer version of Windows Server. It includes a fully featured software defined networking stack, which makes securing your network easier than ever. In this course we're going to implement and secure a Windows Server 2016 core network from the ground up using Software Defined Networking or SDN, the distributed datacenter firewall, static and dynamic IPv4 and IPv6 configuration, the Windows firewall with advanced security, and Internet Protocol Security or IPsec. By the end of this course you'll know how to configure static and dynamic IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, encrypt that traffic using IPsec, restrict traffic using both the Windows firewall and the distributed datacenter firewall, and even implement your own software defined network. Best of all, you'll learn how to do all of this using PowerShell and group policy, so you can automate all of this if you want. Before beginning the course you should be somewhat familiar with Windows Server 2008 and later, group policy management, and PowerShell. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Windows Server 2016 core networking with the course, Implementing and Securing Windows Server 2016 Core Networking, only here at Pluralsight.
