TCP/IP Configuration (part 2) As we continue examining the TCP/IP, we look more specifically at the role IP addressing plays for internet communications. You'll learn what an IPv4 address is, how it's distinguished from IPv6 and what the advantages are of this enhancement. We'll diagram the IP address numbering convention and help you to understand the functions or points of each segment, and how those numbers are translated into transmittable signals. You'll come to understand the balance of on/off relative to the binary language of 1's and zero's and how they are functionally calculated. When this lesson is completed, you'll know the difference what a byte is, what an octet is, and how to correctly identify the value of 00000010 relative to how bits and bytes work!
