Summary

Linux can fill many unglamorous server roles on a network—roles that go largely unnoticed by users but that are vital to a network’s normal functioning. A Linux DHCP server can help you automatically configure basic networking features of other computers; a Linux DNS server can convert between hostnames and IP addresses; and a Linux NTP server can help you keep your computers’ clocks synchronized. Employing Linux in these roles can simplify your overall network administrative workload or improve your network’s functionality.
