With an increasing number of networks and mission-critical applications
running on Linux, system and network administrators must be able to do
more than set up a server and rely on its default configuration. Advanced
Linux Networking is designed to help you achieve a higher level of
competence. It focuses on powerful techniques and features of Linux
networking and provides you with the know-how you need to improve
server efficiency, enhance security, and adapt to new requirements.
This book begins with a brief introduction to low-level configuration,
including a guide to getting your network up and running. Part II outlines
those servers and procedures most likely to be used by the computers on
your local network: DHCP servers, Kerberos, Samba, time servers, and
network backups, among others. Part III covers Internet servers: DNS,
SMTP (sendmail, Postfix, and Exim), Apache, and FTP servers.
