Linux Networking Solutions – Part 2

Video Description

Take your network administration skills to the next level on Linux

About This Video

  • Move beyond the basics of how a Linux machine works and gain a better understanding of Linux networks and their configuration

  • Set up and configure your Linux server and its various network elements like a pro

  • This is a hands-on video on building, maintaining, and securing a network using Linux

  • In Detail

    LiTo begin, you’ll find out how to use Samba 4 to create an Active Directory compatible directory service for your network, then you’ll see how to set up file storage. In this section you will learn how several options to explore in order to host your own file storage, including Samba, NFS, and WebDAV.

    Moving on, you’ll learn how to set up an e-mail server, and we'll look at how e-mail works as a service. You’ll also set up SMTP and IMAP mail services, and enable spam filtering. Then we’ll configure our own XMPP-based IM service, configure it to communicate with other XMPP services, and configure Pidgin as a client to utilize the service.

    After that, you’ll see how to start monitoring services on your network using Nagios. Then, you’ll map out the network so you can discover what is actually there. Finally, you’ll discover how to watch over your network through centralized logging and manage an intrusion detection system using Snort.
