Networking Class

Postby jdwegner » Sun Aug 04, 2013 8:58 am

Hi All!

I would like to offer a Networking & TCP/IP course at FCW. The classes will need to be held on one or more Saturdays as I am usually on the road teaching during the week. Below are some topics we can cover, but please feel free to suggest others. We can keep any topic light, or dig deep as the attendees see fit.

* Number Systems
Positional Notation - Decimal Examples
Binary
Hexadecimal
Conversion from one system to another

* The OSI Reference Model
Packet Switching
Layers
Encapsulation

* Ethernet
History
Framing
Media Access Control
Speed & Duplex Settings
Physical Connections

* Internetworking Devices
Evolution
Coax, Repeaters, Hubs, Bridges, Routers, Switches, Multi-Layer Switches
The TCP/IP Protocol Suite
History

* IP Operation in an Internetwork
Packet Delivery
ICMP
TCP/UDP Functions

* Common Applications
telnet, email, file transfer, web services

* Diagnostics/Troubleshooting
ping, traceroute, protocol analyzers
cable testers

* Others?

I'm thinking maybe four two-hour classes from 12:30 to 2:30 on consecutive Saturdays. Michelle: what does our Saturday class schedule look like? When do you think we can do this?

Looks good. The format and times are up to you. At the moment, nothing past the end of August is "nailed-down"

I'm not sure that you want that many on consecutive Saturdays, perhaps put a few gaps in there.

Other topics I can think of:
Wireless - specifically covering wireless protocols, topology, equipment, setup, troubleshooting.
Security - VLANS, and higher level (SSH, SSL, etc)
Odd protocols - SIP, (something)over Ethernet, tunneling, etc.

You may float each of the topics as a separate thread to check interest.

Good ideas, all.

I'll look at my calendar and put some specific dates & topics up.

Thank you for giving the information. I would like to join the networking class as I want to learn since long time. In many classes I inquired but there was a problem of batch or timing or fees. I would immediately like to join the class.

Of all your posts, this is the only one that has not already happened (check the dates). The networking sequence is yet to be scheduled. It needs to be on Saturdays to meet the instructor's schedule. Watch this post to see when it is scheduled. It is great that you have interest in our workshops. There will be several scheduled as it gets cooler.

sheilmolson1, no offense, but all of your posts are quite similar, have poor grammar, and are quite vague. I'm starting to think you're a bot =)

I am very interested in participating in the networking classes and hope that we can start at a networking 101 level. I recommend that the class be very much a "hands-on" affair so that the participants can learn how to network various pieces of equipment, port forwarding, IP cameras etc. etc.

The first one or two classes will be mostly theory, with more of the practical stuff - home routers, WiFi, cameras, etc. for later.

Did this ever happen? If not, is there still interest? I can cover the topics JD mentioned and would be willing to attempt a small class.

So far, our theory has been "offer it and they will come". Just check the calendar to make sure you don't step on something else and let me know far enough ahead to set up notices.

I think there would be two versions of it. One for the "tech person" who wants an introduction to TCP/IP and another for the "user" who wants the basics. Either or both are good for us.
