PREFACE:

INTRODUCTION

This book is designed primarily for network professionals preparing for exam 70-088: Implementing and Supporting Microsoft¨ Proxy Server 2.0. When you pass this exam you become a Microsoft Certified Professional. You also earn elective credit toward Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification and elective credit toward Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer + Internet certification.

This book will benefit any computing professional who is responsible for the management of Windows NT-based computing environments, particularly in the enterprise where security is important. It is designed to be both a training guide and reference resource.

Who This Book is For

This book is designed to provide concise and comprehensive information about the Microsoft Proxy Server Version 2.0 and is for computer professionals who manage computers running under the Microsoft¨ Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 95/98 operating systems. Although many aspects of both client and server side are covered, the readers of this book should have a good working knowledge of a Microsoft Windows operating system, such as Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0.

What YouÕll Need

Through the use of numerous illustrations and CD-ROM-based training supplements, we have endeavored to make this book as self-contained as possible. Nevertheless, we acknowledge that there is no substitute for hands-on experience. To fully practice the concepts explained in this book, you will need at least three Intel 486/66 (or better) computers with as least 32 Mbytes of RAM (64 Mbytes recommended), 450MB of free hard disk space, two network adapter cards, two mice(or other pointing device), two VGA monitors, CD-ROM drive, and a 1.44MB 3.5-inch floppy diskette drive. Optional equipment includes a modem or ISDN adapter, a printer, and a tape drive. The Proxy Server will only install on a system running Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0. Client systems can run Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0, Windows 95/98.

Applicable "hands-on" portions of the text provide advice on how to obtain maximum training benefit from lesser equipment configurations.

How this Book is Organized

This book is divided into 11 chapters, which cover issues such as planning, installation, administration, packet filtering, performance monitoring, testing and troubleshooting. The numbered sections in each chapter correspond to specific MCSE exam requirements, and each chapter concludes with a list of related study questions. Most chapters have hands-on Study Break sections that permit you to practice what you learned. Appendix A contains the answers to all review questions, while Appendix B provides additional installation instructions.

Conventions Used in This Book

This book uses different features to help highlight key information.

Chapter Syllabus

The primary focus of this series is to address those topics that are to be tested in each exam. Therefore, each chapter opens with a syllabus that lists the topics to be covered. Each topic directly corresponds to the Level 1 headings in the chapter. So if there are six Level 1 headings in a chapter, there will be six topics listed under the Chapter Syllabus. If a syllabus topic and Level 1 heading are MCSE-specific, they will be accompanied by an MCSE icon (see the following icon description). However, there may be instances when the topics are not exam-specific. In these cases, the chapter syllabus highlights and corresponding Level 1 headings appear without the MCSE icon.

Icons

Icons represent called-out material that is of significance and that you should be alerted to.

Study Breaks

These sidebars are designed to test your knowledge in a practical manner through the use of performance-based exercises. These exercises provide an opportunity to perform actual tasks that will undoubtedly be encountered in a working environment, and simulated in the Microsoft exam.

Chapter Review Questions

Each chapter ends with a series of review questions. These questions are designed to simulate a part of an actual exam and to reinforce what you have just learned. The number of questions will vary depending on the length subject matter of the individual chapter. All of the questions are taken directly from the material covered in the chapter, and the answers can be found in Appendix A.

About the CD-ROM/Web Site

This book is accompanied by a CD-ROM that contains valuable self-paced training material, courtesy of CBT Systems. Please follow the installation instructions on the CD-ROM.
