"In addition to being a very robust client, Linux makes a great network server, and it's also a great platform for a small home or office network. Because networking is such an integral part of what Linux is and how it is used, we've come up with a series of articles explaining the basics of networking and how you can fully exploit Linux's networking capabilities in your small office/home office. The series will introduce the terminology and technology for those unfamiliar with networking. The articles in the series include:
"We use Red Hat Linux as a basis for our examples and try to mention details regarding other Linux distributions when possible. Unfortunately, networking remains one of the more arcane aspects of Linux due to differences between Linux distributions. Most configuration files are similar between distributions but often they are found in different directories or have different filenames. Likewise, the Linux startup scripts, which are often distribution-specific, must be modified to enable certain networking features."
