PLUG Meetings

September Meeting (Meeting Archive 2017)

The meeting on 27th September 2017 is on the topic TCP/IP Networking.

A back-to-basics overview of networking hardware and protocols

This session we'll build some networks and link them togther using a mixture of hubs, switches and routers.  We'll review the basic protocols that let computers communicate over IP networks including ARP, DHCP, DNS and so and and use software like tcpdump to watch network traffic.

If you have a spare hub, router, switch and/or some spare network cables bring them along and we'll see how complex a network we can build!
