Lab Duration

It will take approximately 30 minutes to complete this lab.

Exercise 1 - Preparing the Lab

In order for the lab to function correctly and to have the desired results, it is important for you to complete this prerequisite task before beginning with Exercise 2.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Access Windows Firewall

Exercise 2 - Troubleshooting ICMP Related Issues

ICMP, short for Internet Control Message Protocol, is an essential part of an IP network. Various nodes on the network implement ICMP to send out error messages about issues on the network. These issues include unavailability of a service on the network, or inaccessibility of a node or a device. Some troubleshooting tools and applications, such as ping and traceroute, implement ICMP. ICMP normally does not carry data on the network.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Troubleshoot ICMP Related Issues

Exercise 3 - Understand How ARP Works

ARP, short for Address Resolution Protocol, translates the IP address of a device to its physical address also known as an Ethernet address/MAC address. It is one of the main components of the TCP/IP protocol suite. Misconfigured ARP can lead to random connectivity issues across the network. You can analyze the ARP cache to troubleshoot and resolve issues including address conflict or IP address duplication on a network.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Explain How ARP Works
