Wireshark is a free network protocol analyser. This hands-on course provides a comprehensive tour of using Wireshark to troubleshoot networks. The course concentrates on the information needed in order to pass the WCNA exam. Students will gain the most from this course only if they already have a sound knowledge of the TCP/IP protocols.

TCP/IP Foundation for engineers

By the end of the course delegates will be able to:

  • Download and install Wireshark.
  • Capture and analyse packets with Wireshark.
  • Configure capture and display filters.
  • Customise Wireshark.
  • Troubleshoot networks using Wireshark.
