Configure IP Addressing and Windows Services in Windows Server 2008
Overview/Description Target Audience Prerequisites Expected Duration Lesson Objectives Course Number Overview/Description
Internet Protocol Version 4, or IPv4, is the current, widely-deployed version of the Internet Protocol and is slowly running out of addresses to assign. Its successor, IPv6, allows greater flexibility in assigning IP addresses due to a deeper address space. Windows Server 2008 installs and enables IPv6 by default, including Windows 2008 DHCP by way of DHCPv6. This course provides an overview of networks, hosts, subnet masks, and how subnetting plays a role in efficient network management. It explores some of the more advanced points of network management including IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, static and dynamic DHCP, and the configuration of various DHCP options.
