Level up your Linux network administration skills
Linux can be configured as a network workstation, a DNS server, a mail server, a firewall, a gateway router, and many other things. Network administration is one of the main tasks of a Linux administrator.
In this Learning Path, you will begin with configuring and deploying several network services including files, Web, mails, and servers. You will then learn how to enable NAT on the router in order to allow Internet access from the network.
Going ahead, you will learn to configure Samba to centralize authentication for your network service and Linux client to leverage it for authentication.
Finally, you will have a network with a number of services running on it, and will implement monitoring in order to detect problems as they occur.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will learn to build, maintain, and secure a computer network using Linux.
