What is the course about?
The course deals with many topics concerning networks.
After participating at the Praktikum you know "how the Internet works" since you set some
of its fundamental mechanisms up by yourself: routing (statically/ dynamically), address
translation, domain name service, virtual private networks and many more!
An index of the labs topics can be found here.
Since we do all experiments with Linux you will really get familar with it even if you
never used it before!
All instructions are in English and you are also supposed to give your answers in English.
So you can practice English!
