Comtest is pleased to announce the following training to assist you in your efforts to maintain and operate an efficient network. Utilizing our years of experience, our Senior Systems Engineer / Analyst is going to be providing the following "hands-on" training classes.
1. Intro to Protocol Analysis and Network Troubleshooting using a "sniffer"
2. Advanced Protocol Analysis and Network Troubleshooting using a "sniffer" Part I
3. Advanced Protocol Analysis and Network Troubleshooting using a "sniffer" Part II
4. Advanced Protocol Analysis and Troubleshooting using a "sniffer" Lab

Intro to Protocol Analysis and Network Troubleshooting using a "sniffer"

  • Designed to provide an introduction to core concepts, laying a solid foundation for further analysis and troubleshooting
    • Suggested Prerequisites: None required; basic networking helpful
  • Introduction to Protocol Analysis Concepts, including:
    • Why? What problems can it solve?
    • How? Discuss concepts and data flow
      • review TCP/IP and OSI Model
    • Where? Switched environments; WAN vs. LAN; passive and active; etc...
  • Introduction to various tools, including:
    • Commercial
      • Network Instruments Observer
    • Non-commercial
      • Ethereal
  • All instruction is provided in a "hands-on" approach, allowing students to immediately use and apply concepts, including actual use of the above sniffers on a live network


Advanced Protocol Analysis and Network Troubleshooting using a "Sniffer"

  • Designed to help students progress to more advanced analysis concepts
    • Suggested Prerequisites: Completion of Introductory Analysis Course or equivalent base knowledge
  • Review TCP/IP Data Flow Concepts (hands-on)
    • TCP/IP Stack and OSI Model
  • Review Three Main Modes (hands-on)
    • Statistics / Monitoring Mode
    • Network Trending
    • Packet Capture
  • Packet Capture, Decode and Analysis
    • real traffic will be captured and analyzed
    • will provide opportunity for each student to apply all of the above concepts independently, then to be reviewed together by the instructor to ensure proper understanding
  • All instruction is provided in a "hands-on" approach, allowing students to immediately use and apply concepts, including actual use of the above sniffers on a live network


Advanced Protocol Analysis and Network Troubleshooting using a "sniffer" Part II

  • Designed to help students progress to more advanced analysis concepts
    • Suggested Prerequisites: Completion of Advanced Analysis Part I
  • Filters (hands-on)
    • Why filter?
    • Diff between Pre and Post
    • Types of Filters, benefits and uses of each
      • layer 2 vs. layer 3
      • protocol / transport filters
      • advanced filtering
        • ascii, binary, hex data offsets
  • Triggers and Alarms (hands-on)
  • Packet generation and simulation
  • Packet Capture, Decode and Analysis
    • real traffic will be captured and analyzed
    • will provide opportunity for each student to apply all of the above concepts independently, then to be reviewed together by the instructor to ensure proper understanding
  • All instruction is provided in a "hands-on" approach, allowing students to immediately use and apply concepts, including actual use of the above sniffers on a live network


Advanced Protocol Analysis and Troubleshooting using a "Sniffer" Lab

  • Designed to provide additional hands-on opportunities to apply previously learned concepts, with full access to instructor for assistance
    • Suggested Prerequisites: Completion of Introductory and Advanced Analysis Courses or equivalent base knowledge
  • Students will be asked to provide feedback in advance of the class regarding specific topics and/or problems they are interested to troubleshoot
    • Lab assignments will be prepared in advance
      • In addition to those already prepared as part of the courseware, the instructor will prepare scenarios based on the input provided above
      • Students are welcome to bring actual trace files as well
    • After an intial review, students will be allowed time to use "sniffers" and perform real network analysis, which will then be reviewed together with the instructor
