Diagnosis tools (ping, traceroute)
The domain name system (DNS) and name resolution

IP addressing :
IP-MAC address resolution: the ARP protocol
The IPv4 classful addressing scheme
Private addresses and NAT/NAPT
Subnets and Masks
The variable length subnet mask (VLSM) technique for IP address assignment
The IPv4 classless addressing scheme: CIDR and supernetting
Protocols for IP address assignment (RARP, BOOTP, DHCP)

IPv4 network protocol :
The IP layer and its functions
The IP datagram
The error signalling protocol: ICMP

IP routing :
IP routers and packet forwarding. Routing table management.
Autonomous systems in Internet
Intra-domain routing protocols (IGP): Distance Vector and Link State

Practical Classes :
Practical classes will be targeted to the acquisition of practical skills allowing the interested students pass the exam of the preparatory modules for achieving the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT) certification. The topics will focus on the acquisition of familiarity with the platform CISCO and skills related to:
• Management of a small IP Network
• Basic configuration of a switch
• Security management at Level 2 (Port Security)
• Management of VLAN and Inter-VLAN
• Basic configuration of a router
• Configuration of static routing and dynamic routing protocols (RIP, OSPF)
• Security management at Level 3 (ACL)
• NAT and DHCP Configuration
