Spanning Tree is used on bridged and switched networks to prevent loops. In this video, you’ll learn how STP manages to keep your large switched network loop-free.
CompTIA Network+ N10-005
The next hop is an important part of a router. In this video, you’ll learn about the next hop and how routers get your traffic through the network using the next hop.
When a router is determining how to traverse the network, what metrics does it use to build its routes? In this video, you’ll learn how routers combine many metrics to calculate an optimal route for your traffic.
When your network routes change, how does your router handle the convergence? In this video, you’ll learn about the advantages and disadvantage of static routing and dynamic routing.
Routers can use many different methods to determine how they will route traffic. In this video, you’ll learn how routing protocols use link state, distance vector, and hybrid routing protocols.
If you’ve been working with networks for any amount of time, then you’ve probably run across the Routing Information Protocol. In this video, you’ll learn about RIP and how to differentiate between the different RIP versions.
Open Shortest Path First routing protocol is a popular choice for many network administrators. In this video, you’ll find out why OSPF has become so widely used.
Cisco’s Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol is used in routers all over the world. In this video, you’ll learn the ins and outs of this proprietary routing protocol.
Is it possible to automatically configure TCP/IP without having a DHCP server? In this video, you’ll learn about the flexibility of Automatic Private IP Addressing.
Our packets are flying around the network at great rates of speed, but do all of those devices know how to talk to each other? In this video, you’ll learn about the fundamental methods that the devices on your network use to communicate.
