Master Class : TCP/IP Mechanics from Scratch to Expert
What you'll learn
- Difference between Connection-Oriented and Connection-less state
- Difference between Byte oriented and datagram oriented protocols
- TCP Internal functionality and Mechanism
- Understand how TCP is designed and why
- TCP congestion control, Flow control and Window Mechanism
- Understand TCP graphs and why they look like they are !
- Various other complexties of TCP protocol explained in a simplest possible way
- Assignments and Questions to practice TCP concepts
- Basic knowledge of Transport Layer - UDP and TCP is required
- Basic knowledge of Network Layer of OSI model is a plus
This is Master Class course on TCP/IP protocol - Transmission Control Protocol. Since it is Master Class course, this course discusses the internal design and functioning of complex transport layer protocol - TCP.
Almost all traffic on internet today is transported by TCP protocol. TCP, as where it stands today, mature and solid, is the result of over 25 yrs of research by network gurus. TCP is complicated and difficult to understand, therefore i have paid utmost attention to present the concept in most simplest way as possible without any loss of information.
In this course, we unwrap internals of TCP and try to understand how it works and why it is so designed. So, be ready and place yourself in first gear !
TCP is difficult to understand and confusing if not done in the right way. In this course, I shall be covering all aspects of TCP internal functioning STEP BY STEP with beautiful diagrams, Assignments, Questions and exercises. At no point you shall be left with doubts is my promise. There is no programming in this course.
This is a little Advanced Course, if you are absolute beginner in networking, I would recommend you to first enroll in my other course "Networking course - Network Concepts and Programming from Scratch" and cover important sections on L2 routing, L3 routing, and Transport Layer at-least before jumping into this course. If you are already familiar with this much networking basics, then you are all set to sail through this course.

I have been engaged with coding and software for a decade now. I am a Networking developer at MNC. My rich working experience is backed by graduation from IIT Bombay as an MTech specialist. I am restless for more in-depth knowledge, and always working out the ways to integrate what I know in practical ways. I am always happy to train and encourage people on Udemy – the next-gen education platform.
I will help you to strengthen the networking concepts and fundamentals in a very practical way. I also hones in System Software Development, Linux System Programming and Network Software Development. I love to create courses on unique non-standard topics, and projects. Check my catalogue, you will find couple of project based courses which you can add to your resume.
You’ll complete assignments and work on a project where you’ll use all the theory. I make sure you build a proper understanding and that you’ll get all the questions and doubts answered. Let me take the privilege to guide you and bring useful additions to your resume !
