32Bits Online: Linux Network Administrator's Guide: Book Review

(Other stories by Dustin Puryear)

"If you are new to administering Linux servers, or if you are a home user that hasn't had the experience of working in a UNIX environment, then you undoubtedly have questions about how Linux networking works. Your questions may include how to setup a network interface, routing, and DNS configuration, for instance."

"If you fall into one of these categories, you are probably searching for a set of documentation that will walk you through the configuration and use of Linux networking tools. Such documentation already exists in the form of HOWTO documents (most of which are included in Linux distributions), online resources, and hardcopy documentation."

"O'Reilly's Linux Network Administrator's Guide, Second Edition, falls into the latter two categories. The book is available both on paper and in a free online version. Both contain the same text and examples. This is a short review of that title. However, before proceeding, please peruse the Table of Contents to get a general feel for the layout and content of the book."
