Linux Networking Clearly Explained
Passionately democratic in its advocacy of networking for the masses, this is the first book on Linux networking written especially for the novice user. Because the free, open-source Linux operating system is winning so many converts today, the number of Linux-based networks will grow exponentially over the next few years. Taking up where Linux Clearly Explained left off, Linux Networking Clearly Explained walks the reader through the creation of a TCP/IP-based, Linux-driven local area network, beginning with a sandbox installation involving just two or three computers. Readers master the fundamentals of system and network administration-including handling user accounts and setting up security-in this less complex environment. The author then helps them along to the more sophisticated techniques associated with connecting this network to the Internet. Focuses on the 20% of Linux networking knowledge that satisfies 80% of network needs-including the needs of small businesses, workgroups within enterprises and high-tech homes. Teaches novices to implement DNS servers, network information services (NIS), network file systems (NFS), and all of the most important TCP/IP services, including email, Web and newsgroup access. Explains how to set up AppleTalk and Windows NT domain servers for networks that include MacIntosh or Windows systems. Comes with a CD containing the latest version of Red Hat Linux, as well as additional freeware/shareware Linux tools and network management applications.
