Linux


Hey all!

I am interested in finding out all I can about Linux. My question is how is Linux Network Topology set up. Is this a regular topology i.e. IP (Internet), TCP UDP (Host to Host), HTTP and SMTP (Application). I hope I am asking this correctly.

Jen

Linux will normally TCP/IP yes. You're not going to be on the internet without it really...

Please try to use more informative thread titles in future, thanks.

You say "topology", but the things that you list (UDP, TCP, http, etc.) are protocols. "Topology" refers to how a specific network is interconnected.

confirming what Chris said, Linux uses all of the standard networking protocols.

Does Linux use the OSI model? (Im brand new to this OS) Also, would anyone know the easiest way to download Debian onto my computer system as a Dual OS?

I would suggest the questions you've asked aren't really good questions for a new user, even a technically experienced one. Servers use TCP/IP, etc... the oeprating system really doesn't matter so you're better off asking different questions. Nothing really specifically "uses" the OSI model. It's a model, it's not a real thing.

you can download yoru distro of choice from distrowatch.org, debian.org, iso.linuxquestions.org etc.
