Step 1. Connect your workstation to the Internet and start a Wireshark capture on the connected port.
Step 2. Visit YouTube on your browser and activate the transmission (viewing) of a 5-8 min video.
Step 3. Stop your Wireshark capture at the end of the video and save it.

At what rate was the video transmitted? Graph the bit rate of the transmission per minute and add it to your report. (6%)
Explain how the port numbers were handled during the connection time (i.e., since the moment YouTube was opened on the browser until the video transmission ended. Also report on whether the IP addresses remaining constant on not during the visiting time of YouTube (visiting time: the time the YouTube page was opened on your browser until and after the transmission of the video).
