Course Design & Objectives

System software is not complete without networking. The utility of computers has increased because of the ability to connect them together. The best way of learning protocols is to start with TCP/IP stack. Thorough understanding of TCP/IP stack will help you in designing any new protocol stacks.

Developing client and server applications over TCP/IP stack will make you full-fledged network programmer. Here we will deal with simple to complex implementations of servers and clients.

You will Learn

  • The way the core internet works.
  • Different protocols and their implementations.
  • How the data transfer happens between nodes

Course Outline

  • Types of networks, Ethernet Layer, ARP, RARP
  • Internet Protocol – IP address classes, Network And Broadcast Address, Loopback Address, Connectionless Delivery System, Purpose Of The Internet Protocol, Routing, Direct and Indirect Delivery, Fragmentation & Re-assembly
  • ICMP – Error Reporting Vs Error Correction, ICMP Message delivery, ICMP Message Format
  • User Datagram Protocol – Format Of UDP Messages, UDP pseudo-Header
