Networking Foundations: IP Addressing

via LinkedIn Learning


Learn about IP addressing, including logical vs. physical addressing, IPv4 and IPv6, and resolution techniques such as DHCP and DNS.

Understanding the foundations of networking is paramount for any IT professional. Once you have a grasp of the basics, IP addressing is the next step. In this course, Timothy Pintello walks through the essential concepts, including common numbering systems and logical vs. physical IP addressing. He also discusses the IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes, and various IP addressing resolution techniques (such as DHCP and DNS).
