Data Communications sixth week was a follow up on the assignment topics:

  • TCP/IP
  • ARP
  • DHCP
  • more wireshark analysis

The lecture was an audio recording which gave us a very nice overview of routing.

Three major types of routing:

  • Centralized routing
  • Static Decentralized routing
  • Dynamic Decentralized routing (adaptive routing)

Al three are used through the internet.

The recording followed some example of HTTP requests travelling through a network.
