Learn to successfully set up, build, and manage your computer networks using 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

    We will first explore configuring a router. Initially, you will manually configure IP address information on your system and then properly configure the system to bring up its interfaces automatically. From there, we'll move on to extend your system to act as a router for your own network, including DHCP for dynamically configuring client systems.

    After that you will configure DNS. You will set up your internal DNS server to resolve external hostnames, and host DNS records for your own domain.

    Next you will configure IPv6. Starting with a brief introduction to IPv6, you'll configure a tunnel to provide IPv6 connectivity, implement firewalling using iptables6, and provide IPv6 addresses to the rest of your network.

    Next you will look at remote access and explore methods for remotely interacting with your new network using OpenSSH and OpenVPN.

    Finally you will explore Web Servers; here you will set up web servers hosting PHP code, using both the Apache HTTPD server and NGINX.
