Linux, a Unix-compatible operating system that runs on personal computers and larger servers, is valued above all for its networking strengths. The Linux Network Administrator’s Guide spells out all the information needed for joining a network, whether it’s a simple UUCP connection or a full LAN with a Linux system serving as a firewall, an NFS or NIS file server, and a mail and news hub.
This book, which is one of the most successful to come from the Linux Documentation Project and remains freely distributable under its license, touches on all the essential networking software included with the operating system, plus some hardware considerations. Fully updated, the book now covers firewalls, including the use of ipchains and iptables (netfilter), masquerading, and accounting. Other new topics include Novell (NCP/IPX) support and INN (news administration). Original material on serial connections, UUCP, routing and DNS, mail and News, SLIP and PPP, NFS, and NIS has been thoroughly updated. Kernel options reflect the 2.2 kernel. However, some topics covered in other books (notably Samba and web server administration) are not in this book.
Topics include: Introduction to TCP/IP
Configuring network and serial hardware
Domain Name Service
Serial line communications using SLIP and PPP
NIS and NFS
Administering electronic mail, including sendmail and Exim
Administering Netnews, including INN and several news readers
Firewalling using ipfwadm, ipchains, and iptables (netfilter)
Masquerading and accounting
IPX configuration for a Novell Netware network
About the Authors
Olaf Kirch has a degree in Mathematics from Technische Universitaet Darmstadt. He presently works as a UNIX programmer for a company producing a CAD system. A Linux fan for a couple of years now, he is amazed at the pace its development continues to progress. For relaxation, Olaf likes painting, drawing, and reading (anything from nineteenth century poetry to detective novels and Japanese manga). He likes to spend time outdoors whenever possible. He doesn’t have a driver’s license (never had one), so he goes about most of his daily routine by bicycle. When he gets away from his keyboard for more than a few days, he likes to go mountain-walking.
Terry Dawson is an amateur radio operator and long time Linux enthusiast. He is the author of a number of network related HOWTO documents for the Linux Documentation Project, co-author the 2nd edition of O’Reilly’s Linux Network Administrators Guide and is an active participant in a number of other Linux projects. Terry has 15 years professional experience in telecommunications and is currently engaged in network management research in the Telstra Research Laboratories.Reviews (See reviews on Amazon.com)
This great book can provide a lot of help to anybody having a little knowledge of linux. To begin with, this book illustrates a Linux Network administrator’s preliminary task as well as bit of complex task sequentially and in a perfect language for everybody. The book overhauls the faults of every other Network administrator guide book that I’ve read in the recent past. So it’s worth buying if want to really learn something.
