Course Overview
Hi everyone, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Greg Dickinson, and welcome to my course, Protocol Deep Dive: DHCP. I'm a network engineer at a small bank in my home state of Alabama, Roll Tide. I've been playing with computers longer than I'd really like to admit. I managed to make a pretty decent career out of my passion for technology, and I'm happy to share that passion with whomever might listen. Over the last few years I've taken an interest in Cisco VoIP technologies and the networking that makes those systems work. This course is designed to help you learn all the ins and outs of one of the core protocols of networking. Many times, this protocol just works, to steal a marketing phrase, but like so many things in the world of networking, if it ever stops just working, you're in for a fun time figuring out why. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include understanding what DHCP is and how it works. The differences between DHCPv4 and DHCPv6. How to configure DHCP on both Cisco and Windows, and what to do if at all just stops working. By the end of this course, you'll have a deep understanding of how the DHCP protocol works in a production network. Before beginning the course, you really only need to be familiar with basic networking concepts such as IP addressing. Understanding of topics like the Cisco CLI will come in handy as well, but they're not required for the course. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn DHCP with the Protocol Deep Dive: DHCP course, at Pluralsight.
