The goal of this course is to inform about network services and
relevant protocols and to learn students how to administrate
network applications and computer networks. Practical part of the
course deals with TCP/IP network programming using BSD sockets.
TCP/IP network programming. Addresses, address translation,
configuration of DNS and DHCP. Mail services - email, news,
administration of mail services. File services, directory services.
Print services and time synchronization. Network configuration and
management. Traffic monitoring, network administration. Network
security, secure application. Multimedia and networking. New trends in
computer networking. Protocol IPv6 - theory and practice.
|Knowledge and skills required for the course:|
- Basics of operating systems Unix and Windows.
- C programming.
- Reading and understanding texts written in technical English.
- Computer network architecture (ISO/OSI, TCP/IP).
- Overview of link layer protocols and network layer protocols.
- Addressing - types of addresses, classes of IP addresses, broadcast, netmask, CIDR etc.
|Learning outcomes and competences:|
Students are able to configurate network connection. They have an
overview of basic network services adn are able to administrate DNS,
DHCP, mail services etc. They can program network applications using
BSD sockets. They can read standards and use them to program
application. They know standard tools for network administration and
are able to use them.
