Overview

This lab is part of a series of lab exercises designed to supplement coursework and provide students with a hands-on training experience based on real-world applications. This series of lab exercises is intended to support courseware for CompTIA Network+® certification.

This lab will review protocols that operate at the internetwork and transport layers of TCP/IP. These protocols are internetwork layer protocols such as ARP, ICMP, and IP and at the transport layer, UDP and TCP. Students will review IP address configuration, discover facts about network communication using ICMP and the ping utility, and will examine the TCP/IP layers and become familiar with their status and function on a network.

This lab includes the following tasks:

Use network utilities and protocols from the TCP/IP suite Use a network packet analyzer, Wireshark®, to examine the ARP protocol Capture and analyze transport layer packets
