I wanted to post an update on how my network routing and switching class is going. The class has 2 people in it now and I like the topics that we are working on. We are starting with a discussion and PowerPoint slides of the theoretical backbone of how the internet works. We meet 3 out of 7 days of the week, and we will be starting some hands-on labs in about two weeks. We had a 13-page reading over the weekend on an introduction to the IP suite of protocols. Soon, once we start working on the labs, we will get to physically set up the LANs and WANs and then telnet the routers in order to configure them. Sounds like fun.
