Networking And Cybersecurity by Cleo18: 12:15am On Feb 23
I am interested in learning cybersecurity from the scratch. I studied Mathematics and have a basic knowledge of Python. I have no knowledge of networking.

I decided to visit a training center today and the director informed me that I would need to learn networking before I start the cybersecurity (ethical hacking).

I asked him what software application we would be using, he said none. This is the reason I am writing this post. Please in learning networking, don't I need any software application such as Cisco Tracer packet, GNS-3, Eve-ng?

According to him, we would be doing more of networking practicals in the course of the networking training. So why do I see members in some groups posting projects done on software applications? Don't I need knowledge of the software applications too?

Please to those of you who have knowledge of these trainings, for my self-practice in preparation for the certification exams, don't I need to know the softwares application aspects too?

Networking does not require knowledge of softwares and actually is simple. Connecting multiples of workstations using ethernet cables or wirelessly. It is all about having one workstation as server and multiples of clients using any of the topologies and being able to remotely control the machines from any of the work stations. Then learn to ping and trouble shoot and share resources and utilities/peripherals.

Quite simple. You do not even need to go to a computer school to do these stuff. Just buy multiples of computers and connect them and play around with them.
