Chapter 10. Networking

When it comes to networking, Linux is your operating system of choice, not only because networking is tightly integrated with the OS itself and a wide variety of free tools and applications are available, but for the robustness under heavy loads that can only be achieved after years of debugging and testing in an Open Source project.

Bookshelves full of information have been written about Linux and networking, but we will try to give an overview in this chapter. After completing this, you will know more about

  • Supported networking protocols

  • Network configuration files

  • Commands for configuring and probing the network

  • Daemons and client programs enabling different network applications

  • File sharing and printing

  • Remote execution of commands and applications

  • Basic network interconnection

  • Secure execution of remote applications

  • Firewalls and intrusion detection
