In this chapter, we explored additional networking topics. We started off with some notes on planning an IP address scheme for your network so that you can create groups for the different types of nodes, such as servers and network equipment, as well as plan a pool of addresses for DHCP. We also set up a DHCP and DNS server, with an additional section on creating a DNS slave for added redundancy. We closed off this chapter with discussions on setting up an Internet gateway, as well as configuring NTP.
In the next chapter, we'll take a look at transferring and sharing files over the network. This will include covering NFS and Samba shares, as well as using
sshfs. Stay tuned!
