Section 2: Configure the Network (Internet and Transport layers)
  • Explain Internet layer protocols, IP datagrams, IP address types (unicast, broadcast, and multicast), configure netmasks for subnetting and VLSM, manage interface configuration files and configure/unconfigure logical interfaces.
  • Explain how to increase throughput and availability and given a scenario, implement and troubleshoot multipathing through the use of both configuration files and the command line.

  • Explain the IPv6 addressing to include IPv6 autoconfiguration, unicast, and multicast address types.
  • Configure and troubleshoot IPv6 non-routers, routers, and IPv6 6to4 routers.
  • Manage IPv6 (display critical information and modify, configure, and troubleshoot interfaces).
  • Configure IPv6 multipathing both manually and at boot time.

  • Troubleshoot DHCP server, DHCP client, and acquire a new lease manually.
  • Configure an NTP server and an NTP client, and given a scenario, troubleshoot NTP using messages and snoop.
Section 4: Configure Solaris IP Filter
  • Configure the behavior of Solaris IP Filter using packet direction (in keywords and out keywords), and using rule processing (block keywords, pass keywords, quick keywords, and group keywords).
  • Configure and modify filtering on an IP address, network interface, protocol type, and port.
  • Configure logging in Solaris IP Filter, passed packets, blocked packets, and rule match and analyze logged information and statistics.
