Networking with TCP/IP

Networking with TCP/IP


Network technicians and managers, network administrators and anyone who will be involved in linking PC systems with an integrated TCP/IP network will benefit from this course.

The course can be made relevant to the Windows  2003, 2008 and 2012 Server platforms - please specify the operating system you are using when booking.


Delegates should have a keen interest in networking and ideally a good understanding of the Windows Server Operating system. Attending our Windows Server 2012 Administration and Configuration course would be a benefit.


3 days. Hands on.

Course Objectives

The course will allow the delegate to identify and configure all major aspects of TCP/IP connectivity with Windows Server. On completion of the course the delegate will fully understand the theory of TCP/IP as well as basic network features and concepts, be able to configure SNMP, NetBIOS, DHCP server and clients and implement IP routing.
