Task ① ⇒ basics
Perform a series of small tasks
to show your understanding of basic concepts
Task 01.01| stay in touch with current news
Task 01.02| client-server relationship - ensure that you are prepared to work with the server
Set up your Virtual Private Network connection. Go to VPN Installation and Clients. Log in there and install the VPN client on your personal computers so you may use it to communicate with UNC servers when you are operating outside of the UNC network.
Task 01.03| client skills - download and install software
Using shareware.unc.edu or any other tool that you prefer, download and install an FTP tool compatible with your personal laptop and the UNC servers and show that you have the software on your PC by showing me that you know how to do a screen capture
Task 01.04 | server skills
Demonstrate some basic server operating system command line functional skills by creating a password protected directory in your public_html space on Opal and then send the name of your directory, along with the userid and password needed to access it to .
Task 01.05 | Internet information tools - how do packets travel
Using a traceroute tool, trace the route of packets from your client back to a domain name on a server and FTP a screenshot of your results into the password protected directory you created in Task 01.04.
Send an email note to my email with the name of the directory you will create for Task 01.04, along with the URL I will need to find it, and the username and password I will need to open it.
If you wish to place your Tasks on your own blog, tell me how to find it.
These first tasks are individually small and discrete, so there really isn't a visual model to follow.
