This 3-day training gives a complete introduction into the new KEA-DHCP software on Unix and Linux systems. Attendees will learn how to install, configure and maintain the KEA-DHCP system. The course also includes a refresh of the DHCPv4 protocol and explains DHCPv6, the dynamic host configuration protocol for IPv6 networks.

The KEA-DHCP training has been developed in cooperation with ISC and the KEA development team.
