Well here we go with book #2, the Linux Networking Cookbook. Hot off the presses, fresh from the oven, the baby is born!
Linux comes with a powerhouse networking stack and bales of great troubleshooting and monitoring tools. This book covers most of the fundamental Linux networking chores- firewalls, secure remote access, routing, building a Linux wireless access point (my personal favorite), serial console administration, network monitoring, hands-free installations, some OpenLDAP, running an Asterisk VoIP server, and using your specialized network administrator laptop for diagnosis and repairs.
No endless windy theorizing, just nice step-by-step recipes for getting things done. Bon appetit!
