Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am managing a server at my dorms and I want to accomplish something a little weird:
I want to solve two issues:
1. I have a problem with IP and MAC spoofing. How can I combat this?
2. I want a special configuration
I have a server with the following configuration and services:
a) three netcards:
- eth0 - internal network of the dorms
- eth1 - some cable uplink to internet (slow)
- eth2 - connection with other dorms and some other server that does snat and has a transparent proxy with larger bandwidth than the one on eth1
b) running squid transparently
c) default gateway is through eth1 to some server
d) I have three categories of users:
- non privileged - all internet traffic should go through eth1
- normal - http traffic should go through the fast connection (passed to the other server)
- high privilege - all internet trafic should go through the fast connection (eth2)
I have thought of 2 solutions for the second problem but none of them seems satisfactory...
I) use a second squid cache on my server with my local and the fast server as parents (offers authentication, but high privilege is not solved)
II) run a server in vmware on my server that has gateway the fast server; the privileged users get the virtual server as their gateway through dhcp, but I can fall into the MAC/IP spoofing trap and I am not so sure about the speed
