Routers play a major role in any network and their effective configuration is vital in ensuring they run efficiently. The objective of this course is to provide a basic understanding of the configuration of network devices. Starting with the basics, this course will provide an overview of network devices and components. Delegates will have an opportunity to get hands-on experience in logging on to equipment and using configuration files. The course will look at the configuration of DHCP, NAT and PAT. Delegates will then work through some solutions to network security issues. The day will end with an opportunity to carry out further configurations on a router.
The course requires no previous experience in using or configuring routers, but assumes a degree of familiarity with basic telecommunications concepts such as serial/leased lines and Ethernet. This may be achieved by attending Janet’s ‘Basic Networking’ course. Experience with using a computer and a standard web browser is required.
