In previous chapters, you were exposed to some basic TCP/IP utilities and commands. In this project, you will gain more experience with TCP/IP troubleshooting commands. To complete this project, you may use any type of workstation that has the TCP/IP protocol suite installed and is connected to the Internet. The following steps cover Windows 7, UNIX, and Linux workstations. Note that with some versions of Linux, you might have to replace traceroute with tracepath in the route tracing command syntax.

As you have learned, DNS (Domain Name System) stores information about hosts and IP addresses in resource records. You have also learned about several types of DNS records, including an address (A) resource record, name server (NS) record, and mail exchange (MX) record. In this project, you will use the nslookup utility to determine a domain’s mail server address. Then, you’ll perform tests to verify that the mail server is working. This series of steps might be performed by a network administrator whose clients are having difficulty exchanging mail with users on another network.
