Week 3: Setting things up: configuration

Introduction

In this third week of the course you will work through the fifth and sixth sessions of the course.

The fifth session introduces you to two key protocols that are used to configure small networks, such as the one in your home.

The sixth session extends what you have learnt in session five to show you how to use the protocols to configure a home network.

Both sessions are taught by Jon Rosewell, a Senior Lecturer at the Open University.
