This course will examine the TCP/IP Protocol Suite and study the relationship of TCP/IP with network architectures such as OSI. The course will examine the various specific protocols that form this protocol suite such as IP, ICMP, TCP, Telnet, FTP, SNMP, and others, and the functions and services they provide. Naming and addressing conventions, routing and network configuration will be studied together with the process of using TCP/IP on an Internet. This course will further provide students with the concepts, terminology and procedures to set up and use TCP/IP on a network. The advantages and disadvantages of using TCP/IP as a LAN and Internet protocol will be covered.

Customer Reviews

Methodical, logical, concise, efficient, thorough and a great story teller.

I started listening to Dr. Stafford’s TCP/IP Podcasts to augment my CISCO network Fundamental class this week. I see that he left several other audio lectures for networking- priceless for me!

It is next to impossible for me to find a great professor in computer science or the programming languages such as Dr. Stafford.

With great regret, I also found that Dr. Stafford passed away in 2010.


Everything ipodavenger said is dead on. Nobody is questioning this professor's knowledge. He's lived through and thoroughly learned about everything he's talking about. But, he used two pieces of wax paper held to a styrofoam cup with a rubber band as a microphone. I'm going to try listening through as much as I can, but it's so hard to listen to this.

My God, That Voice!

I was happy to find this lecture. But then I listened to the first and second lecture and if I were to break it down to the top three most common distracting sounds you hear (instead of learning) it would be the sound of Dr. Stafford saying "Ahhhh" "Ummmm," and a persistent static background hum. It is literally ear splitting and headache inducing. Next, his voice cracks and is unbearably shrill because it was simply not recorded correctly. He presents himself so poorly with a boring and repetitive stream of consciousness style of lecturing that I couldn't bear it. My head hurts as I type this. I just can't take it anymore. Perhaps I will finish this later but the vocal quality and Dr. Staffords languid approach are just too much to take.

Dr. Stafford, filter your recordings, clean them up, get a producer or some good sound software. And stop saying "Ahhhh" all the time. I give this presentation a D -.

This is not the first iTunes University presentation that I've checked out and found the audio quality to be pathetic. Someone needs to up the standards.
