Computer Networking Hands-on material

While this subject has no formal practicals there is considerable merit in learning by doing. This page will contain material of a practical (hands-on) nature.

  • Applets (from Pearson website - I believe no 'magic' (purchase, etc.) is required to get access)

  • Wireshark Labs-sheets - not bad for ideas but the pitch point is an American Liberal Arts College, interpret that as you wish.

  • Virtual Network Simulator - Perhaps the most exciting is to get your fingers in the machinery - not literally, we don't have Health and Saftey clearance for that - in the machinery of networking. I encourage you to look at VNS and try it out!
