You may wish to attend classes specializing in TCP/IP problem diagnostics, performance, and tuning, in problem diagnostics for network security protocols (SSL, AT-TLS), or IPv6 planning and implementation. We have taught these classes in the U.S., Germany, Spain, and Portugal. We can do an in-person class for your company internally. Please contact us at: (831) 659-8360 in the United States of America or at our contact us page at Contact Us.
Do you want to start to understand IPv6 from a technical viewpoint?
IPv6 is much more than a larger address. Many features of the IPv4 protocol have been replaced. Address planning and structure is completely different.
Much of what you know for IPv4 needs to be rethought. For example, ARP has been replaced with Neighbor Discovery. NAT does not exist in IPv6 - or does it? We will review address planning for IPv4 and then consider how we might do that in IPv6.
We will also briefly discuss application changes.
In this class, we will look at:
Many companies are implementing Enterprise Extender. Diagnosing problems and reading a trace with EE packets is a challenge! Once EE is implemented, do you know how well it is working? We have seen companies with over half their RTP Pipes (virtual circuits) unused, yet transmitting overhead traffic.
This is a hands-on class. We will actually implement Enterprise Extender in a lab environment. This will allow us to trace flows and issue commands. Sample syllabus for protocol functions:
Do you have the responsibility for implementing secure sockets for TCP/IP on z/OS? What options are available? What is the difference between SSL and AT-TLS? What implementation pitfalls will you run into? Would you like to have some hands-on experience? Would you like to see Policy Agent implemented? Would you like to see trace packets using SSL?
In this class, we will do:
