Publisher Comments:

Red Hat Linux Networking and System Administration, 3e starts with the basics— network planning and Red Hat installation and configuration. New features will cover the spring Fedora and RHEL4 2005 release. The book demonstrates in detail how to set and optimize network and Internet services, monitor Red Hat Linux System Maintenance, the basics of Red Hat Linux security and troubleshooting and problem solving advice. The user will learn how to: establish a network file system; configure mail services; configure TCP/IP networking and the Network Information System; connect to Microsoft, Apple and Novell networks; use LDAP; configure FTP services; configure mail and web services; maximize use of Red Hat Network; upgrade and customize the kernel; administer users and groups; install and upgrade software packages; and backup and restore the File System.

  New Chapters to this edition include:

Configuring a Database Server: installing, configuring, and basic testing of two open source relational databases, MySQL and PostgreSQL, and the major commercial database, Oracle

Creating a VNC Server: how to create a VNC server using Fedora Core and RHEL to enable telecommuters and other remote employees to access a Linux-based LAN and LAN-based services without needing to be in the office. This chapter also describes how to configure a Linux system as a VNC client.

Providing Convenience Services: how to set up non-essential LAN-based convenience services including a time server (NTP), a PalmPilot sync server, a content management system, and a streaming multimedia server.

Providing Web Services: how to add common and popular Web-based services to a basic Web serverincluding mailing lists, blogs, Web-based email, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), RSS feeds, and site search functionality.

Exploring SELinux Security Basics: SELinux is the new (evidently preferred) security model for Fedora- and RHEL-based systems, so this chapter describes how SELinux's policy-based security works and how to work with SELinux.

Exploring the Desktops: default RH desktop, GNOME, will be explained. Coverage will also be provided for KDE. Some of the most used applications, such as a web browser, email client, multimedia and productivity applications will be described.

Synopsis:

  • Starts with the basics of Red Hat, the leading Linux distribution in the U.S., such as network planning and Red Hat installation and configuration
  • Offers a close look at the new Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and Fedora Core 4 releases
