This one isn't too tough if you've been around Microsoft networks and TCP/IP for any time at all. If you haven't? Well, hop in and learn about DHCP, WINS, DNS. You'll need to know their duties and how they're supposed to play together. New to 2000 are the auto-assigned IP addresses when a DHCP Server can't be contactedyou'll want to know all about it.
You'll need to know the basics of network design, and the placement of DHCP, WINS, and DNS servers. In contrast, you should know when (and why) it might be appropriate to implement Relay Agents for WINS and DHCP.
New to Windows 2000 Professional is ICS (Internet Connection Sharing), which is ideal for small LANs. ICS allows many users on a network to access the Internet through a single Internet connection. In tandem with ICS, you should be familiar with Dial-Up Networking features and configuring Professional to participate in a VPN (Virtual Private Network).
Study Hint: Explore all the tabs and settings on the TCP/IP properties within the Network applet.
