Thanks everyone! That is a negative I would not be working on them. Thats a whole different division in the Air Force although that would be really cool too if I get my pilot slot!
Yeah its tough teaching yourself this kind of stuff, I usually have to re-read something a few times and then cross reference it from another source for it to make sense and "click." Having someone there to help really makes a difference (you guys).
The stuff that I got down thus far...
1. IP/TCP and UDP
2. Routers, switches, and Hubs
3. DoS, Worms, Viruses, Hacks, etc...
4. Some binary (as a networker I probably won't be using "too" much of this)
5. Network Topology
6. Very little programming of C++ and Python
7. Batch files
9. The term "protocol"
12. The concept of a "server"
14. How Binary is set up; bytes to terabytes
The list goes on but I can't really remember it all for now but I've really started getting a grasp of this stuff and it starts to all make sense the more I read. Now whenever I'm on the computer I'm watching IP/TCP addresses and several other network informations. Whenever I look at a computer or some network I just start laying out the topology and information in my head and start thinking in 1's and 0's instead of just looking at the surface and wondering how it all works. The more I research and read the more I get interested in it. Its like a friggen drug lol, but an awesome one!
