This month you will learn the basics of networking with Linux,
  * Basic TCP/IP networking theory

  * Simple routing
  * Troubleshooting, common networking commands, and more...

Students who attend this session should learn enough to be able to
attend the upcoming Firewall and FreeS/WAN classes.


Jean-Serge Gagnon

Jean-Serge Gagnon's first exposure to computers was in 1985 when he did
Z80 assembler on a Sinclair ZX81 and on a TRS-80 Model III. He's been
working in the IT industry for 11 years, starting out as a Hardware
Technician, then as a Systems Analyst where he developed the PostScript
Processing Speed Test [http://www.gaaj.com/ppst/], a benchmark
performance tool for PostScript printers and interpreters which is still
in use today. Next he was a Linux Web Interface developer and most
recently he was cofounder of Newlix Corporation, a company building a
Linux based appliance OS. Newlix was shut down due to lack of VC funding
in June of 2001, but he continues to promote the original flagship
product, the Newlix OfficeServer [http://www.gaaj.com/officeserver/], an
easy to install Linux based network appliance OS.
