In addition to these specific topics, this book contains general information on configuring network interfaces, and important chapters on security and troubleshooting.
Linux Network Servers grew out of my earlier book, Linux Network Servers 24seven. This new book, however, is more than a second edition. Although the character and content that drew high praise for the original book remains, the new book has been completely reworked for the professional system administrators who rely on the Craig Hunt Linux Library. (Much of the praise for Linux Network Servers 24seven is still available online for your perusal.) Introductory material from the original book was removed to make room for more technical details in this version. I believe, and I hope you agree, that this new book is even better than its predecessor.
