Linux Networking Cookbook: Tasty Linux recipes

Filed under
Reviews

Even before I picked up Unix, I worked on networks. While networking has gotten simpler, it's almost all TCP/IP now instead of Arcnet, Token-Ring and a half dozen dusty wiring and protocol schemes. The services that use networking have gotten ever more powerful and more complicated. That's why a book like Carla Schroder's Linux Networking Cookbook is so valuable.

In her book, Schroder delivers exactly what she promises: recipes for creating tasty and useful Linux and TCP/IP networking setups. Want to know how to build a VOIP (voice over IP) server with Asterisk? How to create a single sign-on for hybrid Linux/Windows LANs? Or, how to create a real VPN with OpenVPN a Linux-based PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) server? It's in there.

The book uses Red Hat-based Linux, Fedora specifically, and Debian for its examples.

re: Cookbook

OpenVPN which is SSL/TSL based has NOTHING to do with PPTP which is a defunct and cracked protocol.

I'm guessing the reviewer is confused, and not the author since O'Reilly books usually have good editors.
