Most corporate production environments use Windows and a version of Unix. Since Linux is the Unix system growing at the fastest rate and slated to overtake Solaris in the next several years, we thought it important to publish a book for programmers and administrators which covered both environments.-- Working examples of networking fundamentals and programming in Windows and Linux-- Interoperability issues addressed for file sharing, print sharing and dialup access-- System Administration issues solved for both systemsLinux and Windows co exist in many real-world corporate environments. The separate Windows and Linux applications run on all of the computers in the network, often times simultaneously. Having a guideline for how those systems overlap and co exist is crucial.This book covers interoperability in areas such as: Internet and intranet, dial-up, program, backup and restore, TCP/IP, and more. It also covers general networking topics such as system administration, performance and tuning, debugging, and discusses programming -- Java, Network, and Web. This book does not spend much time on set up but, rather, deals with tasks associated with the system and those responsible for it.This is for intermediate to advanced level system administrators and programmers working in a mixed OS (Windows and Linux) more
