Overview

There was once a time when you had to hire a consultant or purchase an off-the-shelf package if you wanted to build a network of your own. But times have changed. The notion of setting up and running your own network is well within reach. Best of all, you can do it quickly, easily, and cheaply. All you need is a comprehensive guide to get you started.

Packed with detailed instructions and real-world examples, The LINUX® Network will get your network up and running in no time. The book starts off with an in-depth examination of the nuts and bolts of networking, including hardware, software, and protocols. You then delve into topics like installing a modem and an Ethernet card, configuring your LINUX network, connecting to the Internet, setting up a PC as a gateway to the Internet, securing your LINUX network, and more.

Accompanying The LINUX Network is a CD-ROM featuring some helpful resources for building your network, including the latest release of Slackware LINUX and copies of several files from the book.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is another book for do-it-yourselfers who do not want to pay Microsoft or Novell for their server system software. Unlike many Linux books on the market, it is geared to the beginner setting up a small office network, not a client/server professional. Butzen and Hilton clearly explain how to build a Linux network, from installing wires to installing the software and even connecting Windows95 users to the Linux network. The CD-ROM contains the Slackware Linux version 3.5.
