Understanding networking concepts is a more advanced concept for most system administrators but it is an important concept to being successful. In this activity, the student will use the 'netcat (nc)' utility to generate network traffic between two servers and view that traffic's appearance in a tool called iptraf-ng. At the end of this exercise, the student will understand how network traffic can be viewed on the systems supported.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
