Join Greg Sowell for an in-depth discussion in this video Ipconfig, part of Networking Foundations: Protocols and CLI Tools.
- [Voiceover] In Windows, one of the first network…troubleshooting tools you will use is IP Config.…It allows you to quickly verify IP information configured…on your network interfaces.…I start by opening a command prompt.…I can select Start, Run, cmd,…but I prefer to hit the Win + r…and just type cmd.…Typing ipconfig with no additional parameters…shows me all the network interfaces on my computer…along with IPv6 addresses, IPv4 addresses,…Subnet Mask and Default Gateway.…
Any interfaces that are unplugged…show up as Media State, Media disconnected.…I'll scroll up just to look through some of the entries.…There's quite a bit more information…that can be shown by typing ipconfig /all.…I'm gonna clear the screen quickly and do that.…ipconfig /all…This shows the same output as the previous command,…but also gives the Physical Address…or MAC Address for each interface…whether DHCP is enabled or not,…when the DHCP lease was obtained,…and when it will expire.…
Forward slash all also lists the IP address…of the DHCP in configured…
Protocols are the lifeblood of modern communication. By the end of this course, you'll know what you need to troubleshoot any network connection and keep the communication flowing.
Note: This course maps to domain 3 of the MTA Networking Fundamentals exam.
- Identify reasons why connectionless transmissions are faster.
- Determine what type of attack a gratuitous ARP announcing itself as a legitimate host indicates.
- State what IGMP snooping is useful for.
- Describe the best approach to use FTP to view and rename files on a server when your client is behind a firewall.
- Assess whether SSH is natively supported on Windows or not.
- List good uses for the arp command.
