Hi, I am Rob. I'm Candice. Congrats on making it through this course. Now, that you've made it this far, we're here to give you a sneak peek into what an interview on the technical subjects covered by this course, might look like. We hope this will help you have a better idea of what to expect in your next interview, just remember to keep learning and keep practicing. All right. So for this scenario, let's say that you're working at help desk for a global company, and you get a call first thing in the morning from a user in a remote office. They sound panicked and they tell you that the network is down in their office, what do you do? I always assure the user that I'll be able to help them out, and then I will also want to know the network outage symptoms. So, are you receiving a error message? Yeah. Let's say that I just open up my laptop and I tried to access one of our internal websites. I get an error message and it says, "Page can't be displayed". Okay. Do you know of any other users who are having this issue? No. I'm not sure. It's first thing in the morning and I'm the first one here. Okay. Can you actually give me the name of the website, I'd like to test it out on my computer. Sure. The URL for the internal website is intranet.companyx.com. Okay, thanks. So, I'm going to test that out. All right, and let's say that it loads up finders for you. Okay. So, now I want you to try out external website, so maybe try google.com. Okay. So, I get the same result on google.com. Page can't be displayed. Okay. Which OS are you using? Let's say I'm using Windows 7. Okay. So, I want you to navigate to the command prompt. So, a way you could do that is just going to the "Start" menu and search "CMD". Okay. So, let's say I launch that, I have my black command prompt window open. Okay. So now, can you run the command Ipconfig/all? Okay. I do that and I see a bunch of things, I see IP address, Default Gateway, DNS, and I'm a curious user. So, can you explain to me what all those things mean? Yes. So, IP address is a unique numerical address, given to computing devices to communicate on the Internet to other computers. Default Gateway serves as an access point that's used by computers to share information to another computer or on the internet, so that could be like a router. DNS is Domain Name System, so that translate domain names into the IP addresses. Okay, great. So, let's say I redo all this info and I tell you my IP address is 192.something.something, but you know that our network only uses addresses in the range of 172.something.something. Does that mean anything? Yeah. So, does this machine use DHCP? It does. But since you brought that up, can you explain to me what DHCP is? Yes. So, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol automatically assigns IP addresses to the computing devices, and it can also send network configurations too. Why would that be important in this scenario? So, this'll be important just because if the IP addresses is getting assigned statically, then we have to go in and change it, but it should begin to assign automatically. All right. So, back to our scenario, what are some reasons I might be getting the wrong IP address from DHCP? DHCP can be configured incorrectly or you could be connected to the wrong network. So, let's start with the most simple explanation. How can we check what network I'm connected to? Do you know if you're connected to a wired or wireless network? I'm on my laptop, so I'm on wireless. Okay. So, if you're on wireless, let's go to the bottom right corner and click on the Wi-Fi symbol, and then go on to network preferences, just to see what network you're actually connected to. All right, and when I do that, you're right. I'm connecting to some random network across the street, and once I switch back to our corporate wireless, it seems to solve the issue. I guess the network wasn't down after all, good job. In this scenario, we saw a great example of asking clarifying questions. Problem started with the user saying that the network was down. But that can actually mean many things. It's important to figure out what exactly is going wrong before we start trying to fix things? We also saw a few examples of having to explain the terms we use during the interview. If you use a term like DNS or DHCP, it's important that you know what it means and how it might be relevant. That's it for now. See you again at the end of the next course.
