Summary

In this hour, you learned the basics of the TCP/IP protocol and IPv4 and IPv6 addressing. TCP/IP is the most used LAN protocol in the world. An IPv4 address consists of a 32-bit address in the form of a four-octet dotted-decimal number. IPv6 addresses are 128-bit hexadecimal addresses that are divided into eight 16-bit parts. The last 64 bits of the address refer to the client interface and are used to identify the node on the network.

TCP/IP is installed by default on Windows Server 2008 and you can take advantage of both IPv4 and IPv6 addressing via the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box. TCP/IP (v4 or v6) properties such as the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS server address are configured in the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box (for either v4 or v6).

IP subnetting enables you to subnet your network IP addresses into logical groupings or subnets. IPv4 uses bits from the node address to create subnets. IPv6 provides a specific 16-bit part for subnetting.

The command-line tool ipconfig enables you to check a server’s IP configuration. Command-line tools such as netstat and ping enable you to check your active connections and also to check your server’s connectivity (respectively) on the network.
