LinuxPR: Linux Network Administrator's Guide Revised and Expanded

Jul 11, 2000, 00:45 (1 Talkback[s])

"Olaf Kirch originally wrote "Linux Network Administrator's Guide" as part of the Linux Documentation Project to enable users to master all those day-to-day, practical issues that arise in Linux networking. It proved so invaluable a text on Linux networking, that O'Reilly & Associates published it in book form."

"'Linux Network Administrator's Guide' is an LDP work, it's a free documentation project," says Terry Dawson, the book's co-author. "The end result is an example of the synergy that can result when a company like O'Reilly is brave enough to support a project in spite of the knowledge that some of their work and effort may assist competitors."

"Now fully updated in its second edition, this impressive, comprehensive introduction to networking on Linux 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."
