CSEE 4140 Networking Lab – Spring 2011
Networking Laboratory is a course where you actively learn by doing. You will
learn network concepts and protocols by configuring a network using routers
and PCs, observing the actual behavior of these machines and the overall
network, and analyzing and evaluating the results. This is a learning
experience different from other networking courses where you read and think in
an abstract level. We have a laboratory that only enrolled students can enter
and use just for that purpose. Topics covered include IP, ARP, ICMP, RIP,
OSPF, BGP, TCP, UDP, STP, DNS, NAT, DHCP, SNMP, IGMP and PIM-DM/SM.
After taking this course, you will have a better understanding of the network
behavior of individual machines and the whole network in general.
This course is designed for students who already took Computer Networks (CSEE
W4119) or an equivalent class at another university.
The three TAs for this course are:
Mastering Networks: An Internet Lab Manual
Authors: Jorg Lieberherr and Magda El Zarki
Publisher: Addison-Wesley, 2004
The book's website has a number of draft chapters that
accompany the lab and can be found in http://www.tcpip-lab.net/.
Computer Networking: A top-down approach
Authors: James F. Kurose and Keith W. Ross
Publisher: Addison-Wesley, 2009
This is the textbook used for CSEE 4119. It can come in handy to review some
TCP/IP Tutorial and Technical Overview, IBM Redbook by A.Rodriguez, J.
Gatrell, J. Karas, R.Peschke. -
Some specifc RFCs and other documents (will be indicated prior to lab sessions)
Lab reports: 40%
Homeworks and Lab Sessions
Prelab assignments will be done individually and are due (via Courseworks) on
Mon. (every week) at 11:59AM.
Labs are done in teams of two and may take more than 2 hours, or sometimes
less than 1 hour. You should study the structure of each lab in advance so
that you know what you are supposed to be looking for.
After each lab, the team has to submit a lab report (via Courseworks) before
your next lab slot.
Submission days are subject to change.
Late submission is subject to 20 points penalty per day. 3 late days are allowed in a semester.
The final lab assignments for the sessions are below. The meaning of lab
sessions and the TA that will be responsible for the lab are listed below:
Lab 0: Wed 1pm - 3pm (Aditya)
Lab 1: Thur 11am - 1pm (Jaya)
Lab 2: Fri 1pm - 3pm (Michael)
The first session will be on Wednesday, 1/26/2011.
