This project is really going on nicely, I am setting up a few Redhat/Fedora servers soon and I am finding it very useful so far.

Ok another one down... Chapter 16 - Secure Shell
  • SSH Daemon
  • Using SSH
  • Secure File Transfers
The chapter configures the SSH daemon and recommends some basic security settings and provides a basic intro to the SSH client for remote access.

It also explains the SSH FTP subsystem and Secure Copy facility (Not to be confused with FTPS), and has some example commands.

Hey, thanx for all the positive feedback. Remember to let me know about any errors/omissions or just poorly written explanations.

Thats Chapter 17... MySQL Server

It covers the initial configuration and the steps necessary to change the default root password for the server etc...

It also provides complete instructions for installing the phpMyAdmin web administration application, so you can manage your databases through a web browser.

It does not provide SQL examples as there are many tutorials on the Internet already.

Thats another chapter down, 18 - "Samba" server.

This chapter has the following main sections..
  • Setting Global Options
  • Creating User Accounts
  • Sharing Network Directories
  • Adding Network Printers
  • The Microsoft Client
  • The Samba Client

It provides all the information and configurations for establishing a standalone SMB server with network shares for your Windows computers to connect.

It also details the MS DOS commands necessary to map to the samba server, and also details and provides examples of the smbclient command for connecting Linux to MS computers.

At 15 printable pages it is currently the biggest chapter, and probably the most anticipated.

Here it is: http://www.brennan.id.au/18-Samba.html

Cheers,

Miles.

Hey thanks all.

Im still working on chap 19 atm, just cleaning up some minor documentation details before I release it.

I decided to also include NFSv4, so I am taking a little longer on this one. It'll be available shortly.

Cheers,

Miles...

OK, another one bites the dust - Chapter 19, Network File System..

This chapter covers the following sections...
  • Setting the Exports
  • Starting and Testing
  • Selecting the Server Version
  • Imports and Mounting
  • NFS Version 4
It details everything you need to configure your exports, also the details whats needed in the file system table (fstab) to mount the remote exports. The last section covers the configuration (export/mount) of the NFSv4 protocol implementation.

If you really want to "geek it up" (Linux to Linux connections), this chapter is for you..

Woohoo !!!

Im proud to announce the last chapter has now been completed - Shared Address Book using LDAP server.

The chapter covers the following topics:
  • Initial Concepts
  • Basic Configuration
  • Address Book Entries
  • Adding Some Security
  • phpLDAPadmin Web Administrator
  • Email Client Settings

It explains how the LDAP server is configured, some basic details on X.500 naming structures, how to enter address book entries on the command line. It also details how to set up a PHP web based administration application to access it remotely.

There is only a small listing of how clients are configured to connect, but I will get more details soon - its pretty easy though.

It currently stands at 20 chapters, and is 177 printable pages - I hope you enjoy it

Cheers,
Miles.

PS, I still need feedback...

Cheers mate.

Also if anyone knows of any more email client settings needed to use the LDAP address book described in chapter 20, then let me know the details and I'll add these to the list.

Im also after MAC clients etc...

Thanks,
Miles.
