Network Troubleshooting and Tools
In this course, we will learn basic network troubleshooting using command line tools in a Windows environment. We will learn to verify local network configuration and test connectivity from our local system to other network resources.
After this troubleshooting is completed, we will also look at how to verify other network connectivity issues such as domain name resolution, route tables, and how to test ports and protocols.
