As everyone knows Wireshark is the ultimate Open Source network and data packet visualization tool.
So can you find the three problems in the traces below....The Challange Begins!!
Every Network Engineer should know Wireshark inside and out regardless of the commercial tools they use. Here is an incrediable oportunity for those in and around Austin, Texas, capitol of the Great State of Texas!
Should you Go to this Class - Well lets look at some of the things you will learn about...see if you know the answers of what is in these Wireshark traces -
Answer - that you will learn in the class-
This is what it looks like when another 10mb device’s preamble overwrites another packet.
The preamble pattern of 1010 works out to be A and 0101 is 5.
Probable cause: half/full duplex mismatch
Ok, Do You Want To Try another trace -
Well do you see a problem?
Look at 1550 - Now do you see it???
Compare it to 1549 - Now do you see???
Answer - In packet 1550, the device is advertising a MSS (Maximum Segment Size) of 2, instead of a typical value of 1460.
This results in very poor performance or a device crash!
OK - Last try - See if you can answer this one.......
Answer - The ping packets have the same seq value indicating apossible problem
Cause: there is a routing loop
Now if you got all these by yourself - GREAT...But I bet you would like to see and learn much more and this class will blow you away.
This really cool and VERY informative class is being taught by my friend, Lovemytool.com author and one of the best network and communications analyst around today, Tony Fortunato. This is an awesome opportunity for any network engineer, so do not miss this event!
Calling all Network engineers, would you be interested in a HANDS ON technical deep dive into Wireshark?
Check out this upcoming training: Network Protocol Analysis using Wireshark Core Course.
You should be VERY INTERESTED, says the Oldcommguy!
Our own Tony Fortunato will be teaching this 3 day lab-based training class on effective Wireshark usage.
The class will begin with understanding protocols:
- Spanning Tree Protocol
- And Many more protocols and a lot of trace analysis.
Real World, Hands On Training that you simply cannot get in any academic setting!
Tony’s style of teaching is amazing, providing hands on experience in advanced methods of packet analysis. Approximately 70% of the class will be hands on. You’ll be capturing packets in real time and applying filters, then examining the results. You will gain great insights into the protocols and learn how to conduct expert analysis to debug network problems.
You will learn to read and understand packet traces. After completing this course, you will have the skills you need to understand what is going on with your network traffic, at an in-depth technical level. It will also cover some advanced topics on TAP monitoring, packet capture on 10G networks and NIC/capture drivers.
Training hours are 8:30 – 5:00 daily. The cost is $1800 per student. Register here.
