The latest release in O'Reilly's highly acclaimed "Cookbook" series, this soup-to-nuts problem-solving book covers everything you need to know to perform your job as a Linux network administrator. The broad range of topics includes putting a system on the network, using a Linux system as a network gateway, setting up centralized authentication for the network, creating firewalls, creating VLANs and VPNs, system and network monitoring, troubleshooting, and working with IPv6. Whether you're a new or experienced network administrator, the Linux Networking Cookbook is a valuable collection of recipes distilled from author Carla Schroder's years of experience with Linux networking.

Author Biography

Carla Schroder is a self-taught Linux and Windows sysadmin, who laid hands on her first computer around her 37th birthday. Her first PC was a Macintosh LC II. Next came an IBM-clone, a 386sx running MS-DOS 5 and Windows 3.1, with a 14" color display, which was adequate for many pleasant hours of DOOM play. Then around 1997 she discovered Red Hat 5.0, and had a whole new world to explore.

Somewhere along the way she found herself doing freelance consulting for small businesses and home users, supporting both Linux and Windows users, and integrating Linux and Windows on the LAN; primarily Linux servers and Windows clients. She is the author of the Linux Cookbook for O'Reilly, and writes Linux howtos for several computer publications.

Carla is living proof that you're never too old to try something new, computers are a heck of a lot of fun, and anyone can learn to do anything. Visit tuxcomputing.com for more Carla stuff.
