Linux Systems Administration: Networking and Package Administration
In this course, you will continue using real systems while learning how to interface a Unix system with a network. You will start by learning about IP addresses and how to configure Ethernet devices, learn about many of the services offered by a Unix server, and finish up by configuring your very own DNS service from scratch.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Interface a Linux or Unix system with a network.
- Demonstrate knowledge of IP addresses.
- Configure an Ethernet device.
- Demonstrate understanding of several Unix services, such as email.
- Configure a DNS service from scratch.
From beginning to end, you will learn by doing Linux-based projects and submitting them for instructor feedback. These projects, as well as the final project, will add to your portfolio and contribute to certificate completion. Besides a browser and Internet connection, all software is provided online by the O’Reilly School of Technology.
This course counts toward the Linux Systems Administration Certificate Series.
Prerequisites: Linux Systems Administration: The Command Line, or equivalent skills. This course is meant for the beginning or intermediate system administrator.
