To conduct the practical session you will require:
Each student should arrange to conduct the exercises at a time convenient to her/himself. This is a self-paced set of exercises, and there will be no specific laboratory time allocated to do the 4 exercises.
The exercises naturally follow one another and build on the experience of the previous exercises. They do not however need to be attempted one after another in a single 1 hour period. The four exercises may more easily be done on 4 separate occasions. The practical exercises are designed to support students learning about TCP/IP - the notes you take will help you understand the operation of an Ethernet LAN and an IP network.
Commands you will be using include:
If you are using a UNIX PC/Workstation or MAC running OSX, you may find out more about each of these commands by looking at the manual pages. These are accessed by typing 'man xxx' where xxx is the name of the command about which you wish to know more. For example "man ping" will provide information about how to use the ping command and what options are available to control the way in which the command is used.
If you are using a PC running Windows 98,2000, XP, you may find out more about each of these commands by typing 'xxx /?' where xxx is the name of the command about which you wish to know more. For example 'ping /?' will usually provide information about how to use the ping command and what options are available to control the way in which the command is used.
