Description

Linux routers are inexpensive, flexible, stable, adaptable, expandable, easy to administer, and based on proven technology. In this book, Tony Mancill shows you exactly how to implement, manage, and troubleshoot Linux routing for each of today's most common internetworking applications. Thoroughly updated for the latest technologies, Linux Routers, Second Edition covers dynamic routing, Quality of Service (QoS), the current Linux kernel, even next-generation IPv6 routing. Mancill covers every aspect of Linux routing: configuration, day-to-day administration, management, monitoring, and troubleshooting. You'll learn how to use Linux as an Ethernet router, a frame relay router, an Internet router, and even an extranet router. Mancill shows how the same Linux system can provide routing services alongside Web and DNS services; how to choose the right Linux hardware and software tools; and how to take full advantage of the rock-solid Linux environment to deliver maximum availability.show more
